how many clichés are in this photo? well, there is the Louvre, the bare trees, and one may include a Dutch angle. the stairs? I am not sure. the one cliché missing is walking a calm Paris with someone by one's side. there is something to not walking Paris alone, though like going to restaurants alone, there is no problem with this in Paris... but in walking around, in a non-hurried way, we know better.
