Bistro du Dôme


The dome of the Temple Sainte-Marie, in the Marais, can be seen in the background.

As some of you have requested,  Paris Rouge is in the making through Blurb. If you have a favorite photo you'd like me to include, leave a comment or email me. We aim to please!

Wonderful composition with the play on words and a very flattering view of this Protestant church. It has a very large door (rouge, bien sûr) which I just bet you have a photo of also!

It must be dreamy to live in the apartments on the right side of your photo! The fun area, the church bells - well, gosh, just to live in Paris! Sweet photo, V!

What a perfect scene! I could olook at this all day. I'm writing this down on my list of areas to explore in the future :)

It is such a wonderful scene, Virginia, from the shine from the sign on the left to the dome hovering above it. I love it.

So, can you translate your Blurb comment for the tech-challenged?

Gorgeous! I love the angle you photographed this. Seeing all of those wonderful buildings in one photo is great!

You know we were only a couple blocks down rue Saint-Antoine from Temple Sainte-Marie and I always thought it was Saint-Antoine and the source of the street's name. My bad for not checking it out more closely. You know what they say about assuming.

Love the layers and the light. Bien fait, comme toujours, V!

Pamela said...

Just lovely V ! Love the light coming off the building to the left...you always capture the moment beautifully!

This is a perfect example of the foreground and the background playing for that little extra bit of attention... and such subtle colors...lovely!

Virginia said...

Ann, thank you for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. We love Paris, don't we!

Kathy, Well I"m giving it a go. I"ve bought another Paris book from Jean Luc so I"m thinking it might be worth a try!

Pamela,

Alexa, my daughter had a sip from you glass tonight! We both enjoyed the moment!
