Walking In


I've already posted at least two photographs from this stroll through the Palais Royal, that rainy day last January. Fini? Bien sûr que non!!!  This chubby cheeked boy was just walking into my shot. I have more. I hope you won't mind.

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Ah, les colonnes de Buren, one of the most controversial structures to hit Paris in the last thirty year. Another remnant of the Mitterand presidency. I love the Louvre pyramid, or la Grande Arche in la Défense, but I have never quite gotten used to these striped things I must confess. Great shot, Virginia. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Wonderful reflections here Virginia and the little fella too cute, we were on the same wavelength today! Looking forward to more. Have a great weekend.

Some days I like les colonnes de Buren, others I'm not so sure. Today, I like them!

Sweet said...

Don't know the colonnes de Buren, but the photo is very nice and the boy looks perfect there. Gives movement to the shot.
Have a great weekend.

I will not mind at all... These little guys were adorable, running through the rain and over/around the columns. Glad you were clicking away!

Wow, I've missed some great photos this week. The one from summer, 2009 made me feel all nostalgic, and it's not even my memory.

this is Belgium said...

mind? bien sûr que non ! adorable, the guy and the picture

Alexa said...

Shell took the words right out of my mouth. And mind? Mais non! Bring it on—especially when your shot includes an adorable petit garçon.

I like his hat. I want one.

Fábio Martins said...

Very good framework (i don't know if in english is framework or other word). Sorry my english

Virginia said...

Fábio, framework works perfectly and I think you for the nice comment!

Davide, thank you for visiting my blog today and leaving such a nice comment. I hope you will come by often.

Jack said...

Ah, yes, I remember this place. Earlier your many buddies all debated about a businessman striding through it while on a cellphone.

Owen said...

The place still intrigues visitors from all over... funny, I photographed those chrome balls 25 years ago... in 1986 when I was living in a chambre de bonne as a student. Still have that photo somewhere...

I love the rainy mood, and the child passing by; I don't like Buren's work, and not evn the man himself..

Sharon Creech said...

So nice to find your blog again! Thanks for visiting mine. I love your Paris pics. You see the sorts of things I might see.
