Paris Ramblings

Revisiting Paris as I sorted and edited  my thousands of photos during this past week. A recurring theme occurred , me and this bronze jacket .The reason for this , it was waterproof , it rained and snowed in Paris and it was the warmest jacket I had with me.I also was behind the camera lens rarely in front of it.
Here we are , me and the jacket , in the Tuileries Gardens enjoying a break in the rarely glimpsed sun.

My touristy shots of The Louvre above and Notre Dame Cathedral below. I had visited both of these iconic
places on a previous visit so decided to forego the long queues and visit both small and large museums we
had not seen before.

My eye was drawn to what I call the finishing touches, the lamp posts , finials , door handles , doors,
chandeliers , I found them fascinating. The architectural equivalent of accesories.

Another day, same coat , Moyuru dress , red scarf , wool hat and Karen Walker sunnies. Overlooking the
garden at Musee Carnavelet in the Marais , an interesting museum showing details of early Parisian life.

I have a plan to return to my normal Monday fashion posts and travel posts for anyone interested on a Wednesday.

    'The architectural equivalent of accessories', I love that! I always photograph architectural details, too. Now I know why.

      We both like the finer details both in our outfits and photography.

    What a pity the weather wasn't good! In any case Paris is a wonderful city with many interesting museums… luckily you had the beautiful jacket with you!!
