Le lustre



Walking back to the apartment after a night shoot,
this chandelier caught my eye.


The fine furnishings, architectural features and golden glow
give a glimpse only seen at night.



75001, Paris

Nice one Genie also the wooden list around the glass.

Normally, I am not a fan of the little lampshades; however, these really complete the look. I love the warm lighting ... it gives the entire photo a golden luster :)

Beautiful chandelier! I also love the amber colored glow emitting from the window. I think it adds to the feeling of a home that is warm and comfortable.

I would be happy to hang out there!

Love the warm glow.

Alexa said...

Lovely ambience—and nice curlicues too! I'm not envious of their chandelier though—if I had it I'd always be up on a ladder straightening the shades. :~}

You are a fantastic photographer ...and a peeping Tom? :)

This is a lovely shot!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Vreni and Jack, so glad to know the owners. We'll all be coming for un apéro shortly!

Lisa, I almost put the "I am a Peeping Tom" on the post itself - hah! I do love to see pretty homes at night with the lights on, not to see the people, just the lovely glow of the well-furnished home.

Meresi, thank you for the Independence Day wishes!

Yes, the shade straightening would bother me too, Alexa.

Have a wonderful week, a holiday week if you are in the USA.

I am watching Le Tour* daily and keeping up with some favorites, the leaders and the beautiful countryside. We can watch it live or later in the day as it runs continuously!

Bises,
Genie

That chandelier is extremely beautiful. I can't see how it couldn't catch your eye.
