Architectural reflection



In the well-heeled 8ième arrondissement
the windows of this grand residence 
reflect its neighbor

Bon weekend

What a classic shot of a perfectly Parisian building, Genie. You must be so looking forward to your next trip.

A rich architecture is reflecting a much more simple one.. Nice contrast!

I like the angle as well as the reflections in this image. Oh how I would love to spend more time in Paris..Honestly if I lived in the UK I would be there every weekend, from Perth it is just sooo far. I have just GOT to win lotto this weekend haha! Have a lovely weekend Genie.

Très très joli... you should see beauties like this in Chicago also, I would guess. Just wanted to wish you a great trip and an enjoyable weekend.

This building is certainly a grand old dame.

A very nice reflection of two beautiful buildings.

Beautiful shot! And I love how the railing on the building looks navy blue instead of black. BTW, when I move to Paris, I want to live there. My million$ and I.

Classic Parisian architecture reflecting classic Parisian ciel bleu en avril! Excellent angle, Genie! Bon weekend and try to find a little time to enjoy Chicago.

A building within a building. I like how the angles/architecture/tones are so similar on each. Lovely details one doesn't see with contmeporary cement blocks.

Bon fin de semaine!

Ooh! I have one of these with a church I'll have to post on Sunday for Holy Sunday! It'll be an homage to this one!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

In this neighborhood with the beautiful April skies Marie and I were snapping all angles and details, discovering much in the architecture... and the windows.

We even saw a line of little students on an outing with their teacher and young moms pushing prams. As we neared Parc de Monceau we dodged an abundance of joggers.

Enjoy your weekend. Working in Chicago, but I will find time to walk down Michigan Avenue to see if the locust trees (?) with their fern-like fronds are turning gold.

Bises,
Genie
