Hi Virginia,

I love L'homme Rouge in front of l'Opera Garnier.
Also how wonderful the new photo of the Eiffel Tower is, in your header.

Hope that you are having a lovely weekend
Hugs

You know, I have never seen L'HOMME ROUGE!!!! I don't remember this at all...sheesh, it's been nine years since I have been....

This is Belgium said...

I must confess that I have been so many times right there at that spot and never noticed the homme rouge ! ai ai
I am going to Paris next week and hope to find the time to take the metro to the Opéra, just to see your little man

If only he had a little red scarf flowing from his neck...........

It doesn't mater how small the 'objet rouge' is Virginia, you will always find it! Is this the 'no walking' little red man??

Virginia said...

Harriet, that's funny. A great addition I think.

Perth,
Yes it is and doesn't he look like he means business!

Belgium,
Next week??? Awwww. Le sigh

Anita, I wish I could find the l'homme vert too!

Carolyn,
Thank you

Haha, my first thought was "wow, I have never seen him!" until I remembered just how great your photo-eye is! Excellent!

I want to focus on the oh-so beautiful Opéra Garnier, but my eye keeps returning to the little red man. I love the hands-on-hips stance, like he's saying, "Don't even think of crossing the street right now!"

Virginia said...

Alexa, as Mary and I like to say, "Non, non et NON! " :)

Interesting night shot. I like the way the Plan de Quartier stands out.
