Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

A Splash Of Red......


~ Plaza Athenee     Avenue Montaigne ~


 Signature red awnings and red geraniums trailing over
delicate lace ironwork balconies
Red - Red - Red
or as the French would say
La Belle Rouge!

I love catching the splash of red amongst
the rich green of the chesnut trees

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Gorgeous indeed but this can be said about all of avenue Montaigne... Have you ever seen a movie named "Fauteuil d'Orchestre" (Avenue Montaigne in English) with Cecile de France? It is excellent... Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Gosh, DIanne, Lovely composition. I think red is the signature color there indeed. I've seen photos taken from the balconies At Plaza Athenee here but not the red awnings with the red floral baskets. What a place! But I'm sure not in my budget! :)
