I have some new subscribers, so if you don’t mind, I’m going to put up the guest post I did for A Lady in France a while back. It’s the least I can do after subjecting you to winterscapes yesterday.
Paris is one of my favorite cities, and I think Lady Jennie is really lucky to be living there. I never get tired of this view of the Eiffel Tower taken from the Arc de Triomphe just before sunset.
I think Paris has some of the most beautiful doors in the world. Whether they’re of hand-carved wood set in lovely old stone…
Or simply painted in that inimitable French blue, they’re works of art, in my opinion.
I also love the windows of Paris with their wrought iron, flower boxes and lace curtains.
How I wish I could re-create this look in the U.S., but it’s just not the same.
Even the radishes are beautiful in Paris. The markets on rue Mouffetard are a must, especially if you like eating and photographing great food.
For me, one of the things that embodies Paris is the Citroën “Deux Chevaux.” I prefer them old and faded, but I wouldn’t turn down this bright red version either.
I enjoy it still, your photos are wonderful. Have you watched Chéri meanwhile?
Oh, am I glad you mentioned that. I just realized I haven’t returned the two movies we just watched. Somehow they got buried under a stack of papers. Chéri is at the top of the queue, so I should be seeing it this week. Thanks!
Sooooo beautiful. I can’t wait until we get a chance to get to Paris. I’m hoping that we will finally do that this year.
I think you will love it. 🙂
I am dying for these shots, I hope to have some similar photos one day, until then I will live vicariously through you 🙂
