Les Parisiens .....



~  On the steps of Le Petite Palais  Paris  ~

Soaking up the midday sun while reading a little Voltaire- Flaubert
or possibly my favourite .... Alexandre Dumas' Count of Monte Christo.




Linking with
"Our World Tuesday"
"Dreaming of Paris"

I love the expressions and body language. Of course, I'd love it more if I were sitting on those steps reading. I have a weekly meme on Mondays called Dreaming of France. I'd love it if you'd play along. And through the end of July, I have a giveaway of a $20 Amazon gift card and a copy of my novel The Summer of France. Enter the giveaway. Maybe you'll win. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

Students no doubt. Of course what a lovely place to sit on the steps by the river in the sun with your love.

Or maybe they’re tourists from Unley, Dianne, and he’s trying to work out from a Paris guide book how to find somewhere that they can catch up on the AFL scores, while she’s looking up “Carn the Crows” in an English/French dictionary.

locals I'd say with his well-worn trainers while she knows it's Ok to slip out of her sandals and hang out her bare feet.

Paris has such a gorgeous light, that you've captured beautifully. I found the Petit Palais a week or so ago, it's an inspirational place.
