Le réflexion


You must first understand the pure joy that Mary and I experienced when we looked up from lunch this Sunday and discovered the rain that was forecasted to last ALL DAY,  had lifted and the SUN was actually shining for the first time since we had arrived in Paris!!!! We paid the bill and headed out to photograph everything possible under the blue skies. After the Palais Royal, of course the Louvre. Here puddles provided my inspiration for James' Weekend Reflections!

Just lovely V. That moment, after rain, when the sun comes out is perfection. We've had solid rain for three days now - I'm hoping it might happen...soon!

Oh you're in the beautiful Cour Carree du Louvre. So many people only walk through this beautiful entrance to the Louvre with stopping to enjoy the quiet and beauty of this charming courtyard.

WOW! That is absolutely gorgeous. Looks like a water color (no pun intended) or oil painting.

Une façade qui voulait vérifier si elle était toujours aussi belle !...

Une très jolie photo.

Je vous souhaite une journée de la femme joyeuse et pétillante, gros bisous.

Like James, I just love a good puddle reflection. And, of course, even upside down the Louvre is awesome! Glad the sun decided to appear for you. :~}

This has the look of an impressionist watercolor.
