Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

La Maison Rose ........




This delightful pink house was home to Claude Monet
 and his family for over 43 years

He painted it pink to match the delicate cherry blossoms, tulips
 and soft crab-apple blooms in Spring

Passage Du Grand Cerf ........




I love this network of passages through-out the city of Paris
 which link street to street .... undercover and lit with the loveliest of lanterns
 


Just a stone-throw away from my vacation studio in the 2e arrondissement
these wonderful walkways gave me the benefit of being able to go out shopping of an evening
in a secure and sheltered environment

The architecture in these passages is truly amazing.

A Florist By Night .....




 Some of the florists in Paris stay open at night
I love peeking through the windows into a wonderland of colour

Ladurée on Rue Royale .....




Taking a peek through the windows of the famed French patisserie
 Ladurée on Rue Royale
The reflections give a glimpse of the wonderful old architecture
that surround this affluent area.

In case you're wondering ...  I did pop in for a glass
of pamplemousse rosé accompanied by one of their
delectable macarons ... well worth the visit!

Dans La Rue de Paris #1 .........

 

Place de L'Abbe Basset   5eme Paris


Every-day Parisians doing what they normally do
walking the dog ... taking a leisurely stroll to the local kiosque
for Le Journal and perhaps a magazine or two.

 


They walk everywhere .... maybe that's what keeps them neat and trim!

The Crepuscule Hour .....



~   Tuileries Gardens   Paris   ~

The prettiest time of the day in Paris is
that beautiful time when the sun slips quietly below
the horizon ... blanketing all with the most amazing
soft golden-pink light.

A photographers delight!
