Marche avec moi


These two ladies, perhaps mother and daughter,  walked slowly through the Palais Royal gardens this chilly January afternoon.  They found two chairs around the fountain to rest, right next to ours.   I have another photo to share.

This is my selection for The World in Black and White today right here.

I was there just last night.....such a perfect place to go after a warm day....the light was beautiful on the buildings, it is just minutes from our apartment.
Your photos are always a delight!!

It's strange to see all those winter pictures now..Summer is almost there,light clothes, heat, blue skies.. Winter seems so faraway suddenly!

I have always gravitated toward taking and enjoying photos of people taken from the rear view. It gives the subjects so much character, regardless of age.

perfect for monochrome

The time is merciless. What if the elderly lady who is still trying hard to keep up with style and posture, was one of those elegant wasp-waist beauties of 50-es whom we admire on vintage Vogue/Harper's covers? She might be, non? Wonderful image Virginia. Love your photo stories.

Virginia said...

Natalie, a wonderful story to imagine! I note that even the very elderly women in Paris still will don hose and shoes with a heel when out for a walk. You have to admire that.

Anni, Merci but ma française is due to the help of Veronique! I try my best and check Monsieur Google and then run it by her. I/we are usually wrong somehow and she kindly helps out.

Paris is Paris in any season and I love the special qualities of each! Nice view of these two women and their relationship is left to our imaginations

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I agree with Genie, Paris is magical at any time of the year. How nice of these two ladies to wear contrasting coats of black and white, perfect for your image Virginia.

Thank the goddess the world is NOT black and white.

It's a lovely capture, V! I hope my daughters will help me stroll around the gardens of the Palais Royal when I'm in my dotage.

Bonsoir Virginia.

Superbe photo! Très attendrissant!

Jack said...

You nailed this one, Virginia. And, it is an image that demands to be shown in black and white.
