Tanning In Paris I


I don't know why I've waited so long to share these.  Tanning in Paris seems to be the French national past time.  Today, Jardin du Luxembourg, but I have others!

Do I have to put this on my to-do-list for my next trip to Paris?

Ah. I know who must be happy: the old guys working inside Le Sénat right behind these girls!!! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Veronique, I"m LOL at the thought of the "old guys" in le Sénat sneaking peeks at the window!

Joe, see Veronique's comment. :)

Vreni, bien sûr!

For some reason, I didn't think French women tanned? I don't know why I thought that? HA

Harriet said...

Perfect photo for summer time! Like a great artist you have repeated the colors of the building in their skin tones!

Natalie said...

The photo is gorgeous and the backdrop is fantastic. Just hope that only fit and young girls dare to amuse 'old guys' in such a relaxed way. They add to the Jardin's charm in the sunshine.

Except in a hot shower, I can't even imagine being naked (or nearly so) in Paris.

NOw that looks wonderful and these ladies certainly can wear their bikini's.

HAHA, just before and after the rain!Sunny days are so rare in Paris, no wonder those girls enjoy them!

Cryingbear said...

Ah oui, c'était un peu aujourd"hui ou jamais! j'adore l'attitude relax des personnes sur la photo!

Virginia said...

Well I'm obviously not a French girl but I'd have a hard time whipping off my top and stretching out right there in front of le Sénat!! Apparently the French are still intent on tanning themselves anywhere they can. Wait till I run my other photos. Bon été !!!

Love the comments above Virginia, I too can imagine the men in Le Senate making those funny French 'appreciation' noises whilst ogling out of the window!!

Virginia said...

Grace,
I don't believe I've ever heard a Frenchman make the "appreciation" noise! Dommage!

The color palette makes this look like a vintage photograph.

Wonderful backdrop for tanning! I thought French women probably avoided the sun.
