Jardin des Tuileries -- Vert



Green folliage, green chairs, green bottles...



Love the ambiance of this park scene in Jardin des Tuileries: two friends and color coordination all around

Green is lively. Green is spring — nice to be outside, but have a good overcoat handy.

You've caught a pretty typical scene!

Jilly said...

you captured such a lovely moment between these two. They both look so relaxed - they know how to do it! And it works so well with the out of focus greenery in the foreground.

Andy said...

Ah, hiding behind the bushes?

biebkriebels said...

Yes, they are having a great time together.

I love this picture...

Julie said...

But I wonder if they are not only friends, but also sisters. Their profiles are so similar in many respects.

Cezar and Léia said...

Hi Genie!
I've missed looking at your gorgeous images. I'll have to trail back to see some of your old posts.

As for this photo..what a shot! I love it! I love how comfortable and real these two ladies look. They look like real friends

A delightful moment captured!!! When I see those green chairs...this is what I envision!!!

Jeanne said...

Green is such a peaceful color. Great shot!

Starman said...

One thing is for certain about the crazy French people...one will never be able to tell what the weather is like from the way they're dressed!

Le vert est une couleur remplie d'espoir... C'est un anti-stress, elle apporte un équilibre mental...
Gros bisous

Alexa said...

You forgot 'green with envy'—what I am as I see them there in the jardin! :~}

Loree said...

I guess green was the colour of the day.

Ninny said...

Yes, and it's chilly, so they've drawn up their legs, pulled their sleeves over their hands and are sitting in the last rays of sunshine. Not wanting to leave just yet, they are enjoying one another's company while they keep their eyes on the little ones, who are not affected by the chill. Your pictures of people always tell stories, Genie!

Randy said...

Those are some of the best moments.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Bear -- It was a bit chilly on this day but no wind so if you sat in the sun it was quite comfortable

Grace -- Merci, and I do too!

megi -- Merci beaucoup, mon amie!

Suzi -- Yes, and now I am vert!

Agapya -- Большое спасибо за Ваш визит

Ciel -- Yes, and I wish I was in that typical scene right now!

Jilly -- They do look like there is not a care in the world... good friends sharing the late afternoon

Andy -- Alas! You have caught me!

biebkriebels -- Nothing better than good times with friends

Pierre -- So glad... merci, mon ami

Julie -- When I put this photo up I thought the same thing... either sisters or such good friends that they even resemble each other

Léia -- Merci, mon amie

Virginia -- Love that late afternoon setting sun... merci!

AA -- It was not overly crowded on this weekday afternoon... perfect for the cameras

Marie -- Merci, and it was a fun stroll with you and Peter

Brittany -- So glad to see you back from China... I'll visit you soon!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Chieftess -- I would love some of those green chairs for my garden and I would have to transport the limestone gravel/soil too!

Jeanne -- Green just feels so fresh and new in the spring... merci, mon amie

Starman -- Well, you are right about that one! However, these two were just appropriately dressed as the sun was setting and it was getting cool in the park

martine -- C'est vrai and vert est une couleur qui est parfait pour printemps... merci

Alexa -- Well, then we just match perfectly - hah!

Loree -- It was on this glorious afternoon in Jardin des Tuileries... merci!

Liz -- You are very observant, my friend. I love to see the stories and fill in the blanks with my imagination and photos... merci

Randy -- Indeed!

Dreamer -- Well, this is still spring and by summer they may have a crowd of people nearby... but they were enjoying the chat-time together... merci!

Jack said...

The fact that this is a common scene does not detract from it being an appealing one, which you captured well. The personalities of the two girls and their comfort with one another come through.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Jack -- It seemed as if they had been there for several hours from the empty bottles beneath the chairs. Merci, for all that you notice...

Richard said...

Le jardin des Tuileries est l'un de mes préférés. Grands espaces, jolis massifs, chaises accueillantes. Beaucoup de monde, mais dans le respect de chacun.
Un lieu propice pour donner un rendez-vous galant...

They seem to have a great time! I hope that one day I will sit there myself with a friend.
