The Pont Alexandre III is one of the most emblematic bridges in Paris because of its architecture and location. Pont Alexandre III connects les Invalides on the Left Bank to the Grand Palais and Petit Palais on the Right Bank.

At its four extremities are huge 17 metre-high pylons crowned with gilt bronze sculptures of winged horses representing the Arts, Sciences, Commerce and Industry.
I was nominated by my friend Judy Dykstra-Brown to post one favorite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate.

If you are not interested, that’s OK.
