Poor Jeanette...



Yes, it was snowing… poor « Jeanette ». She was portrayed by Paul Belmondo, the dad of Jean-Paul. She is one of the many statues in the Tuileries Gardens.

I think that on average we have one (or half-a) day of snow per year here in Paris. So it happened last Tuesday. I had some walking to do, so…

There were rather few tourists around, see the poor one alone on the upper deck of the excursion boat.

I didn’t see a single book stall open.

… and some more views.

Intressant att pappa Belmondo var skulptör!

No one sitting outside enjoying a coffee, huddled around a heater and wrapped in a blanket?

Always beautiful, Peter, maybe even more so with a dusting of snow. Thanks for a lovely walk.

Jeanette! She reminds me of the photos I've seen of the beautiful and formidable Inessa Armand when young...
I see that it finally got cold in France! Paris, of course...wonderful in the snow!
In the meatime, here, in the Chicago area last Monday morning, it was 13 degrees colder than in Novosibirsk, Siberia...
Thank you, Peter.

I love Paris when it is snowing,,,soft spoken snow creating ephemeral works of art, soon to melt away like a morning dream in a city that is eternally beautiful

Your photo's capture the timeless beauty of this wonderful place called Paris.
thank you , Peter
