Paris: Princess Diana

This is a replica of the flame from the Statue of Liberty but has become the place to pay homage to Princess Diana. It is near the road where she was in the fatal accident. People come and place flowers here. I took this photo on a cold and snowy day in December. I'm posting it because on my Kissimmee Daily Photo Blog I have a post about a temporary museum dedicated to her.

I used to go to Paris twice a year to see my mother, usually in March and in September. In 1997, when Princess Diana died I did go to Paris in September, about 3 weeks after her accident and drove to the site. I took many pictures of the flowers and drove in the tunnel and took pictures of the marks left by the car. They are not digital photos but you are giving me the idea to have a post to show them, sometimes. It was such a terrible loss. There were so many mourners at the site when I was there.
