I started to clean up my photo files and discovered a few things that I should perhaps show you... in a complete disorder.
The top picture is showing a small corner of the Pantheon (see previous post) and the Saint-Etienne-du-Mont church (see previous post)... and of course, the moon. Together with Karen from Florida (Kissimmee DP and Collage Maven’s Haven) - we were on our way to enjoy the “Nuit Blanche” (see previous post).
A long time ago I promised Terrie (Feasting with pixels), living close to Chicago, with strong Paris attachments and an excellent guide especially for good eating, to take some photos of Square-du-Cardinal-Wyszynski, Paris 14. The famous cardinal was a relative of hers! The square is just in front of the interesting church Notre-Dame-du-Travail (see previous post). I tried a few times, never felt I could get the pictures I wanted, but anyhow, here are a few examples.
I thought that our NYC macaroon expert, Carol (ParisBreakfasts) may have missed this patisserie with the inscription “Bourbonneux – ses macarons”, to be found rue Monge, Paris 5? ... and I’m also rather sure that these flower shops are in her taste, one in the Belleville area (see previous posts). The other one is “my” flower shop, in the Batignolles area (see previous posts).
Serge Gainsbourg, famous songwriter and singer, Gauloise smoker, closely “related” to Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Adjani..., died in 1991, but the wall in front of the house where he lived, rue de Verneuil, Paris 7, is still covered by graffiti. Also the decoration of his grave at the Montparnasse cemetery (see previous post) is a bit surprising.
To park in Paris requires sometimes some difficult exercise. Better avoid Hummers.
This may look as if some old foundations have been kept when this house, rue Pierre Nicole, Paris 14, was built in 1979. It seems however that it was all just added as a decoration.
Oscar Wilde died here, Hotel d’Alsace, rue des Beaux-Arts, Paris 6. His grave is at the Père-Lachaise cemetery (see previous post).
Well, I may have to continue the “cleaning” another day!
