Pont Marie in Paris by Photojournalist Clay McLachlan
The Pont Marie crosses over the Seine from between the Right Bank and the Île Saint-Louis in Paris.
From this bridge you can see past the Île Saint-Louis all the way to the Left Bank and the dominating view of La Tour d'Argent. It's a great walk: you can stop for a boule (or two!) of Berthillon ice cream and continue your promenade to the next bridge, where you can stare at Notre-Dame on the Île de la Cité.
And when you get tired of these spectacular views you can stop and sit on a bench to marvel at your good fortune to be exactly where you are in that moment.
Technical Details: iPhone 3Gs, Hipstamatic app, John S lens, Ina's 1969 film.
