Comment ne peut-on pas tomber amoureux de Paris ?... Les ramoneurs autrefois avaient la chance de surplomber toute cette ville majestueuse... de cheminée en cheminée...
Gros bisous.

Toujours amusant de faire ses photos dans les vitrines et de jouer avec les reflets
Bravo

Richard said...

Très jolie gravure! Je comprends que cette devanture t'ait interpellée!
Bonne journée!

Suzi said...

Love this my friend. 2 sleeps. x

Makes me think of Mary poppins! :)

Andy said...

Yes, you are in Paris Genie. You are also on the outside looking in. Keep on clicking.

That is a nice reflection, lots to see.

What a fabulous shot! Well done.

Jeanne said...

I would never have guessed this is from Galleries Lafayette. Such a unique shot with the reflection of the building behind you. I look at your photos and realize I have much to learn. Wondered if you went to Le Soufflet on your last trip.

Cezar and Léia said...

Behind the camera, perhaps? :)
Fantastic shot!
God bless you!

It reminds me of Sur les Toits, an Hermès scarf. Love it!

Superb reflection capture, Genie! You are a talented and artistic photographer and I love your photos -- and the delightful places you capture! Enjoy your weekend!

Alexa said...

Oh, I was going to say what Virginia said! (or even a wall mural). Good one, Genie.

M said...

Lovely photo -- wonderful reflection!!
And all I can say to Grace (PerthDailyPhoto) is -- HA! we weren't shopping in Galleries Lafayette -- We were just walking by taking pictures!!! Hmmm -- maybe next trip we will need to dedicate one day to some serious shopping ... but only if the exchange rate is better! Bon weekend!

Starman said...

Où suis-je ? Why, Paris of course! Pas encore.

Kate said...

Wouldn't it be fun to make notecards out of this photo?

Jack said...

A cute reflection, Genie. Yup. Paris again.

suzanneberry said...

your photos never cease to excite and please me...this one is spectacular.. as is the one below! amazing eye! you are an artist living in a land filled with subject matter!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Shelley -- Merci, mon amie!

martine -- Tout le monde devrait tomber en amour avec Paris, quand on voit les toit de toutes les cheminées... merci, mon amie, et bon weekend!

autour -- J'aime bien prendre des photos de devantures quand il y a une bonne réflection.

Richard -- Cette gravure est jolie et elle m'a interpellée... merci et bon weekend

Suzi -- I am a bit envious... have a wonderful trip!

Grace -- We were walking and stopping for photos... it was so early that the store was not even open yet!

Malyss Chim chim cher-ee! A sweep is as lucky, as lucky can be! Merci, mon amie

Andy -- Well you know that I took this photo in April ... When I return you will have plenty of advance notice... Merci!

biebkriebels -- Merci and have a wonderful weekend

Yonks -- Thank you and I truly appreciate your comment and visit

Jeanne -- This is a window in the "home store" of GL. The windows are always interesting. Le Soufflé? I did not although I am sure that we walked past it on our first night in Paris... tant pis pour nous.

Cezar -- Aha! You are correct and win a box of virtual macarons!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

AA -- I know that pattern -- You are right!

Karena -- I think that we looked to see if there was a price but I do not think so. It may have just been part of the window display... amazing, no?

Virginia -- It was "une gravure" or a print... I would love to have this art

Chieftess -- Moi aussi!

Sylvia K -- You are most kind with your comments. I love the "discover and capture" of interesting places... merci

Alexa -- Wall mural, yes! Merci, mon amie

Marie -- And, we will need to plan on a checked bag for our flights home!

Starman -- But soon, I imagine!

Kate -- Now, I am really wanting this with its great color and styling...

Jack -- Oui, Paris encore!

Suzanne -- Marci... I do not live there but visit as often as I can... It is clearly full of objects to photograph (or paint)

'Tsuki said...

That is such a funny one, Genie !

The picture inside the display is quite interesting, of course, but I find that the green tree leaves on the reflection add a colorfull touch very delicate, et so very unique to the draw...

Nice idea ! And so well photographied...

cieldequimper said...

One of the best reflections I've seen lately.

Harriet said...

What a great photo. To capture the reflection of the tree which is positioned so perfectly just adds a special touch. I'd love a copy of this print as well!

Stan said...

Hu ha! What an extraordinary image! I think you were looking through the window of a department or toy store containing some small scale model of Paris; and behind you was the birch tree and apartment house. Whatever the truth may be, it is a lovely/creative shot. It certainly gives the viewer a lot to think about, as well as enjoy.

Je ne sais pas où tu es, mais quel joli reflet dans ce tableau, j'adore les toits de Paris avec toutes les cheminées et je trouve que c'est un excellent sujet à peindre !!!
bon dimanche
