Super Moon. If you are a star gazer, you pretty much know what this is. I am a photographer and not a star gazer. So, I take this to be a good photo opportunity. The big question is where in Paris would I get a beautiful composition of the Super Moon. I decided on the popular bridge Pont des Arts. If you check this on Google Maps, you will have to zoom in to actually see the bridge on the maps.
Paris, once again, played truant on Sunday. The sky was overcast. As a result, the moon was not visible, even one and a half hours after sunset. There was a brief moment in which the lower edge of the moon was visible through the clouds. But it was not long enough to take a good picture.
With a lot of time to kill in the cold night on the bridge, there is one phenomenon I noticed. There were a lot of lovers on the bridge embraced in a passionate kiss ignorant about the surroundings. I do not have anything against kissing. It is a good mechanism to indicate passion or affection. While it is passion which is under scanner, why do people choose a bridge to kiss each other? Why is the bridge so important?
