Love how the focus is on the red roses while Notre Dame is out of focus in the background :)

Two beautiful things in one photo. Nice shot.

Love the juxtaposition of the art of nature and man together.

Not quite the center of the world, but definitely the center of France. On the Parvis Notre Dame, the square in front of the church, there is that sign from which all distances to and from Paris are measured. They call it the geographical center of France, which is, still geographically speaking, sheer nonsense.

Superbe!
Très joli contraste entre la couleur de la pierre et ce joli rouge!
Merci pour le partage, Genie. Et merci pour ta visite et petit mot sympa;o)

Hello Genie:
It may be slightly perverse but we rather like to see roses as they go over when the petal colour tends to intensify.
