Le Carrousel et la Tour


This is one of the most charming carrousels in Paris. The view's not bad either.

Hi Virginia,

I love the wonderful photograph, the Eiffel tower in the background makes for such a fun place to ride the beautiful old carousel.

What a gorgeous shot Virginia, the carrousel looks very elegant and with Le Eiffel in the background as the finishing touch, perfect! I think the M M below would be much more romantic.. like Mirielle et Matheau, together forever!!

I know just the spot and you have created a perfect vision of both the carrousel and our beloved TE.

It would be fun to ride the carrousel horses and come around and around, again and again to view the Eiffel Tower view! Did you ride the carrousel, V?!

Jack said...

Excellent, Virginia. If you keep shooting pictures, one of these days you are going to be pretty good!

Haa, to be young again, and to be allowed to climb on such a carroussel, and to enjoy a tour or two...

I knew Genie would love this shot -- two of her favorite Paris elements! Very nice perspective, Virginia!

When we were living in Paris, and then in Issy les Moulineaux, we used to take the girls there, we all loved that carousel, and you are so right about the view, what's not to like about having the Eiffel Tower hanging around for a backdrop... When I was living in Paris as a student years ago, the window of my "chambre de bonne" framed the tower, could see it by all the different lights... that was heaven.

And would love to see you in January if you will be here then...

I love this carousel,too! And the one at the foot of the Sacre-Coeur is perfect for photos like this as well.
