Ceci et que = This and that
I love this picture of Ken taken on the Île Sainte-Louis.
Thanks to my friends and blog followers for indulging this multi-part series. This is the last of the Away to Visit Paris series. I hope you enjoy this photo-centric, mash-up memory album.
|The first thing we did when we arrived in Paris on a Sunday |
afternoon was to walk along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées
where many stores were open.
|I like how this subtle message is displayed in a store window |
on the Champs-Élysées.
|Sepia cityscape near pont de Bir-Hakeim|
|Nos chers amis Dave and Linda admire a |
peak-a-boo view of the Tour Eiffel.
|Musée Jacquemart-André, located on Blvd. |
Haussmann, houses the collection of Paris power
couple: banker/politican/soldier Édouard François
André and society painter Nélie Jacquemart.
|Ken seems happy with the view of the Seine, or maybe |
Dave just told him un bonne blague.
|Chillen on the Seine|
|Les maisons flottantes on the river|
|This photo shows the large crowd of tourists at Cathédrale|
Notre-Dame de Paris. But, check out the next picture ...
|... Just around the corner at Notre Dame, no |
crowds and even benches to sit on.
|An unusual statue in the Square du Palais-Galliera|
|Monument de la France Renaissante on the |
pont de Bir-Hakeim
|La Grisette stands on Rue du Faubourg du Temple |
where the Canal St. Martin heads underground.
No one is sure who she is.
|I wish I had noted what and where this statue is.|
|Yep, I wish I could identify this one too. I'll give |
due credit if any of you fine readers can help.
And then some other stuff happened
|'Does standing on this ledge make me look tall?'|
|This concert was before our visit, but I'm impressed |
with how young James Taylor looks on this poster.
|Stairs or escalator? Will I walk or ride?|
|Those who know me well understand why this picture is included.|
Et si elle se termine, pour l'instant ...
And so it ends, for now. Now on to our next adventure!
