At night, all the café chairs in Paris, stack themselves, one upon another and wait patiently until the sun comes up.

Parisians always seem to be in a hurry. Moi, I like to stroll.

Dimanche à Paris

Île de la Cité's Bird Market is always a good idea, open only on Sundays it's part of the Marché aux Fleurs. A lovely spot to walk through!

La Croix

Forgive me if I repeat myself,  but I really think Novembre might just be the best time to visit Paris. The vines, which we call Virginia Creeper here in the south, had turned such glorious colors that we found ourselves swooning over every courtyard. Could you blame us?

Sunday Church Series - Église-Saint- Étienne-du-Mont

This beautiful church contains the shrine of Saint Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris. Located just beside the Panthéon, yet another church in Paris that should not be missed.

Les Poneys

Eva and Davis enjoyed pony rides here at Luxembourg Gardens and also at Tuileries that summer of 2009.  That's Davis on the right, Eva is hidden behind the Pony Guy!

Paris Jaune

As we made our way through the Marais in search of Le Café des Chats, I spotted one of my favorite doors to photograph, the Hôtel de Châtillon, a hôtel particulier.  I made a mad dash and thankfully Madame was walking just past the entrance to make the photograph complete!

Charmantes Filles

As Meredith Mullins and I stepped outside Le Reminet after a delightful lunch, she spotted a family
that she knew.  They were visiting Paris again,  and I was the lucky one.  I was able to snap these two
delightful girls!

Sunday Church Series - Église Saint-Julien-le Pauvre

This Gothic church built in the 13th century began as a Roman Catholic church but was granted to the Eastern Catholic Melkite community in 1889.  Just across the Seine from Notre Dame de Paris, it shares the block with the lovely Square René Viviani.  This simple church, by Paris standards, would be a a nice addition to your tour of the larger chrurches and cathedrals in the city.

What a nice surprise to find this gentleman playing for passersby while enjoying his coffee and pastry on rue Mouffetard!

I can't remember walking into a shop in Paris where everything wasn't in perfect order.  There is great attention to detail and pride in the displays.  Here at Michel Cluizel, Madame is keeping the chocolats just so. Parfait!

I have been fascinated with the details of la Tour since my very first trip to Paris.  Gustave Eiffel paid hommage to 72 scientists by including their names in the original design.  Sadly they were painted over at one time, but were restored in an 1986 repainting. To see the entire list of names, click HERE.
