Silly Lists: A Guilty Pleasure

“A blog about Paris posted a photo from one of those stupid lists on the web. You won’t believe what happened next.”

If you are like me, you no longer click on such come-ons. But I’m still a bit of a sucker for lists if I think they will involve Paris or France. I click to for 2 reasons: To take pleasure in what I believe are inaccuracies–stupid Internet!–and to make sure the country and city I love are included (Go frogs!). The latest, from Thrillist, satisfies on both counts. “The 10 Most Photographed Places in the World” includes Paris–natch–but claims that this Pigalle attraction is more photographed than the Eiffel Tower. Or Notre Dame. Or the Seine. Seriously?

    Or as one commenter put it: ” The Top 10 Unscientifically, Non-representative Photos of Famous Places Somebody Could Get Hastily from the Public Domain.”
