Les Chaises - Palais Royal


Encore une fois vous demander? Certainement! At the gardens of the Palais Royal a photographer can find endless delights. Forgive me for returning again and again. On my last visit we stayed very close and of course there was la neige to make it even more delightful. This photo was taken last summer.

I've had a fascination for these chairs you find in many parks in Paris. They are so condusive to sitting, reading, napping? I'd love four for my patio back home!

Today I again join the Monochrome Weekend group of great photographers. Have a look here.

I like your chairs but what I like more is the allée (don’t know how to say that in English) with the trees on both sides. I am always tempted by road with high trees, or paths in the woods. Maybe because of my childhood in France when we often rode into the country and most of the roads were surrounded by high trees.

Vagabonde,
An allée is what I'd call it as well. LOVE THEM IN FRANCE!

They look rather uncomfortable. Maybe the French bring their own cushions?

Virginia said...

Alice,
Merci for the site. My daughter has the bistro chairs!

Starman,
I like the ones that slope back like the one in front here. I remember a nice afternoon spent in one with my feet propped up on the edge of a fountain at Tuileries enjoying some very good company and conversation.

Merci Dario, Yvi and Shell!

Such a beautiful and evocative composition, V! (And as much as I love ALL of your photos of Paris, you could do Palais Royal Daily Photo and get no complaint from moi.)

Thérèse said...

Paris Rouge, Paris bleu, les chaises de Paris... I love them all, your pictures Virginia!

Virginia said...

Virginia said...

A very nice memory of a day well spent in Paris. :)
