I'm Just Going to Rest My Eyes


Been there and wanted to do just that!
( The Pantheon)


Perhaps a little too much vin with lunch?

GOOD NEWS!!
My luggage has turned up in Nashville and will be here by noon today!

Great new series of Strangers Sleeping! I feel like the guy with the wine, although I think I'll try to finish my wine before I fall asleep.

Wonderful photos! I really liked your Rue Mouffetard ones too.

There is an Antoine de Saint Exupery monument somewhere there? I wonder if there is a Little Prince monument as well?

Or, maybe the cigarettes got to his lungs? I've had to take up second hand smoking while in Europe! Great shots as usual!

I just found your blog and I am very pleased. I am French but have lived in the southern USA for years. Until my mom past away in 2002 I used to go to Paris 2 or 3 times a year to see her, but now I have not been back since 2006 and I miss it a lot. There are no French people around here to speak French, apart from the bakery and my husband never did master it. So, to look at your blog will be like being in my town again because of your beautiful photographs. Luckily I’m going there for a few days in Oct-Nov, but that will be too short. I’ll come back to look at more of your pics.

Oh, I know the feeling. I didn't see the Pantheon on my last trip but will be living just a block or two away in October. I have loved all of Antoine de St. Exupery's books since I discovered him in the early 80's. Wind, Sand, and Stars is my favorite.
Great photos.. I come every day for a preview of places to see and things to do.

I like to go from blogs to blogs to find new ones. I think this time I went on Original Art Studio and on the side of her blog, Paris caught my eye and I clicked on it. My husband and I were just marveling at your beautiful pictures. If you go to the categories on my blog, under France and under Paris, you will see I wrote posts on, for example Le Tour de France , http://avagabonde.blogspot.com/search/label/Tour%20de%20France, and other things. Merci de m’avoir rendu visite!

God, I love Paris. Just catching up today. Your shots make my heart break. Wish I could visit more often.

I absolutely love these images. Talk about natural. You've inspired me to sneak a few French people into my images.
