Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Foreign.

Thinking about this challenge, I realized that I have an entire trove of old B&W negatives and photos, taken eons ago on my travels—foreign in both time and space.

But, looking at them, I see that the essence of some places never changes—

Where is this?

  14. I’m guessing the Seine too, the narrowness of the steps and the trees along the river scream Paris. ;)
