Isn't everything a "tourist shot" in Paris? No matter. Je l'aime bien, moi, le Moulin de la Galette! Jolie photo, Genie. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
Très bel endroit effectivement,Pierre
Genie, are all shots of Paris tourist shots? Just like there is no such thing as an original idea?
J'adore les moulins..Je te souhaite une belle journée.
belle journée, Genie !
«Louis» would like to try this. He is SO HAPPY you found Moulin de la Vierge!
Nice shot, unusual angle. And anyway, what's wrong with tourist shots? Don't we all do it???
What a delightful memory this photo elicits! The little patio, warm, sunny day, friendly conversation and delicious meal are as vivid today as last April. I hope you are able to enjoy some time there after a walk through Montmartre!
It is indeed. I"ve only seen it on a cold/rainy day in January. Why in spring, it's downright cheery! I hope you have déjeuner there again this trip.xxV
What a delightful looking place! I would love to have lunch/dinner whatever there! Marvelous, colorful capture for the day, Genie!HugsSylvia
do not know it... if I should do everything you are writing about or showing pictures of, I should simply move to Paris
I haven't been to Montmartre in a very long time.
The so-called "tourist places" are often the most fun, either because of or despite their rep. Hey, I'd still rather sit on the terrace of the Flore than pretty much any other café in Paris.
When Peter, Marie and I were here in April, there were as many French as tourists. It was also during a holiday period, so even the French diners might have been counted in the tourists. The food was quite good and Peter reported that he has eaten there since, recommending to others. However, restaurants in Paris often change as quickly as the weather.The weather was a combination of mist and cool temperatures which turned to a steady rain as I walked "home" tonight. Although I am sweet, I did not melt (sourire).Thank you for the comments... Louis, I am thrilled that I found that patisserie!Alexa, I would love to sit with you on the terrace at the Flore!Bises,Genie
Genie,This is a lovely photo even if it is a tourist shot...it is still beautiful!Kris
If you recommend it, we'll have to go! :-)
One of my favorites places that I have got to visit. Beautiful photo.
It's beautiful!! Love the colors and I'd like to be a tourist there!
The reason they are tourist shots is that they are striking, and either typical or unusual . . . either end of the spectrum. Shoot away!!!
That's a big windmill. Not something I would expect to see in Paris.
I remember having lunch there many years ago. It was delicious, we were the only tourists in the joint, and the view was exceptional.
You say "tourist shot", I say "postcard perfect"!
And van Gogh once lived right across the street, a bit down the hill, I think. I've never tried this place, but will.
Keep the 'tourist shots' coming. Since we are not in Paris with you, we want to see EVERYTHING!!!
