The only thing missing is a Parisian with a beret!

This is parfait as it is - no need for a Parisian with a beret! Warm regards

C'est une espèce en voie de disparition. Le dernier que j'ai vu, c'était en 2008

A great deal of romantic old Paris has disappeared but I think Place du Tertre will be there forever. It has two characters, one for winter and one for summer. In summer the cafés around the edge of the square set up tables in the square displacing most of the artists to the outer edges. In winter the square is full of artists. Some are quite good and others not so good but it is fun to watch them work. I try to stay away on the weekend because it is so crowded. Lovely choice for today's blog Virginia!

My first view was coming up the back stairs. It was such a breathtaking view. I was lucky
enough to have a Paris Gentleman tell me to see it from the
back steps.

Jeanie said...

You're right! You must have been early before the crowds hit!

Alexa said...

a beret—and a baguette. :~} I love the way you composed this shot, V!

Martha said...

Virginia...I absolutely love your camera angle...very unique way to photograph this famous site. Did you ever look at the shot I posted on my blog taken from behind the clock in the Musee d'Orsey last spring?

Like alll the others, I like the angle of this photo.

Paulita said...

You're right, this is the quintessential Paris photo. Your new background photo at the top of of your blog is gorgeous. Love it.

Jack said...

Keep looking, Virginia. He is bound to turn the corner any moment now, with a baguette under his arm, a bottle of wine and two glasses.

Sigh!

I love those shabby shutters ..... SO French ... hope they never paint them.

Vreni said...

Great angle! I love the white shutters.
