“…the whole of Paris is a vast university of Art, Literature and Music…it is worth anyone’s while to dally here for years. Paris is a seminar, a post-graduate course in Everything.”
James Thurber American Author
“I had forgotten how gently time passes in Paris. As lively as the city is, there’s a stillness to it, a peace that lures you in. In Paris, with a glass of wine in your hand, you can just be.”
Kristin Hannah, The Nightingale
“I’m not a complicated girl; she laughed,
I just want to run away with you, rob a bank, fall in love and eat ice creams in Paris.”
Photos from one of my trips to Paris in the summer of 2011, about 18 months before I began my photographic journey in earnest.
Lovely photos, maybe someday in the future I’ll be crossing the Atlantic too visit…
Thank you. Yes it’s a long way for you, just a few hours for me on Eurostar.
Gorgeous photos, Elisabeth…I have taken a trip to Paris, just for 3 days, it wasn’t really long enough. I do love it though!
Thank you, Ally. I love Paris too, and wanted to live there at one time, but much too expensive for me.
Yes, for us it is very expensive, we had quite a tight budget, but we enjoyed the vibe in the streets and on the underground.
It was a lifetime dream of mine to go to the top of the Eiffel tower and I did that 8 years ago. 🙂
You’re very brave going to the top of the tower. I only made the second level. I have no head for heights, so just managed to take a few very quick photos and then straight back down in the shaky lift..
Do visit to my blog and follow it if you like…
Thank you very much. Your blog is lovely.
Oh so lovely. Remarkable pictures. Thank you. (A post doc in everything? Hah! Quite possibly so)
Thank you for your nice message. My sincere apologies for the delay in replying. I have been unwell and in hospital but hope to get back to normal now. Hope all is well with you.
No worry about the delay. Enough pressure in the outside world to bring it inside the Blogosphere (where time is suspended)
Sorry about the hospital. Always a bummer, though many times necessary. Hope you are all right and soon recovering. 🙏🏻🌹
Just found your message in spam!! It happens from time to time, so I’m glad I checked. Thank you very much. I’ll catch up with your posts soon. Hope all is well with you.
All well thank you. Don’t worry about spam. Happens to me all the time. Be seeing you. 🙏🏻
Great post and wonderful images!!!
Thank you, Luisa, for your kind message.
Most welcome! 🙏
Thank you, Kally.
A wonderful series. Love Michael Faudet’s quote! 🙂
Thank you. I love that quote too. I wanted to live in Paris but I really would need to rob a bank. It’s very expensive there.
Absolutely stunning images. Well, as always. Such pleasure to look at and to feel some spirit of places you’ve visited.
Thank you, Inese, for your lovely message. Bless you.
Deine wunderbaren Bilder über die ‘Seine Metropole’ sind excellent und wecken in mir Sehnsucht aus, denn mein einziger Besuch in Paris war 1966, liegt also schon eine Ewigkeit zurück.
Herzlichen Dank für die tollen Bilder liebe Isabella und viele Grüsse nach Wales. Ernst
Vielen Dank, Ernst, für Ihre schöne Nachricht. Paris ist einer meiner Lieblingsorte. Die Stadt des Lichts und der Liebe. Viele Grüße, lieber Ernst.
Thank you so much for your lovely message. Paris is one of my most favourite places. The City of Light and Love. Many blessings, dear Ernst.
Gorgeous photos, my dear Izzy from the city of light!
Bless you, Marina. 💜
Paris is beautiful! I’ll never get there, so I really enjoyed these, thank you!
Thank you, Donna. It is a beautiful city and I’ve been blessed to visit four times.
Simply breathtaking, Izzy. The sky is a brilliant blue.
Thank you, Rebecca. I remember those blue, blue skies. It was very hot too. Such a beautiful city with an amazing atmosphere. If I had loads of money I would love to live there.
How nice to see all these beautiful images. Reminds me of my past visits to France. Thank you for sharing, Izzy.
Thank you, Jo. Glad you enjoyed them.
Super Fotos. L.G. Wolfgang
