Rue Cler - les sapins de Noël

Les sapins de Noël 

Most of the trees in Paris are quite petite compared to what one might see in the US.

If I lived there, I would want a small tree no taller than me, 
perhaps one like the little one on the right.  The log stands are beyond charming.

The one on the right is adorable. And full and pretty. Perfect size. I prefer the small ones. Many of our friends here in the Pacific Northwest get enormous Noble Firs. They're beautiful, but a little overdone, i think. (Don't tell them i said that, lol.) Beautiful shot, Genie!

All wrapped up and ready to ride the Metro! I think little, round trees are so cute! Joyeux Noël !

They look like a bunch of cold trees. Nice wrapped up.

those are left after we bought the tall ones ;) Happy holidays :)

I really prefer smaller trees and think they are much more personal and meaningful. I also think adding small Christmas vignettes in each room brings the spirit into every room.

In case I don't get around to visiting you in the next few days leading up to Christmas, I am sending you and your family warm wishes for a very Joyeux Noel and Bonne Annee. :)♥

The French Christmas trees are a bit anemic.

This photo is mesmerizing . . .the fact that you made it black and white is a perfectly awesome technique for the subject, with that webbing on the trees. You totally captured an emotional moment, that most would have walked right past. That's genius :)
Merry Christmas
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Ruth Asawa sculptures meet Christmas tradition.

That would be because they have to drag them home! I wonder if anyone has ever tried to take one on the Métro!!!

I too think they look like people, lively people! Bonne fêtes de fin d'année, Genie. Rita
