Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Rasberries ..........



~    Le Pain Quotidien   ~
 
 
tarte aux framboise
served with a warm creamy bowl of café crème
 
On my way to the Palais Royal Gardens - I dropped into this little café
and ended up staying and hour or so ....  sipping coffee and
chatting to others at the long communal table.
That's what one does in Paris

Cloudy in Urbino .......



Cloudy skies framed by wonderful Medieval architecture
in the small hilltop town of Urbino Italy


 
Rafaello Sanzio's hometown
or as we know him as "Raphael"
was born here way back in 1483
 
 
 
As I turned to put my camera away
I spotted this lady enjoying a gelato on the run
and couldn't help but capture her vibrant gold shawl
and aquamarine shoes set against the rustic street-scape
 I would really love shoes just like that

Un Cycliste Parisien .......

 
 
Round every corner - down every street
When in Paris
there's always a photo - waiting to be captured
and a story to be told
 
It was very early morning
I wonder where this guy was heading for ?
 maybe going to work ..... or heading home
I'd like to think he was pedalling to the corner boulangerie
for croissants and chouquettes
