 Église de la Madeleine, was designed as a temple to Napolean's army, hence it's commanding soaring columns. It's a magnificent church now.

Paris Photo 2017

After YEARS I was finally ble to experience Paris Photo in 2017. Each trip in November, I gave it great thought and always decided it would probably mean waiting in long lines to enter, even if I had a ticket. This day, Peter, Mary and I were headed to the Petit Palais for an exhibit when I looked toward the Grand Palais and discovered there was not line that I could see! Peter spoke with a guard and voila! I walked up, paid my 30 euros and was inside. This was also my first time under the fabulous glass and steel dome of the Grand Palais, so I experienced an adrenaline rush just wanting to photograph every inch. That and the hundreds of photography exhibition booths was just as Meredith Mullins had warned, sensory overload. I wandered without an organized plan but managed to experience the architecture and the photography. More photographs to come this week!

We never pass a courtyard that we don't peek inside. You never know what you'll find. This was a grand find.

Les feuilles mortes

 We're visiting Paris a bit later this year in early December. I'll miss the glorious fall leaves but have so many images to remember.

In 2009, Davis was driving a moro at the Jardin d'Acclimatation. Now, he's gotten his driver's permit! Time flies.

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.

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!
