In addition to the large skating rink that is set up in from of the Hôtel de Ville de Paris, this beautiful double decker carrousel adds to the magic.

Thanks for this photo, Virginia. When I was in Paris in October, our apartment on the (French) second floor overlooked the front of the Hotel de Ville and beyond to Notre Dame--it was like having windows on the world. I can only think what fun it would be to have that view now .... the ice rink and the carrousel at Christmas.

Can't tell it's a "double decker"!
Has anyone else noticed that Blogger is now putting ads in the damned comments section?!?!?!?!

Beautiful shot, V. You have expertly given the illusion of a colorful carousel with a b/w background. Lovely!

I agree with Genie. I noticed that right away, the juxtaposition of the Carousel in all its gaiety and the somber tones of the hotel make this photo really extra special...Merry Christmas, Virginia, and a very Happy New Year! Joyeux Noel!

Alexa said...

Yes, I was going to say the same as Genie! Beautifully done, V -- Bon dimanche.

Great perspective. I also love the black and white effect of the City Hall in contrast to the bright colours of the carousel.

I've enjoyed a good deal of time at Hotel de Ville's plaza. How I wish the Carousel had been in place when I was there!

Apartments Paris Glamour apartments are on of the best apartments in Paris. They are providing all the facility to

their visitors like pick and drop from airport to apartments and apartments to site view. On their website simply enter your date of arrival, date of departure, number

of members, and confirm you’re booking by online payment. These apartments are very cost effective. You can get rent for short time period as well as long. You don’t

have to pay on per day. If you check out little late than the scheduled time you will never be charged extra for that.
