The blue hour at its finest as seen from the portico of this beautiful church.
Sainte- Trinité, built between 1861-1867 and designed by architect Théodore Ballu as part of the beautification and reorganization of Paris under Baron Haussmann. This might be one of my new favorite churches in Paris.

Patrick Allain Fleuriste has been in this charming shop for 25 years right on the rue de la St. Louis. Paris Breakfast and Shell Sherree have paid homage with their delightful artwork as well. Proof that even in the middle of janvier, Paris blooms!

Those of you that know me well, know that I always wear two silver bracelets, sometimes more. When I have visited Alexis in his couture shop in the Marais, I can't take my eyes off this armload he wears. He's an interesting man. Although he has never been rude, and always allowed me to poke around and shoot his fabulous evening gowns, he's always a bit blasé, as if he has other things to do. Peut-être très français?

Some of us traipse up to the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette armed with large or small cameras to capture sunset in Paris with this spectacular view. Others pull out their iPad.

I will confess that I know nothing of this lovely mosaic on the premier étage of a building, near Shakespeare and Company. I welcome further information from my keen readers!
UPDATE: Thanks to a nice reader, the mystery of the lady is solved. This is Polly Maggoo, a rather famous bar in the 5eme!

People often ask why I return to Paris over and over. Well today's photo is one really good reason...you just never know what you'll happen upon while walking down the street! I almost walked right past this mom and her boy, but luckily I was quick. I will guess that it was a photo shoot, but who knows! I love Paris.

Eric Tenin, when we met in person for the first time in July, 2009. Now we are
old friends and I always enjoy seeing him when I'm in Paris. Here he is with his ever present moto!

Tombées du Camion translates to "fallen from the truck". I first read about this quaint and quirky little shop tucked away in Montmartre in *Paris Made By Hand. I thought it looked intersting, and I was right. It's full to the brim with odd little toys, vintage everything, including some medical equipment and printing press letters.
Now they have two locations. I assume the newer one is just as interesting. If you can find this place, you'll want your camera handy.
17 rue Joseph de Maistre

47 Passage des Panoramas
01 42 33 22 19
* I've enjoyed Paris Made By Hand but have found several of the shops closed or no longer at the location.
I would call or check the web before hand.

Square Georges Cain, named after the painter and writer who was also served as a curator of the Musée Carnavalet. I think this is one of Paris' best kept secrets. A quiet corner in the Marais

One benefit of traveling to Paris in January ( and July) is that the whole city is having marvelous sales (soldes). The rouge banners at BHV caught my eye while waiting in line at the Sempé exhibit across the street at the Hôtel de Ville.

Well what are the chances that I would happen upon another last January, again in the Marais!!! This time, a new mattress was being pushed down rue Saint Antoine! And to think that some people ask me why I return to Paris, over and over.

|Michel and Gisèle|
I've photographed this colorful couple dancing on rue Mouffetard since 2009. He is always dressed in such unusual attire that I sometimes forget to notice what she's wearing although it seems to be white most often. I've had the opportunity to speak with some of the others but never these two. I don't think they're married but seem to meet up each Sunday and usually dance together. Maybe if I get another chance, I'll find out more!

This jeune fille was skipping off to the fellowship hall after services where church members gather for coffee and sweets.

You met these two ladies as they walked slowly through the gardens at the Palais Royal here. I promised another look. Peter and I pulled up our chairs next to them to enjoy the fountain, and this little one entertained us all. I think she brightened their day as well as ours.

I have always been fascinated with the structural details of the Eiffel Tower. This close up is reminiscent of an overgrown erector set! Every time I visit "her" I find something new to photograph. Who knows what I'll find next time.

I have held on to this photo since last January. I took it on the fly at the Palais Royal....hence the movement blur. I apologize up front but I still love it eight months later so I'm going to share and beg forgiveness.
