Coup de Foudre

 
Daughter Melissa and Eva

Mon premier voyage, notre première journée!  As we strolled down Boulevard du Montparnasse that afternoon, la Tour welcomed us to Paris.  This is where I fell in love!  The rest is history.

This is wonderful, V. Wish I had a photo of my "coup de foudre" Parisien. I still remember it though, even all these years later!

I love that there is so much to look at it this photo. The balconies, the motorcyles, and a peek a boo Eiffel Tower. All glistening with a recent rain.

Owen said...

Ah Virginia, but who cannot fall in love with Paris ? Especially when la Tour Eiffel peeks through trees or into apartment windows...

Virginia said...

Owen, this was my view of her and she won my heart. You're right , who can resist??

Oh Paris! Would a great image...the street, the little cafés and those balconies. You've captured it all.

Elizabeth said...

Lovely. Looks like something right out of the 50s. If there were a way to make the little girl's coat red...

Wonderfully atmospheric in the afternoon dampness!
