Quai de Conti, 1 pm, December 2003
Chances are if you stroll along the Left Bank just past the Pont des Arts you’ll see these boats, looking exactly as they do in this picture.  They’ve been there as long as I’ve been going to Paris, and I doubt if they ever move.  This was one of those heavily overcast days when the light can make photography difficult, but in this case I think it made for a stronger result -- there are no shadows or distractions, so all the focus is on the details.
