Bleu in Paris VI- Volets Bleus


I have visited the Église Saint Paul - Saint Louis in the Marais many times. I always like to use the 
side entrance which opens onto this charming little alley.

Hi Virginia,

Your photograph is fabulous and love the bleus of the volets, that seem to look better the longer they stand.

Happy week
Carolyn

The midday sun brightens this beautiful narrow alley, making some distinctive shadows of the lantern and cascading flowers... love this.

I love the blue "volet" and the flowers at the windows! During my recent stay I saw a lot of blue in Paris!

Extremely charming! I love the lighting!

How do the Europeans make such wonderful window boxes? It must be in their genes, and yet many of us in the USA are carrying European genes without the window-box-making gene. Hmmm. Maybe it is the air?

This photo with the amazing French Blue shutters just takes my breath away.

Bonjour chère Madame.
Votre regard est étonnant car quoi de mieux qu'une personne qui se laissera guidée par son coeur tout comme vous le faite.
Loin des politiques les citoyens américains et français ont parcouru un long chemin ensembles.
Parfois dans la joie et aussi dans la tristesse.
Vos photographies, Madame, renforce le chapitre joyeux de notre histoire commune.
Continuez merci.

Bzzz... (c'est ma signature)
