Thé Pour Deux?


This colorful window display I photographed several times at Place des Vosges.

There's always something fascinating about old teaboxes but these are particularly beautiful.

Hmm, I bet I like the boxes better than the tea, and this photo of them best of all!

Nice photo.

The colorful boxes, the way they're displayed, the reflection—there's nothing I don't like about this photo!

This took me back to moving home several decades ago, when dad procured a number of tea chests to use for the packing process. They weren't pretty like these ones, but I do remember how fine and solid they were. I'm guessing the removalists still do, too!

Very lovely title "One cap of tea enough for both of us".
You have taken this shoot at one of the my favorite places in Paris. Place des Vosges in tranquility, in peace with flowers and trees with little noble shops.
A nice scene of metal tea boxes fully filled with the tea of India, Formosa Island passing through canal of Suez for arriving to Paris.
Who knows, there is how many memories are inside of these boxes.
