Pollenating in Paris



Today's photos were taken with Genie and Marie last June at  Église Saint-Séverin, one of my favorite churches in Paris.  This lovely enclosed courtyard adjoins the church. We all three had great fun trying to shoot through the iron fence!

Oh, yes! It was such fun to try to squeeze the cameras between the bars and angle our arms to the right position for a photo. And who would have expected such a colorful garden behind the church? Good memories ... Beautiful photo!

I remember that very moment, ma chere amie! I remember too how cool were the benches inside as I lay down to get the shots of the twisted columns inside... What a wonderful day that was... Wish you were here today with us in Paris!

Gros bisous,
G

What a lovely way for all of you to stay in touch - outside of the challenging time difference!

Bon sejour to the two in Paris...and bon courage, Virginia!

These must be Hollyhocks? Love them!

Alexa said...

What fun you must have had! And what a good job you did of capturing this beautiful courtyard garden.

Harriet said...

These shots were worth the effort. Beautiful flowers in spring/summer are such a delight.

One of the best things about photography for the photographer is the memories that the images stir! Nice hollyhock image today, but your recollections of the moment and the friends who were with you makes it best.

It is a gorgeous shot. I wish one day we could all be there together.

Sure looks pretty.
I usually don't see flowers in Paris because of the time of year.

Jeanne said...

This is a lovely church. Jack said it well.. remembering good memories with the time you spent with your friends. You made this shot very interesting.

These are two gorgeous photos! Unfortunately, when I read your title I expected something different, being a Paris blog and all.

I know, my mind is a little off! :-))

What a gorgeous shot! I love these flowers, particularly their colour and height. You are lucky to have seen them in person.
