Guess Where I Went Today? - Luxembourg Gardens Again!

Oh yes, I am back in Paris ! Today, after a delicious lunch off rue Mouffetard ( my old stomping grounds) we headed to Luxembourg Gardens for a photo shoot. I found some new and interesting things to photograph that I had not seen on previous visits. Today just a few. Many more to come.

More - yes, please. I love the little girl shot in particular.

Stunning. Those wide open doors onto the sunshine. Ah, me!

Definitively an air of farniente!

How lucky to be able to have stomping grounds in Paris.

Love that second photo. A lot.

Are you keeping France nice for me. Later this month I will be there. Outside the photography shot is so well observed. Always such wonderful light.

I'm glad that the City of Charleston landscapers are not in Paris or they would have a palmetto tree in every one of those planters! That's a stunning photo - great angle.

I had to look up the word farniente. Leave it to the French to have a word that means "pleasant idleness."

Isn't it a nice feeling to be able to say that you have "old stomping grounds" in Paris? Luxembourg Gardens is such a good place to profitably waste a summer day.

Bob, I'd like to have the time to just sit and read in Luxembourg Gardens. I'm always running around like a mad woman snapping photos.

B.,
France awaits your arrival!! :)

Therese,
Pleasant idleness. WEll the French have that one nailed!

All good photos but I love the second one. Just brilliant!

Well, there's no disputing that palm-tree evidence. How wonderful! This is a lovely group of shots, Virginia ~ I want to walk into that second photo.
