Paris bleu


A window box without flowers can
still delight with an angel and a dove.

bon weekend

(I was glad to read that you consider Rodin as a Rascal!I agree on that point Ü)
Sometimes, just to add a touch of colour makes it all!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I agree totally Genie the colour and the playful scene make it a work of art in it's own right!! btw I'll save a spot for your yacht next to mine in the harbour haha!!

Your little corners of Paris are delightful!
About Alabama, I will not take your offer to visit seriously, but since we travel to the US every year we might some day pass by Mobile.
As an example here is the book I "helped" my nephew Tomas write last time in Alabama visiting some friends. I'm the one on the dark-blue tie-shirt on the back-cover!

So you know what a crowd to expect for lunch :-)

Such a simple design but so perfect. It's a pity such decoration doesn't adorn some of today's architecture. Have a good weekend.

Yes great shot of a blue angel. Sometimes the joy of discovery is in the little details. Thanks for showing

Paris Paul said...

Your angel who is blue had made me less so!

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

Great shot Genie. I love that French shade of blue. I've never been able to duplicate that shade here. (Sigh)

Louis la Vache said...

Delightful, indeed!

Speedway said...

The blue caught my eye immediately. I love that shade used as trim on houses. What story is depicted by the little cupid fighting with a crow over a bunch of grapes? :-)

Randy said...

You know I love that color! Excellent shot Genie.

louciao said...

Delight is in the details.

Halcyon said...

So pretty! Only in Paris...

Jack said...

Well done, Genie. Focusing in on a small part of the whole has rewarded your fine eye here.

Alexa said...

What Jack just said! Flowers would almost seem superfluous here, I think. Bon weekend, Genie!

VP said...

My favorite kind of detail and an excellent image.

Clueless in Boston said...

It is very nice. Looks like it's been painted more than a few times.

Starman said...

The artist must have made this before pigeons became such a problem.

Loree said...

That looks so lovely and is a perfect shade of blue.

Erika said...

Une image parisienne...Bon fin de semaine à toi-aussi
Bisous.

Harriet said...

I think this is the real 'Parisien bleu'. Lovely photo.

Kris said...

Lovely Genie! I love the color.

Have a great weekend!

How enchanting this is.

Shell Sherree said...

How exquisite ~ and I love the colour {no surprise there, I guess!} And thank you once again for your inspiration, dear Genie.

One of the first lovely things we saw in Chartres .... Such a wonderful trip! Bon weekend ma chère amie!!!

Ninny said...

Gorgeous color! Would look fabulous with orange...like an October sky with pumpkins all around.

I had a chance to combine my two loves in life recently and had a two weeks' holiday in wonderful France, to which I had been before, and had loved so much. I took a little Renault rental car and headed off from Paris, to the Palace of Versailles, to Chartres then southward to sunny Provence, via the Auvergne region, with the Songs of the Auvergne playing repeated on the CD player.
Magnifique, comme toujours. I saw many art galleries and followed the footsteps of artists, like poor Vincent Van Gogh.
Back home all too soon, I ordered a canvas print from wahooart.com, choosing this painting by Cézanne, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWNWL, to remember my trip by.
