The red coat required patience.

Wow! Awesome photos.. Did you climb all those steps? ohhhh, my poor knees ache just looking at them.

I am loving these photos and will enjoy trying to find these places when I am there.

17 more days.

Bonjour! C'est fantastique. Belle lumiere et rouge... Ok Hello .. this will be a regular time out. Too early for the wine but I can drink in the wonderful Parisian images.

Jilly said...

What fabulous photographs. Adore the gentleman with the saluki. How elegant. I'm looking forward to being part of your Paris trip.

I simply love the first picture about which one could sing "J'me voyais déjà..." from Aznavour

I can't wait for the next episodes from an american lady in Paris!

Virginia said...

Jilly,
My caption was almost," Who says the French don't have a sense of humor!" He was just great and stopped and posed his dog just pour moi! In fact everyone in Paris was incredibly friendly and helpful and I tried to return the favor!

D.C. Confidential said...

I like all of these, but that one of the woman in the red coat is magical and lovely! Well done.

alice said...

Two of my favourites in all your Parisian photos are here yet! I let you guess which ones...;-)

Ken Mac said...

those are great. Particularly the 1st and last! Just classic

angela said...

Such lovely photos, V. Love the ones of the chairs lined up and, oh. those steps...I'm looking forward to the next instalment

Wayne said...

There are two photos in this group I would have tried to take myself if I'd been there. But I'm not telling you which ones.

Paris looks good in the rain (or just after?) which is more than can be said for lots of cities.

Linda said...

Love the photos. Let me know the next time you come to Paris and if I am there I can show you some of my favorite photo ops.

Tash said...

You've got some classics there! I think the red coat stole our hearts.

Virginia said...

The "manteau rouge" didn't appear to be anything special in the camera. It was a pleasant surprise when I downloaded my photos. I might enter it in a camera club competition this Thurs. I have not had ANY luck before, maybe I'll get lucky this time.

Petrea said...

Oh, you did it! This is gorgeous! I tried, but all my photos of this stairway are awful. I'm laughing out loud, happy to see this beautiful shot!

Petrea said...

Happy to see all these shots, Virginia. Your new blog has a new fan.

Laurie said...

Thank you so much for sharing these, V. I love the way you compose your photos -- you make Paris look timeless, yet new. How on earth do you manage that? You are definitely supposed to visit this city ... and frequently! You make it come alive for all of us.

Ming the Merciless said...

Excellent photos! I love the first (Frenchman and his dog) and last one (stairs) the best.

Dusty Lens said...

One of my favorites. Woman in Red Coat. Perfect angle, somehow this reminds me of that movie I seen in 1st grade. A child chasing down a red ballon throughought Paris.

Could this be Samantha Brown from her show on the Travel Network, Passport to Europe?

elsa said...

Belles photos!

GrandAnglais said...

So you went up the butte! Did you take the funiculaire, or were you brave and walked up? The views are absolutely beautiful. Wasn't that red coat a godsend?
