Paris in Bloom

In autumn, the urns at Jardin du Luxembourg are spilling over with chrysanthemums. The colors change from year to year, but always stunning.

Bientôt !

 This time next month, I hope Mary and I will be stepping into this lovely courtyard at Place des Vosges again to check on the red vines!

Grosses boules

Believe it or not, I've run into the same bubble maker at the Hôtel de Ville two separate trips!. There's always a gaggle of kiddos trying to catch the enormous bubbles while I"m trying mightily to shoot them before they pop!

My Happy Place

From my very first visit to Paris in March, 2007, I have found a way to drag up a green chair, put my feet up and thank God I'm in Paris again. A plastic glass of champagne is the icing on the cake.

Les colonnes

Palais Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris. While not always open, it's worth researching upcoming exhibits before your next visit.

I recommend making the short metro/bus connection to Rueil-Malmaison. It's a nice walk through the town which takes you through a beautiful park adjacent to Château de Malmaison.

Sunday Church Series - Paris Rouge

This door, on the north side of Notre Dame de Paris is often overlooked, but who could walk past this beautiful porte rouge and not stop for a photograph?

Paris Rouge - Le moto

On myr way into the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Church, I spotted this sharp red scooter. Interestingly enough, I've seen it parked in front of the church almost every trip since. I'd love to think it belongs to the priest!

Faire du pain

What a treat to watch bread being made at La Grande Epicerie. For many years our apartment was  just a few blocks from here, so we took full advantage of the wonderful selection of prepared foods, breads, pastries, delicacies, chocolats and so much more.

Didier Ludot, J'adore!

Didier Ludot's window at the Palais Royal, is always a show stopper for me. Their collection of vintage couture is magnifique!

The iron grates that cover most Paris shops after closing make it really hard to window shop!

Le Grand Palais

It took me 15 trips to Paris before I finally was able to go inside the Grand Palais. Built in the Beaux Arts style, the iron and glass structure is jaw dropping.  This is where Paris Photo is held every November. This amazing photography exhibit is sensory overload and I spent the whole time taking photos of the building's details and the photography. A day I will certainly never forget.

Métro Art

Some Paris Métro stations are more memorable than others. Certainly this mosaic wall in the Saint-Paul-Notre Dame is an eye catcher.

Homage to Meeps

I love this café with Meeps' Parisian cousin perched on the awning!

Au Vieux Paris d'Arcole

Au Vieux Paris d'areole, located within a block of Notre Dame, it's always charming.

Morning Walk

Morning walk in Butte-aux- Cailles. If you've never explored this charming neighborhood in the 13th, you need to add it to your list.

Portes du Louvre

The Cour Carrée, one of the main courtyards at the Louvre, is often overlooked, as most visitors flock to the Pyramid. It's usually quieter and late one afternoon after walking all day, I wandered in, sat on a bench and just soaked in all the exquisite details at my leisure. I stayed until the sun set.

Une autre vue

Each time I return to Paris, I try to find another way to shoot the places I love in another way.

Enjoying the View

In 2016, the exterior of Gehry's Fondation Louis Vuitton, was covered in colorful checkerboard patterns, created by Daniel Buren, on each level you an walk outside and enjoy the view. Located in the Bois de Boulogne, I think it's worth the trip.
