All Aflutter


I thought we'd have little challenge today, although I'm sure my sharp readers won't miss a beat. We'll give it a go anyway.   Do you know WHERE I was when I shot  this??

You've got me stumped on this one Virginia - and I thought I knew Paris pretty well - I'm thinking! thinking!

Can´t be La Madeleine, right? Where´s the Obelisk?

The Pantheon on Rue Soufflot? I'm sure of it! Am I right?

Gorgeous shot, I love seeing the Eiffel Tower peaking out.

I don't know where you were but it's a beautiful shoot!

Veronique got it right! It is from the front of the Pantheon looking west across Jardin du Luxembourg to la Tour. I love how you have framed the scene with the flags and column.

What Genie said Virginia, she knows Paris and I think I kind of remember that view from there. I so love the way you can see the Eiffel Tower from so many, many different spots around Paris. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

I recognized it right away but I'm in the wrong time zone. Besides, I didn't see any mention of a prize for the correct answer.

I stayed just down the road, next to La Sorbonne on one trip.

I 'd say Madeleine, but i'm not sure.

You have given us another great photo. Love everything about it, including the title.

Virginia said...

Wayne, the prize would be the personal satisfaction ma chèr! :)

Keep the guesses coming in. I'll announce the winner on tomorrow's blog. I'm sure many of you will set your alarms so you can wake up at 12:01 am CDT! :)
