Pas de cadenas d'amour!

The Pont des Arts has always been one of my favorite Paris bridges. This pedestrian bridge built in 1804 has stood the test of time until recent years.  I always enjoyed the street artists and musicians found there. In later years, the bridge became a disaster, loaded to the breaking point with "love" locks and lock salesmen preying on tourists. Eventually the City of Paris had to close the bridge, remove the 45 tons of locks and eventually were able to replace them with glass panels which are hopefully, lock proof. Now we can enjoy the beautiful view again!

Bateaux de Paris - The Julia

 While participating in a street photography class with Meredith Mullins in 2014, I spotted Monsieur as he unloaded groceries to his houseboat, The Julia. I walked up and introduced myself and boldly asked if I could see his boat. He graciously told me after he was done, I was welcome. Unfortunately, I had to move on and never got that opportunity. It was lovely meeting him.  I took the next photo from the bridge.

Perhaps one day I'll get back there and maybe have the chance to sit and have a chat!

Bateaux de Paris - Bleu, rouge et blanc

Today, the second in my Bateaux de Paris series. It was a lovely blue sky morning in Paris. Unfortunately, the last month and a half has not been so sunny in Paris.

Chess in the Gardens

I have been photographing the chess players in Luxembourg Gardens for years. For the most part, it's the same men, deep in thought, no nonsense. Not this day!

Moto Reflet

I usually look for reflections in the rear view mirror, but this time, the windshield paid off.

I'm happy to join James' Weekend Reflections right HERE !

Paris Rouge - les chaussures

Peering through the windows along rue Saint Honoré never disappoints.

Les mouettes

I"m always a bit surprised to see seagulls in Paris, especially in the snow!

Through the Door

Janvier 2010, we awoke to a light snowfall in Paris. It was nothing like the lovely snow they have had this week but I tried to get the most of it. Here from Place des Vosges, looking towards Hôtel Sully.

Neige encore à Paris!

This was taken years ago at the American Cathedral in Paris. Today as Paris is still dealing with flooding along the Seine, they are getting another snowfall. I am so jealous!

Due to inclement weather, the outside seating at the Jardin du Palais Royal was closed. Quelle dommage.

This photograph and many others will be featured in my upcoming photography exhibit at Independent Presbyterian Church during the month of February. For details about next week's Religious Arts Festival, click HERE

City Daily Photo Theme Day - Tired

Here I am, parked in a green Paris chair, feet propped up on the edge of the fountain, at my favorite place, le Jardin du Palais Royal. Sigh........ This is where I come to relax in this quiet place, and just enjoy every minute I'm in Paris. It's also my getaway for a rest from all the walking!

My City Daily Photoblog friends around the world are posting their TIRED photos today. Have a look HERE!
