Happy New Year!

To finish the 2010 blogging, I thought I could show you a few photos which I for different reasons never published.

The first one (on top) is taken from Montmartre. With good eyes you may recognize (from left to right) the Tour Saint-Jacques, Notre Dame, Saint-Etienne-du-Mont, Saint-Eustache, Pantheon, Sainte-Chapelle.

On the next one, also from Montmartre, one may recognize the Invalides.
This one is just a door knob.
… and this one is “just” a Bentley.
Here is the “Marianne” statue on Place de la République.
A differently dressed young lady.
Some grapes.
Now I wish to thank you all, “followers”, for your interest in my blog and for all your visits and comments during 2010. You have all been more faithful “followers” than I have managed to be, especially lately. Once more; sincere thanks!!
Due to lack of time, I will probably somewhat reduce the number of posts in 2011, not be posting regularly (more or less every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as until now), but I will still post and still visit your blogs - only possibly a bit more “now and then”.

Now let’s hope for a really nice 2011, which I really wish you all (and myself)! The champagne bottle is ready to be opened!

Enjoy your champagne Peter. Here's hoping for a fantastic 2011. And we're hoping to be out again so maybe we can meet you for a glass of red or two.

Wish I could come help you celebrate with the champagne! I'll have some cheap stuff here in Arizona for you! Happy New Year.

Happy New Year from Casablanca!

Flartus said...

Lovely, lovely pictures. Thanks for labeling the first one--I can never remember the names of the Tour St. Jacques and St. Eustache; that would have driven me mad! And I adore the second shot, with the crazy-quilt of rooftops and facades.

Thanks once again for sharing the day-to-day beauty and culture of "our" city. You are worth following, even if you only post every other week!

Synne said...

Happy New Year to you, Peter! I wish you all the best for 2011!

1004 suiveurs !!! Dont moi dans les tous premiers et non seulement en abonné fidèle mais visiteuse depuis tes tous débuts !
Je n'en ai que 15 dont je suis fière et qui me sont précieux, dont toi cher Peter !
Non seulement Paris est à tes pieds mais aussi les sirènes de Paris sont à ta botte.
L'année prochaine tu fais ce que tu veux, le principal est que l'on puisse te joindre et boire une petite coupe ensemble pour fêter les bonnes occasions ou déjeuner ou aller chez Angelina.
Une heureuse année prochaine à toi, pleine de projets réalisés !

Nadege said...

Hoping your wishes will come true Peter.
Have a delighful, prosperous new year!

Spendid Peter! Have a Happy New Year and keep the pictures coming.

Vagabonde said...

A happy New Year from Atlanta, Georgia. It is always a pleasure to look at your beautiful pictures of Paris – kind of bittersweet as I miss my hometown, but with your pictures I don’t feel so far away. Merci pour toutes ces belles photos et que 2011 t’apportes du bonheur, de la joie et de l’inspiration pour beaucoup d’autres posts.

Ruth said...

Bonne Annee, Peter! I love the views from Montmartre, that gorgeous light. I hope you will show us many more interesting and beautiful corners of Paris in the year ahead. All the best of health and joy to you, my friend!

Happy New Year you dear sweet man, thank you for showing me the PARIS I hope to see one day. May your 2011 be filled with LOVE, JOY, and LIGHT

Shammickite said...

I wish you a Very Happy and Productive New Year, Peter. I haven't been commenting just recently, due to an overabundance of cold germs, broken computer monitors, unpacked boxes and Christmas Cheer! But now it's 2011 and I have to get back into BlogMode!
HAPPY 2011, Peter, I'll be checking your blog more often now.

Starman said...

I could swear the statue in Place de la République used to be Columbus. Or am I just losing it?

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Happy New Year, Peter... so glad that I have had the opportunity to get to know you... what a gracious, generous "transplant" who loves Paris and its history... I look forward to a return visit!

Bisous,
Genie

Virginia said...

Oh Peter,
How much fun to see your snippets of Paris. The views of Paris are wonderful of course as I never tire of those, but I laugh at the statue of Marianne as I believe that's where I dropped my sweater and had to make the long trek back to fetch it. The champagne? Well I'm ready for lots of that of course.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year full of peace and happiness.

Soon!!!

Je te souhaite une très bonne année 2011 !

Jeanie said...

And to you, Peter -- a new year where loss and sadness isn't so present, where peace will find its tender footsteps, and beauty will be ever present in our words, hearts and friendships. Happy New Year.

Delphinium said...

Une bonne année à toi aussi Peter et plein de belles rencontres pour toi via ton blog et tes multiples activités et aussi beaucoup de champagne, mais pas trop à la fois, juste une bouteille par jour. Je t'embrasse

Louise said...

Happy New Year to you too Peter. I've long wondered how you managed to post quite as often as you do. It will be a shame to see less of your marvellous posts, but as an infrequent blogger myself I certainly understand. BTW I just love the door knob, and hope you enjoyed your New Year champagne as much as I enjoyed mine.

Maddalena said...

Thank you, Peter, for this beautiful and sweet post and for your wishes. Paris is amazing, indeed, I must admit it after seeing these pictures. Maybe Paris is even as beautiful as Florence, just in a completely different style. I will check it :-) Happy New Year to you!
