Parisian moments are national flags hoisted and ready to do battle across the pond in Jardin du Luxembourg, and
Parisian moments capture the lacey underside of the Eiffel Tower,
black & white Image courtesy our eldest son - it was take on a footpath by the River Seine, close to where he and his family lived. Did you notice the sunlit heart that the ladies are walking towards?
.....and maybe one day it will be possible to visit Paris again. Two years ago today I was in Panama, and that was the last time I left the country. Never in my adult life has it been so long.ReplyDelete
It is also two years ago just now that we were overseas in Crete.Delete
Beautiful photos, Rosemary! The hat on the polka-dot girl is very cute, too.ReplyDelete
The young girls in Paris have that je ne sais quoi.Delete
Hello Rosemary, Paris is always near the top of my places to visit. I especially want to see the musical instruments in the Conservatoire and antiquities (and other art) at the Louvre. But to be honest, I could also another trip to England--these decisions are so difficult!ReplyDelete
Hello Jim - I am not contemplating any visits overseas this year, but fortunately we have plenty of interesting places that we can visit here. It might even be the same next year and even the year after - no one knows what the future holds.Delete
Beautiful photos, as always! And thanks for pointing out the sunlight heart -- I would have missed it otherwise!ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed Debra.Delete
Those photos seem to sum up Paris very well, though to be honest I've never been, always preferring to head for the French mountains and countryside.ReplyDelete
Like Venice everyone should visit Paris at least once - give it a try one day.Delete
Oh how I miss Paris - granddaughter Jasmin said she even dreamed we three were back there again a couple of nights ago, and the sky was pink!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots - each one tells a great story. They say right now it's so wonderful there with no tourists, little traffic and nothing going on - one can walk quietly and concentrate on the the fabulous architecture and nature.
Happy Easter to you and J dear Rosemary - Mary xx
I have visited Paris so many times over the years, the first time was when I was a teenager. When my son lived there for 10 years we were always popping over - I miss it too.Delete
I feel like I had an Parisian outing. Wonderful photos, esp. the tower.ReplyDelete
Thank you for your kind comment hart.Delete
Such moments can be created at any beautiful city but sure Paris is the city of Light.
We've been there several times, during the day and at night for indulging in its many lights.
Happy Easter to you and yours!
Dear Mariette - Paris feels almost like a second home to us we have been there so many times. Happy Easter to you and Pieter.Delete
Understandable as you are very close to it; we're not!Delete
Oh, thank you for the memories of Paris, Rosemary. Like everyone, I miss travel, and miss Paris. The little boats immediately took me back to a sunny afternoon near the pond at the Luxembourg gardens. The candles at Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower - just six years since we were there, and we wonder if we will ever go overseas again. Thank you for showing this gorgeous city. Happy Easter Rosemary.ReplyDelete
I am pleased that this post brought back happy memories for you Patricia - I have the very same thoughts myself about whether or not we will ever go overseas again. We certainly wont be going anywhere for the forseeable future. Hope you are continuing to enjoy a Happy Easter.Delete
That is the first thing I noticed in Paris, the Metro Gates, all over Paris.
The photo of the 2 ladies makes me smile...same height, same hips, same everything.
Dear Gina - I think that those two little French ladies are adoreable - my eldest son generously said that I could use it.Delete
Love these Parisian moments, make me remember when I used to live there . The black and white photo with the illuminated heart is magicalReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed the Parisian moments Jane and the black and white photo.Delete
Thank you for sharing those wonderful photos. It is many, many years since I was last in Paris,ReplyDelete
it brought back many memories. I hope you had a Happy Easter.
I hope that you have and are continuing to enjoy a Happy Easter Susan - glad that this post brough back many memories, I didn't want to show stereiotypial images of Paris.Delete
Very beautiful and wonderful pictures.. Interesting post..ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your trip with us.Have a nice week.
Thank you for your kind comment and visit Justcherry.Delete
Beautiful photos of a beautiful city. The first one made me laugh - we saw many similar sights in Paris.ReplyDelete
I am pleased it brought a smile to your face Lorrie, we all need that at the moment.Delete
A gorgeous collection. Will we ever. . . .?ReplyDelete
Your guess is as good as mine!Delete
Dear Rosemary - Nice selection of the photos of beautiful Paris. The second monochrome image made my heart warm and wish the time come soon when elderly people can enjoy outing carefree. I’ve never known the underside of the Eiffel Tower is so beautiful.ReplyDelete
Dear Yoko - I am pleased that you enjoyed the monochrome image - I am grateful to my son for letting me use it. When I stood beneath the Eiffel Tower I suddenly realised just how complex and attractive it looked.Delete
Beautiful photos Rosemary. I adore Paris, I've visited twice and hope to go again. The heart that the ladies are walking towards is a wonderful capture.ReplyDelete
I must let my son know just how many people have enjoyed seeing his photo.Delete
Very nice. Just watched the Art of France on TV tonight. Toured most of the city of Paris twice on the same day (our UK bus driver was hopelessly lost for two hours circling the outer suburbs in the days before sat- nav before eventually finding the correct set of roads)So we did take in a large variety of different signs. Seen more of Paris that time than any other trip.ReplyDelete
I have spent so much time in Paris that it feels almost like a second home, especially as my eldest son and family lived there for more than 10 years.Delete
Hector Guimard really did design fabulous Art Nouveau Metro entrances to mark the railway stations below, before WW1. Unfortunately they weren't protected until much later, by which time some had been destroyed and removed.ReplyDelete
You are correct, sadly they were disregarded for decades and could all have been destroyed forever. The 86 that remain represent roughly half of the original collection.Delete
The Eiffel shot is my favourite.ReplyDelete
