La Défense

La Défense is a business district in the West of Paris. It’s vast. It seems like there are no cars for miles; it eerily quiet, only the sound of rushing wind.

La Grande Arche de la Défense is an enormous hollow cube at one end of La Défense. It is a monument to humanitarian ideals.

The Canopy under the Arch looks almost organic.

It’s an unreal, futuristic environment.

But a couple find it a nice place for a picnic. Another arch, a monument to something very different, can be seen in the distance.
