Paris Nights, Paris Lights

I wrote to ask Eric Tenin who writes the blog Paris Daily Photo if I might use a couple of his photos again to create a digital collage. He graciously wrote back,
"Bonjour William,

Of course you may post your collage on your blog, I'll be honored (once more, as I do remember what you did the first time with my clock photo!)

Bonne journée."
How fun to be writing to someone living in Paris! Eric took three photos of Paris lights at night. I ended up with one of my crazy collages, but hopefully you'll like it! Be sure to click on the picture if you would like to see a larger version of it.

Paris nights,
Paris lights,
strolling through
the city of love.

City sights,
city delights,
tonight we may be
falling in love!

(Of course, I had to write a short poem to go with it.)
I know you would enjoy visiting Eric's blog to see his original photos. He posts a new photo of Paris every day. I love them so much that I have them delivered to my email. If you click on the name Paris Daily Photo it should take you there.
One of the layers I used in the collage is from Pink Lotty's "Cracked Papers," the lamppost is from C. Renee's kit "French Cafe," and the bench from Holliewood's kit "Enchanted."
