Parisians are blessed with amazing parks and gardens... and the trademark green chairs. Love how both the "readers" in this shot are facing the sun.

Ah, to read in a Parisian garden with the warm sun on your face! C'est formidable, V de B!

Interesting light, I would like to see the color shot

Ah...to have the luxury to sit, take a breathe and read! Too often visits to Paris are world wind - running from site to site, to capture everything possible in the time you're there. Longing for some Parisian sunshine on my face. Votre amie...

Matin aux Tuileries... Dreamy. To think I have the exact same chairs (true, in a different color,) looking at me right now, on my Seattle deck ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Wonderful pastime indeed! But to be able to read there.. even more so. :)

I love the European mindset about taking life a bit more slowly!

I love to watch people reading in the gardens. I will have to learn a lesson from the Parisians and try to read some newspaper in the Jardin du Luxembourg during my next trip to Paris.
I had to move my blog because of problems with google, you can find it now here: http://vrenisviennadailyphoto.blogspot.com/
