Oh, this is dreamy, Genie (you can take that in more than one way, of course). :~}

A tutu for Princess Tutu?

I had intended to drag Peter in there and get some shots but the SOLDES started that day and it looked like the After Thanksgiving Sale at Macy's in there. I was afraid for my life so we stayed outside and shot the window. I'm sure Peter breathed a sigh of relief!

Great shot this one.

Oh, makes me remember of a "feuilleton tele" I used to look at when I was a little girl,with "les petits rats de l'opéra"!(that's how we call very young dancers in french, little rats!)

Oh, the fluffs of tulle! I just want to get my hands and face in them! How beautiful.

I really need to take the Opera Garnier tour someday.
This looks great in black and white.

I also posted a b&w Paris photo today and I took it not far from here.

I've never done the inside tour. I'll have to remedy that one day. Maybe in June.

Miss Sadie said...

More than two tutus, by my count. Still, quite fascinating. Delightful photo.

Loree said...

What a pretty photo. I wonder where all the ballerinas were!

Owen said...

I almost expected to see scrawled on the wall, "Degas was here"...

Peter said...

Nanette said...

Abby said...

Great shots! Reminds me of when I used to take ballet.

Sara Louise said...

Amazing! What a whimsical sight to see all those tutus!

Virginia said...

I read it too fast. You were at Opera Garnier? I'll bet it was the gift shop?? I tried to persuade my crew to let me get in there but they poo pooed that idea.
