There And Back Again... Paris & Versailles

Ahhhh.... April in Paris...


Round and round we go...


Keeping time...


Mr. Black and I made friends! Please meet Louis


Viaggiatore made lots of new friends, too!


Where the light is pink in Paris...


Bon Apetit!


The Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles


Viaggiatore met this new friend at the Louvre


Angels abound...


Sunlight through stained glass at Notre Dame


A bridge over calm waters


Guarding the bridge... Viaggiatore loved meeting all the Parisian Lions!


Standing at attention on the Seine


The Sacred Heart


Flowing Seine


The only sphinx in the Louvre with an intact nose


Saint Michel defeating the devil


A close look at the Eiffel Tower


Ways to get from here to there


Con Te Partiro... just for us!


Aphrodite of Milos
She was made between 130-100 BC! She looks mahvelous!


The lions at Versailles were small but very friendly!

Suburbia!

Thanks! There was so much to capture. I have *hundreds* of shots, but these are some of the better ones; so tough to choose!
All is very well, and I hope that it is with you, too.


Hello Kay!

It was a brief walk, if you haven't been, you ought to try to go someday, it is a poets city, and hence, it would be all yours.
;o)


Rel!

I brought it home with me, again.
In a way... but I will be aching to go back, soon enough.
YOU know. ;o)

Beautiful pictures! They make me realize that it's been FAR too long since I've been in Paris. FAR too long.

I'm glad that Viaggiatore made so many friends. :)

nice pix!

love the notre dame shot.

and just noticed that wonderful rocky mountain sunset pic on your sidebar. yum! lenticular clouds?

Oh, Scarlett, these are wondrous photos! I love the Pont Neuf, and does Mr. Black really resemble John Cusack or is it just that picture?

I still LOVE Paris. And now I really must go through the lovely tour you've arranged again.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

The slide show, too, is fabulous! Your wonderful eye plus one of the most beautiful cities on earth made for some incredibly great photos.

Thank you again. I am not a Parisian, but I am terribly homesick for Paris now. (Let me in Coach, I can play.)

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Jules,

Let's go then! I am up for another trip!
You should go back. It's more wonderful than ever.


Hey Clowncar!

I do love the Rocky Mountains... now if only I could tug that Pacific Ocean up to the western edge of them, I'd be completely happy...


My dearest Hearts,

I am homesick for Paris, too. I loved ALL of it. Mr. Black resembles a few famous people, although that's the first time I've heard Cusack, so must just be that photo. There are three albums of these photos on my FB page, next time you visit, you'll get a much better perspective of the trip.
It would be a blast to travel with you!

XO
