Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Place du Tertre .....

there's something magical about Place du Tertre
with it's eclectic mix of artists and painting styles
I particularly loved this work with it's vibrant colours
and enjoyed chatting to the artisan
about the highs and lows of trying to make a living
 as an artist up in Montmartre

blue skies - emerald seas ........

Emerald Coast -  Brittany

I captured this pretty French sky on a day when visibility was very poor
but liked it because of the softness of pastels
green and blue and white

in the far distance you can just see Mont St-Michel

pretty window in Brittany ....

a little vignettes which caught my eye
in the pretty village of Pontrieux
near the north-west coast of rural France

the red and the gold .....

touches of red and gold are seen every-where in Paris
they sit beautifully against lovely golden street-scapes
as the French would say
aesthetically pleasing to the eye

blue skies over the palais royal ......

Parisians love to take-the-air
read -soak up a little sun or just sit and contemplate
and what better place to do that than the exquisite
Jardins du Palais Royal

life is like a carousel .....

 " life is like a carousel - sometimes you're up
and sometimes you're down
and sometimes you just go round and round"

This lovely carousel is situated in front of the elegant Hotel d'Ville
and no matter what the weather,  it is always there
I love the music - the colours
and the atmosphere it creates

skywatching over Paris ......

skies aren't always blue over Paris
in fact out of the many times I have visited
they are usually a light blue/grey which is the perfect backdrop
to this city's wonderful golden architecture
and terra-cotta chimney pots
