Tanning in Paris IV- le Louvre


Reminds me of my college days when we climbed to the roof of the dorm to sunbathe!

Gorgeous! I adore the lighting of this photo..was it dusk? I hope to see the same beauty when I'm in Paris! It cannot come sooner

Incredible sculpture on the gate. I wish I could be there to capture these images myself

A refreshing perspective: Sunbathers immortalized!

What a beautiful view. I didn't do anything like that in my college days, V. My loss, clearly.

Never thought of them as sun-blathers .... great perspective! Love the light in this shot!

now be honest Virginia, no comparison with the roof of the eagle dorm ...

Starman said...

In the nude?

Kris said...

Absolutely stunning V! I love this photo. :) Were you able to get a bronze tan on your dorm roof! :)

Alexa said...

I was going to ask the same thing as Starman! Meanwhile, yet more proof that it pays to look up. :~}

Jack said...

Umm, some of these ladies are topless, Virginia. Are there photographs of your college sunbathing days?

Stunning light - beautiful photo and how wonderful that it evokes such happy memories. Have a lovely weekend F xx

Harriet said...

Lovely pink sky.

Looks like you are conveniently side-stepping the topic that Starman and Jack are bringing up........

Virginia said...

Well I've been challenged so I"ll answer. In my college days there might have been a few two piece bathing suits but certainly not what these lovelies on the top of le Louvre are showing. :) It's Paris after all.

You see that a lot here, working in a college campus town! Looks prettier on the Louvre!

These sunbathers should normally be sure to stay marble white, however... the pollution! :-)
