Paris Rouge - Seul

This sweet playground at the Jardin du Luxembourg, seemed a little sad this fall morning without the petits enfants bringing it to life.

Paris Rouge - La marionnette

This delightful little shop, just a few doors down from Le Reminet ( Rue des Grands Dégres). It was lovely afternoon meeting the shop owner and have her show us around her store. The last time I was in Paris, i noted that it appears to now be closed.

Paris Rouge - Saint Augustin

Located in the 8th arrondissement, Église Saint-Augustin is a beautiful but often overlooked church. You know what caught my eye!

Paris Rouge - SOLDES!

If you are lucky enough to be in Paris in January or July, you can take advantage of the huge city wide soldes (SALES!). Here, BHV ( Bazarre Hôtel de Ville), one of Paris' largest department stores unfurls their bright red banners.

Some of you have inquired about a Paris Rouge book. Check the sidebar for my first Paris Rouge offering. Who knows, maybe the sequel is in the making!

Paris Rouge - L'homme à la Comédie`Française

Taken at the Palais Royal in 2012 when la Comeedie-Française had relocated during the renovation.
I think I"ll do a little Paris Rouge mini series for the next few days. It's been fun finding new photos!

Paris Rouge - Les visages

I"m always fascinated with how Parisians find a way to install art in the most unexpected places. These bright ROUGE steel girders at a constructions site in Montmartre became an outdoor art exhibit. J'adore!

Bons souvenirs

Remembering a glass of wine at Ma Bourgogne, at Place des Vosges on a June afternoon. The birds watched from the lamp post in hopes of a morsel of my bread.

Beaucoup d'argent !

 I have stepped into Alexa's boutique at Place des Vosges many times over the years. We've never really made friends, but he's always allowed me to wander around and photograph his elegant, over the top ballgowns that he designs and makes right there. He usually turns away and reads his phone and basically ignores me.  I"m OK with that. Now those bracelets... j'aie envie!!!

Les bougies de la ruche

The Butte aux Cailles neighborhood of Paris in the 13th arrondissement, is a quiet charming area to stroll up and down the hilly streets. We stopped in Les Arbeilles, filled with all things honey. Yet another time when the photographs took over and I walked out without a thing. What sweet little cadeaux they would have been. Next trip, I'm heading right back there!

Sunday Church Series - Boys Will Be Boys

After services at The American Cathedral in Paris, visitors are welcomed in the back of the sanctuary for coffee and cookies. I always enjoy getting to speak with members of the congregation and the ministers. Meanwhile, these two were a bit tired of being bons garçons and had a little fun.

Déjeuner avec amis

I"d love a long leisurely lunch with friends in Paris right now!

Paris Reflet

If you go to Paris for the weather, I'd recommend another locale. Then again, you have to embrace the reflections!

Today, I"m happy to rejoin James' Weekend Reflections, right HERE! Click and see the gallery of all the lovely reflections that my photoblog friends share every weekend!

Dans le Métro

I like to capture what I call "Day in the Life of Paris" photos from time to time. Reminds me of the daily memories I don't want to forget.

Up on the Roof

This is a view that many of you might have seen. It's the outside of the fabulous glass and steel dome of Galeries Lafayette as seen from the rooftop. In the background, yet another Living Wall/Vertical Garden. These walls are springing up all over Paris!

Sunday Church Series - Baisser les yeux

I often preach that you should always look UP in Paris. When visiting The American Cathedral in Paris, you need to do that in order to view the beautiful flags of the states. After that, have a look down at the beautifully patterned marble floor.
