Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

stolen moments .....



from across the Seine  ~
 
 
I felt like the paparazzi filming a stolen kiss
but with my new zoom lens it was a moment in time
that needed to be captured

soft grey skies ..........



 
Soft grey skies frame the pretty luxembourg gardens
 
I captured these shots last autumn just as the leaves were
changing into burnished gold ....  which complimented perfectly
with the delightful yellow fall chrysanthemums and gold garden plantings

burgundy pleasures ....




a glimpse through an archway
somewhere in beautiful Burgundy
 
they were closed ... what a pity!

salt green meadows .......



~   Mont Saint-Michel   Normandie France  ~
 
soft lilac skies over salt green meadows
 
on our way back to our holiday home 
we bought salt-meadow lamb from the local boucherie
which we cooked with garlic butter and muscadet wine Yumm ....

it's a long way to the top .....



~   Montmartre   ~
 
no I didn't walk but took le- funiculaire on the way up
and le petit train on the way down

under paris skies ...........



 
 
nothing prettier than Paris in the golden hour
not quite day .... not quite night
just  beautiful

village saint-paul ........




~   A village within a village   ~
 
cobbled alley-ways, medieval walls
a wealth of artisan work-shops and hole-in-the-wall hide-aways
 
I love this country style hamlet in the Marais district
where I can spend hours just mozzying around
sneaking a peek through atelier windows
and drinking in the atmosphere of a by-gone era.

near the old port of Saint-Malo
