Paris Rouge VIII

Hotel de Ville, Paris
( Paris City Hall)

Thought I'd run out didn't you? Mais non.

A café less than a block from Notre Dame and the Hotel de Ville
I must go back when it's open. I had so much fun photographing this charming place. The wisteria vine was just amazing. I might sneak in another photo from here before I stop!

I don't think you could ever run out of beautiful images...xv

Both these photos are simply lovely! The red really does add that special je ne sais quoi. Where exactly is the cafe near Notre Dame? I've never seen it, and now I so want to go there! Meet you there for a light lunch?

I hope the door opens to the inside.

I took a photo of this exact doorway when I was in Paris in June!! I loved the wisteria growing up beside the door and covering the front of the building.

Virginia, your photos are simply delightful. Thanks for the smiles! I need them.

ET Suzy,
I'm thrilled you enjoy my photos!

This is the best I can do. If you are looking at ND, go down the left side, the side street is off to your left. When I took this, if I turned to my left, I saw ND!

It is a delightful place, oui???

Starman, Actually I think this door was inoperable. There was another entrance. I love that they made way for the vine!

I still have photos left. I don't want to stop. It will be like closing the book!

Is this "Au Vieux Paris d'Arcole?" If it is, their website includes a map.

In my photo from last year, I focused on the parrot above the door!

Virginia said...

Yes it is! I see it was built in 1512 so is it any wonder that wisteria vine is so enormous. I'd guess it's not that old but close! ha. If you stand right here and look to your left, Notre Dame is looming straight ahead. I'll post that photo one day soon. Thanks for the information!

Ooo la la! Bravo Virginia! The tree, the reds against the browns, greens, shapes, table, I am swept away traveling virtually via your photo and I'm in MA. I was missing Europe and Paris and here you are taking this eye-food-for-the-soul. Keep up the great work and thank you for sharing.
