The early bird catches the worm. This is true when you want to take photographs especially the ones with snow. If you wait for long, you end up photographing the muddy slush. Well, I didn't know all this when I got up today morning. On seeing the street covered in fresh snow, I suited up and was out of the door in record time.
The streets were empty. In my part of the city, the streets are always empty. What is surprising was even the avenue in front of Grand Palais was empty. There were people jogging despite the snow, tourists with their suitcases taking one last picture before leaving town and even others walking their dogs.
All through the month of December, the travel websites were writing about Paris in winter and putting up pictures of Paris covered in snow. Living here, I know there was no snow during Christmas and it was a hoax. But today, it is different. There was snow everywhere if you were an early bird. Now, there is only slush.
In case you missed, I have captured it in pictures. I am glad it snowed on Sunday. If it was during a working day, I would not have been able to capture it the same way as I could today.
