Favorite Place on Rue St. Dominique and Summer Exhibit


A favorite little spot I just had to share. 
Am missing Paris these days
and wishing I'd been there for the Paris Plage this summer
and ohh-so-many-other-things! 

If I were there now,
I'd hop on over to the Parisienne en Ete vintage photography exhibition
at the Docks en Seine (until October 6th)~ 
48 Black and Whites of Paris in the summertime 
taken between 1880 and 1960 
by Boris Liptnitzki and Henri Roger of the Viollet-Roger Agency.
It's a free and outdoor gallery along the Quai d'Austerlitz.

And then... I'd go take a few summer shots of my own.

This is a beautiful building. And yes, I miss Paris, too. I'd certainly be at that exhibition!

Bonjour ma belle!

Another fabulous corner of Paris that you have beautifully photographed here! How I wish I could have been back to Paris this year....so much to embrace.

Thank you for coming to visit me; I have been crazy busy with going back to school to prepare for next week's RENTRÉE! I will be teaching high school and middle school FRENCH only from now on; I used to teach elementary level in a French immersion, so I taught ALL subjects in French which was phenomenal, but now I'd rather focus just on the language.

I hope you are well? May the "blues" change to happy hues of aqua and and other peaceful colors and KNOW my dear, that love conquers all. Anita

Just once...

You make me long to visit just once. Well, really a thousand times, but I'd be happy with one.
