Paris Rouge - L'autobus


Sometimes you just can't have enough Paris Rouge in one week!  Today a shot Peter has perfected on his blog header.  We were having a look at The Welcoming Hands at Tuilieries,  and he kindly pointed out this vantage point, capturing these three in one shot.  The red bus was the cherry on the sundae, so to speak.

Having watched the ending of le Tour de France ( thanks Genie for the heads up) as the bikers pedaled up and down the Champs Élysées yesterday, it made me homesick for this special view.

As an added bonus I include a special tune for you today!

Oui, you can thank our friend Peter for this one -- and the bus driver too. Perfect timing! Veronique (French girl in Seattle)

As much as I would have loved to be "in my spot" on Champs Élysées yesterday, we really did get a better view on TV. I am sorry that le Tour is over but I loved seeing the spirit of the ride along with the exquisite countryside and villes of France... just amazingly beautiful!

I do love this alignment and Paris rouge!

I was very pleasantly surprised at the number of really good shots during the last day of Le Tour.

What a great photo, beautiful

Janey and Co. said...

I agree with Kristy...that's just the right pop of color.

Alexa said...

I was thinking the same as a few folks here—that spot of red adds a certain je ne sais quoi, V!

Jeanie said...

You have so many wonderful images, I will be commenting a lot today! You're right about the red bus!

AL said...

Love the pic with the touch of rouge...but I also love that splash of gold on the obelisk. Beautiful V.

My sporting interests were across the Channel yesterday. I was watching Adam Scott's 4-shot lead late in the British Open when the time to Skype with Susie arrived. When I returned to the TV, Ernie Els was walking to the podium to get the claret jug. How did that happen?!?!?
