Alexandre III Bridge: Quintessentially Art Nouveau
Alexandre III, built from 1896-1900 is the quintessential Art Nouveau bridge. Here are a few shots taken in perfect “menacing clouds” kind of weather (mind you, we didn’t get much else this year in Western Europe).
A gilded lion on the bridge and the Grand Palais in the background.
A classic view of the bridge and a good means to exercise manual focus and small DOF
I loooove those clouds.
