The building looks very classic and stylish.

The man captured in this post looks like deep in thoughts.

Great series!

I rediscover Paris I like your photos of buildings and especially the wall of "je t'aime "

What an unique chandelier. So glad you thought to take a photo of it. Oh now that's quite a dapper looking gentleman. He looks as if he is showing compasion for the pigeon! What an amazing sight is the old church building, from the 1640's I believe. I can't imagine...

Happy you found the Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis Church; it's worth a visit!

The guy and the pigeon...priceless. Well spotted.

I thought that was amber, so that fooled me. Great quirky image. Of course it's the gentleman and pigeon, going about there business I am drawn to. This is the kind of people photography I enjoy doing and veiwing. I have to snap so many posed images that it is refreshing to see natural slices of life.

Very original chandelier!
The church looks beautiful and the photo is gorgeous! Shame I've never been there...

Thérèse said...

I love the "piece of conversation" between man and bird!

Julie said...

I don't think I am ever drawn to a pigeon going about its business ...

Ken Mac said...

for some reason, those lights in the first pic remind me a hat you would see on a girl doing the jitterbug. V, I emailed you. Talk to me!

Ken Mac said...

you had a favor to ask?

Virginia said...

KM, Email me again. I don't have yours. Yes a big favor s'il vous plait!

Virginia said...

Bergson, A compliment that you rediscover Paris here. Merci.

The gentleman at Palais Royal seems to be giving the pigeon the right of way. I especially loved this photograph.

The church was just a wonderful place to visit. The Morais is filled with fabulous sights of old Paris. Do not miss it! THanks Barbara!

Katie said...

Oooh I so want that chandelier! You've captured it wonderfully. As much as I miss Paris, I can't say I'd want to be there now during this cold snowy weather. I like to walk everywhere, but I also don't like being cold, so I fear I'd end up drinking all day in a cafe. Well, that might be fun too. Thanks for continuing to share your amazing Paris photos!

PJ said...

My goodness, Virginia. You are like the Energizer bunny. You just keep going and going. Bravo! This is a wonderful record of your trip.

Dusty Lens said...

Picture perfect! I'm not sure where this one is, but the light is so brighting is much brighter inside than some of the older Cathedrals. Love the organ here.

Starman said...

Hahaha....I LOVE your "favorite French tune". Who woulda thubnk Engelbert Humperdinck was French?

Petrea said...

The churches! So beautiful. I can never get too much of them. I love that the chairs are movable.

Great series.

Virginia said...

HA! Starman, you are absolutely right! Although "I'll Be Seeing You" is a song about Paris, it's time for another song. Merci!

Merci mes amis, I too loved all the churches. This one is so old and so special. I am glad you like it as well.
