Où sommes-nous?

I'm sure you all know.  It's one of my favorite places in Paris.

Le parapluie et l'église

I was aimlessly wandering  the Marché Saint- Eustache-les Halles when I spotted this parapluie set up by one of the vendors. Merci Monsieur!

Sunday Church Series - Saint-Étienne-du-Mont

I have visited many churches in Paris over and over and never fail to find very special details that I'd overlooked before.  I loved the light hitting this lovely statue.

Paris Rouge - Les Chaises

These bright rouge chairs seemed to be strutting their stuff!

Trouvé I

On my travels to Paris I've noticed found objects that have been placed so that perhaps the owner will retrace their steps and find they lost belonging.  I found this dear lapin hanging on the street light, awaiting to be reunited with its wailing owner.

Paris Rouge - Flock Till You Drop!

Today I share a photograph from Galerie Vivienne that I love so much 
I post every Christmas. This tree is so over the top Paris......I can't resist.

Paris Rouge - Prada Takes Printemps

This year's windows at Printemps were bought and paid for by Prada.

La Grande Roue de la Concorde

La Grande Roue stands at the edge of Tuileries facing Place de la Concorde from November till early January.  A symbol that Noël has arrived!

Galeries Lafayette - Les Chats Noirs

Look very closely at the adorable animals parading around the tree at Galeries Lafayette. Yes, les chats noirs were in abundance and also in one of their delightful windows as well. I would love to think they knew I was coming. Meeps was very pleased.

A Little Too Cool ?

He spotted me and then I waited. I think he was of the age that  he thought he was a bit too cool to enjoy the windows, but maybe not.

Le café rose et rouge

What could be more fabulous??? Near rue Montorgeuil.

Le dôme

Christmas at Galeries Lafayette is always spectacular, some years more than others.  This year I was able to photograph it from every angle. I'll admit that I still think 2008 was my absolute favorite, but I"ll share more photos in the days to come to show you why this year's décor stole my heart.

Un reflet - Le Louvre

We all know that the rain in Paris is a given , but after......the reflections make it all worth it, n'est-ce pas?  The pigeon helps.

Deux Amis

While strolling through Village St. Paul, I came upon these two students from the nearby Lycée Charlamagne enjoying their lunch break.  I asked the girl if I could take her photograph,  and she agreed but asked if her friend could be included. Bien sûr!!

Last Tango in Paris?

Oh I think not. Tango dancing in Paris pops up all over the city. This Sunday as I made my pilgrimage to rue Mouffetard to see my old friends who dance there each week, I spotted one of my favorite subjects... Danielle.

Les étoiles - MERCI!

This day, Merci was having what appeared to be one fabulous sale, so photographing inside was pretty much out of the question, but I  liked the stars leading the way to......les soldes!

Le Vélo

Spotted next to the Lycée Charlemagne in the Marais, this vélo waits for the bell to ring.

Les Ponts

For me, getting this low,  for this perspective was enough of a challenge. I'll let you experts tell me where I took this one and the pont in the background!

Thanks to reader Sukicart now we know that I was on the Pont Notre Dame, looking across at Pont d'Arcole!

Half price theatre books.  A great deal at Shakespeare & Company.

Bear With Me...

I will move on from the fall leaves in Paris very soon. Je vous promets.

Automne à Paris - Les chaises

I feel like automne is running out, and I have so many photos to share. Today, probably one of my favorites from the almost 5,000 images I took in Paris this trip. I shot these leaves and chairs over and over and over . I think this is my best but that could change!

At The Risk.......

 of boring you silly with fall leaves in Paris...... I post yet another. I hope you will bear with me. I've not seen any color or leaves in Paris for about three years as I always visit in January. This trip was an absolute delight, filled with geraniums, Virginia Creeper and the fall leaves. I couldn't resist.

Où sont les enfants?

This cold, gray afternoon this sweet little play yard beside Notre Dame was very quiet.

Le Pain de Paris

While we're all stuffing ourselves with turkey, dressing etc. here in the U.S., Parisians are queuing up to buy warm baguettes, which for me is a wonderful substitute.  I've been gone for less than a week, and just looking at this photograph makes my mouth water.

This Thanksgiving, I'm grateful for all of you that stop by this blog and read/comment. It brings me great pleasure to share my photographs of Paris with you.  I hope you will come back often for new photos from this last trip!

Automne à Paris - La grille

 Our last day in Paris we spent wandering the Marais. More fabulous vines.

Automne à Paris - Fontaine Medicis

As many of you know, I've traveled to Paris in January for the last four years. It's easier for me to travel at that time but I have longed to see Paris in another season. This November trip, I found her in all her autumn splendor.  I'll be sharing some favorites for the next week or so. Today, a late afternoon stroll through the Jardin du Luxembourg, and the leaves falling around the Medici Fountain, made it even more beautiful.

Photo Month in Paris - Yousuf Karsh

If you love Paris and you love photography, then November is the month you need to go!  For the entire month, fabulous exhibits, many free, are offered all over Paris from the Grand Palais to the smallest galleries.  We didn't opt for the extravaganza Paris Photo, at the Grand Palais, but in one day saw three terrific exhibits, at no cost.  Today we visit the Mona Bismarck American Center, just across the Seine from la Tour Eiffel.  The Yousuf Karsh exhibit was excellent.  You might not have know his name but you certainly would know his work.

Paris Rouge - Aéroport Charles de Gaulle

I'm back from a wonderful 10 days in Paris and a bit weary tonight.  I hope to have some fresh photos downloaded by tomorrow, but for today, a parting shot taken yesterday with my iPhone at Aéroport Charles de Gaulle, just before we left.
