Earlier this year I had the delightful task of photographing this little lady in Paris. A long way from her Oklahoma City home she sparkled and shone as bright as any Parisian lights. And Paris is not easily outshone. I heard these words recently which I think go a long way toward illuminating the splendor that is indeed Paris.

“How is anyone ever going to come up with a book or a painting or a symphony or a sculpture that can compete with this great city. You can’t. Because you look around and every street, every boulevard is its own special art form. And when you consider that in this cold, violent, meaningless universe that Paris exists, these lights,  I mean – come on! There’s nothing happening on Jupiter or Neptune but from way out in space you can see these lights, the cafes, the people drinking and singing. I mean for all we know – Paris is the hottest spot in the universe”
