The Rich Jewelled Colours Of Paris.......

When I think of the colours that make up Paris
 I generally think of the soft subdued tones of beige - white - grey - crѐme - gold
elegant and sophisticated!

But Paris has another side - a vibrant richly jewelled persona
It can be seen in her fashion - food  - architecture and décore
and it never ceases to delight and amaze me!

From the lavish green copper domes of the Palais Garnier
to the spectacular art nouveau copula in Galleries La Fayette
and even to the delectable food halls  - boulangeries
and sidewalk awnings.

Reds - Deep Blues - Greens - Rich Golds - Violets
