My dear blog friend Francesca in Australia has a delightful travel photoblog, Postcard Pictures. Recently she entered Travel Supermarkets Capture the Color photography contest. Each entry posts five photographs featuring the colors red, blue, yellow, green and white. In addition you then invite five other bloggers to participate. She kindly included me so today my offerings.
January 2011, we arrived in Paris on a chilly, rainy morning. I flung open the windows of our apartment on rue Saint Roch to have a look and spotted this lady with her rouge umbrells coming my way. I will admit that I had to stand in the window sill to get this shot. It was worth it. If this photo looks familiar, it's because it is of course the cover of my book, Paris Rouge Through My Lens!
Twilight shoot at the Louvre is magical. The reflection of the sky and the pools took my breath. An evening in Paris I won't forget.
The rose gardens still blooming in late November, as seen through this interesting window at the Musée Carnavalet.
Café Nemours at Place Colette is one of my favorite places to sit outside and people watch. In January, it proved to be a cozy spot for a hot cup of tea. My favorite table has this wonderful view of le Louvre just down the street.
La neige. Oh it snowed the first night we were in Paris in 2011! That morning, we awoke to the city blanketed in white. As we walked through the gardens of the Palais Royal on our way to catch the Metro, I got this shot. It remains one of my fondest Paris memories and favorite photographs.
Now I must invite 5 bloggers who may choose to join the contest:
