What a gorgeous spot of color against those buildings!

How fabulous! What a lovely photo with the water, the colour, the buildings. You are lovesick, Virginia.

Weather is supposed to be gorgeous on Saturday -- you've inspired me to head to that fountain!

I love this exuberance with the elegance in the background ~ a beauty, Virginia! And right back at you.

With the sun sparkling on the water, it almost makes you feel like kicking off your shoes and running through it! What a happy picture!

Virginia said...

Sandy,
Oui, but I've never had the courage to try it!

La Mom,
I thought about your hilarious blog when I did the Parc Monceau photos below.

Jilly,
Hopeless, aren't I!!!

Shell,
This has you written all over it!

Amy,
Thank you for your visits and nice comments. I too loved these funky St. Phalle sculptures against the old church in the background.

I love the Stravinsky fountain.

Inge said...

Petrea said...

Oh, too sweet, tous suite!

Katie said...

Delightful photo of a really fun fountain. My 1986 college yearbook photo is of me posing in front of this fountain, taken the year before when I was studying in Paris. Oh to be 20 again and living in Paris!

Virginia said...

Katie,
Oh to be living in Paris at any age! ;)

Daryl,
That's where my heart is!

Starman,
It is fun isn't it!

Petrea,
HA!

Inge,
Actually I've never been in the museum there. I hope to see it one day soon.

Alexa said...

As Katie said—only in my case it was 20 years earlier (and this wasn't there)!
V -- must admit, it's not my fave Paris museum (not even close), but, boy, do I love this fountain! Thanks!

Peter said...

A nice message from a real friend! :-)

Virginia said...

Alexa, I've not been inside but I'm not a huge fan of a lot of contemporary art. I do hope to visit next time and will let you know!

Peter,
Merci mon ami et tu aussi!!!
