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.

Bateaux de Paris - Marie-Jeanne

Today begins another little mini-series. This last trip I focused my lens on the variety of boats tied up along the Seine. I hope you will enjoy this collection!

Musée With A View

From my visit in January, 2010, the view from the Musée d'Art Moderne. It has a spectacular view of la Tour Eiffel.

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.

Deux Chaises

The only thing missing is the bottle of champagne.

Paris Rouge - These Two

Looked like best friends parked outside of the chapel at the École des Beaux Arts

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!

Paris Rouge - Boats Along the Seine

This photo was taken as I leaned over the wall to photograph boats tied up along the Seine on a sunny day last November. This past week of flooding is very concerning.

Sunday Paris Church Series - Notre Dame de Paris

While photographing Notre Dame organist Vincent Dubois last November, he was kind enough to take Mary and me to this "gallery" to photograph. This is an area that the public is not allowed and was empty except for some pews along the side. This allowed for some wonderful photographs with an unusual point of view.

Tiny Beggars

Square Boucicaut is adjacent to Bon Marché and our Metro stop, Sèvre Babylone, so I often poked my head in to see what was  happening. It's a quiet little park where you often see people enjoying their lunch or children playing on the playground, and in fine weather the carrousel. This afternoon a few ducks showed up for a handout. To my knowledge there is no pond, so I"m wondering where they came from. Seasoned beggars that they were, they knew who to look in the eye!

Paris Bleu

To be honest, the only time I'm really Paris bleu, is when I'm leaving!

Deux cignes

What a wonderful find as you stroll the quai.

Beaucoup de boutons

Ultramod mercerie is one of my favorite shops in Paris. It's old school, like everything in Paris. The buttons are in old cardboard boxes, ribbons on rolls, trim and thread on old wooden rolls. I love this place more than I can say. I have photographed this shop many times. I will always go back.

After School in Paris

After school fun outside a high school in the Marais,  just steps from the Saint-Louis-Saint-Paul church.

Only in Paris

Of course the Louvre would have fancy schmancy drain covers!
