Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Pont Neuf .......


~   Pres de Pont Neuf   ~
 
I love the eclectic mix of colours on Parisian posters
reminding tourists of the many things to be seen and experienced
 in this wonderful city of light.

Misty In The Mountains ....

 
 
 Misty skies over the River Dordogne in the south-west of France.
Dotted along the ridge are many beautiful and historic chateaux - the one you can see
in the distance was once owned by Josephine Baker

Night Skies over Paris ......


 
Crepuscule light over Paris
 brings with it a beauty unrivalled.
 
These pics were taken in and around Le Louvre
just after the sun had dipped below the horizon
leaving that wonderful soft golden hue

Snippets from Sarlat ......


 
Looking out across rustic roof-tops of the pretty medieval village of Sarlat
nestled in the beautiful Aquitaine area of rural south-west France.

An Elegant Entrance ........


Hotel Plaza Athenee  ~  Avenue Montaigne
 
Many famous faces have walked through this elegant doorway
with its stylish Hector~Guimard canopy
Rudolf Valentino - Grace Kelly -  Jackie Kennedy
to name but a few
 
.................................... 
 
Over the years I have summoned up the courage
to enter most of Paris's luxurious establishments
but at this doorway I have remained on the out-side
looking in ...... maybe next trip!
