Today, meet the artist. He word knee pads so he could draw the grid, and later the entire picture on the sidewalk. When he spotted me, he kindly got up, posed for photos and showed me what he would create. He promised he would be done in "trois heures". I made sure that my afternoon included a walk back over the bridge to see it. Yesterday's post was the new sketch that he had just started. was The photo below is the one he was working on that morning. Encounters like this are what make my trips to Paris so very special for me.


In 2013, I walked up on a street artist laying out the grid for a Picasso chalk drawing. Stop in tomorrow to see the results and the artists as well.

Le nu

This window along the Palais Royal arcade, didn't seem to be part of a shop. Interesting mélange.

Sunday Church Series - Église Saint-Etienne-du-Mont

The other day, a friend reminded me of the movie, MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. I took this photograph in the pouring rain early one evening in Paris. These are the steps beside Saint Étienne du Mont,  where the Gil was picked up each evening at midnight.

Le coucher du soleil

If you are lucky enough to catch sunset on the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette, you are lucky enough. I've had this as my screen saver for while. I share this loveliness with you.

 If this basket of warm baguettes doesn't make you want to "lick the window", nothing will. Vive la boulangerie!

Le carrousel

This sweet little carrousel at Luxembourg Gardens delights the children as they try to catch the rings with their little batons.

Chanel, les Chaussures

Didier Ludot, luxury consignment shop, is a window I never miss,  when at the Palais Royal. I've left many nose prints against their windows. What a delight to see the Diors, Chanels and so many more. Today, les chaussures de Chanel.

Paris Rouge - L"escalator

You either love the architecture of Centre Pompidou of you don't. I'm somewhere in between! At night the red escalator is pretty cool. It's high tech architecture was designed by Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano, along with Gianfranco Franchini. It opened in 1977.

Sunday Church Series - Église Saint-Eustache

This beautiful Gothic church, built between 1532-1632 is one I would highly recommend. I love the church itself, but outside the contemporary sculpture, Écoute, is a favorite of mine as well.

This arch welcomes you to the Place des Vosges. Take a few minutes, or longer, to relax on a bench in the park, then stroll around the arcades and window shop or stop for a glass of wine at the cafés and restaurants.
