Paris Rouge XLVIII - Le Sac à Main


What better way to spend a warm afternoon along the Seine. I toyed with black and white, but her great handbag was too good to pass up.

Great colour for the handbag, but it looks distressingly empty!!

V, could you have a look at my Palm SUnday post please? I am trying to identify what they are carrying instead of palms.

Wonderful, appropriate shot for the weather here in Paris. I do not think that there was a person alive in Paris who was not out in a park or waterside or cafe somewhere yesterday.

To Julie, Marie and I noticed the "boxwood" rather than palms around Paris as well. That was our guess based on the woody stems.

Bises,

What? You snuck over to Paris and didn't tell us? This photo could have been taken yesterday .... Love the bright colors!

It was wonderful to talk to you ... Bisou, M

What a great shot! I love the way they are scattered so close to the river bank! Who could blame them?

It's great in colour, V. If I had a big tote, I wonder if I'd be tempted to plump it up with a little newspaper.

I guess that's where all the "cool kids" hang out!
Her PINK bag really does stand out!

LOVE the perspective

Leif,
I know it is rather raspberry but don't tell that!!!! :)

Pamela said...

This just proves it! I was born in the wrong country!!
Yes the photo is best in colour..her bag and shoes..that hint of brown!
They are all so put together!

Harriet said...

Glad you decided on color for this one. Love the color of the cobblestones, the water, and the splashes of color provided by those enjoying the day.

Nice spot to congregate for lunch!!! Though I don't think I'd want to go back to work!!!

Alexa said...

Great shot, V! The bag and blanket definitely called for color. This looks like a pretty good spot to spend (or mis-spend) a sunny chunk of your youth—I know it was for me! :~}

Peter said...

Why didn't you also put Genie (15/4) and the St. Séverin flower (17/4) under "rouge"? :-)

Virginia said...

Peter,
OK M. Smarty Pants....I thought they had too much PINK! HA

BTW, I've been encouraged to make a Paris Rouge book on BLURB. Maybe I will~!

This is Belgium said...

definitely worth giving up the black and white for this purse !

We attended a picnic on the Square du Vert-Galant. Right there on the point of Île de la Cité. http://tiny.cc/xj2k1

I'm glad you left this au naturel. B+W wouldn't have been right. It looks like "The Scene" for 20s. The hot pink (magenta?) bag is a great focal point.
