Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

The Artist .........

Monsieur L'Artiste sketching a profile

Did he mind that I was capturing the moment ?
thankfully not one little bit.

Flower-Seller ..........

~   Rue Montorgueil   ~
I love this moment where the snappily dressed Monsieur was going to buy
 a pretty bouquet of spring flowers ... but alas
he had just purchased a petit morsel to eat and  Dratt!!
 not quite enough money ......  what a pity.

Le Nemours ....

Café Le Nemours   Place Colette
I love to drop by Café Le-Nemours for a jus de pamplemousse-rose
on my way to Rue de Rivoli or La Seine or the artsy Left Bank
Delightfully quaint and perfect for people watching
or just soaking up the ambiance
 of this amazing city.
Location for many movie scenes
including Angelina Jolie sitting right here on this corner
 in the opening scene of "The Tourist "

Viva la France .......

~    City of Light    City of Love   ~
I snapped this couple smooching along an avenue in Montmartre
about 20 mins later I felt a tap at my elbow and it was the lovely Monsieur
asking if I could forward him a copy of the photo
of course I said yes!

French Village ........

Soft morning clouds over the little French village of Trelat
not a sound to be heard but the chattering of birds

Le Marais ......

Cobblestone streets wind in and around this charming
olde-world area of Paris .... it's the perfect quartier to be a flaneur
for a day or two or three.
"A walk is not a parade or a race.
 It's a succession of instants
 anyone of which can illuminate a lifetime"

Dark Clouds Gathering ........

~   Plage de Port-Mer    Brittany France    ~
Upon clicking the button to capture this peaceful sea-side scene
I noticed a few dark clouds gathering on the horizon!!
Sure enough it wasn't long before I felt the first heavy spots of rain
and quickly scrambled for shelter to protect my camera and myself.
Skies are forever changing!!
To see what's happening
in other skies around the world
