Last Easter I was in Paris, I was only in Paris for 8 days and I thought everything was going to be closed on Easter. Much to my surprise I was wrong! I was so happy that the city was alive and open on Easter Sunday. I spent the day on a bike ride tour through the city. The afternoon was spent at the Louvre. The line was the longest people had seen in years. It was the first Sunday of the month which meant the Louvre was FREE. I was standing in the courtyard of the Louvre and all of the sudden there was a huge hail storm. The long lines of people that were in line at the Louvre were caught in the storm. Of course this was a perfect opportunity for me to capture the moment. I stood without an umbrella in the courtyard being pounded by hail while I took these photographs. Happy Easter and Enjoy!
