Noël est arrivé !


It's official, Christmas in Paris has arrived on this blog.  I can't promise it will appear here every day but we'll sprinkle the photographs around.  Today, one of the beautiful trees that flanked the front of the Hôtel de Ville last year.

It is here...all around the world, in its own expression. How marvelous Anita

You are not missing anything, the Xmas decoration in front of the Hôtel de Ville, is this year much more modest! :-)

What a beautiful, magical photo of Paris by night with a Christmas twist! Magnifique, V de B!

Is this one of your magnificent photos that appeared in Belle Inspiration Magazine?

No wonder they chose your work!

The Hotel de Ville is gorgeous without any extra embellishment—these trees look like the icing on the cake. Beautiful, V!

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

Very pretty, and it's such a gorgeous building anyway. According to Peter (see comment above) this year is not quite as striking looking. Dommage... Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

In my book, this is an A+ photo! Your composition, the lighting on Hotel de Ville and the tree...c'est parfait!
