Jardin du Palais Royal



Jardin du Palais Royal


The fountain of the Palais Royal garden is surrounded by people green chairs and sitting on the edge of the fountain in warm weather.  


As you can see, even in the the frigid temperatures of winter 
the fountain still attracts the hardy, 
the young, and those in contemplation.


bon weekend

Hello Genie:
We are always so drawn to these black and white images which are, of course, so appropriate for the time of year. There is something particularly fascinating about fountains playing in a largely unpeopled, winter landscape, there to be enjoyed by the intrepid few.

J'ai été surprise effectivement de voir que les jets d'eau soient en fonction malgré les températures hivernales...
Une belle photo.
Gros bisous

Gorgeous B&W Genie, how adorable is the little girl in all her winter clothes. I think my next trip to Paris will have to be in winter.

Such a peaceful image... I love the little one in her winter coat.
Thank you so much Genie for your sweet words.. I don't usually share photos of myself (camera shy) but this was such a special day..
Thank you for taking time out to visit.
bisous! Penny

I too like this. I always marveled at how French people seemed to be underdressed in cold weather, except for the kids.

Perfect in b/w, Genie! I've always been a Left Bank gal, but even when I was very young and living in the heart of the action in St. Germain, I would have left it in a heartbeat for the chance to live on this quiet garden. Bon weekend --

You left out the main group...the crazies!

The light is beautiful. The entire scene perfection!

What a beautiful place to sit and reflect.

Superb, Genie. It was genius of you to place the slumping girl in the chair and the staring little girl just where you placed them.

Louise said...

Another beautiful photo. We visited here quite a bit too, even had breakfast by the fountain on our last morning in Paris. Thanks for the memories.
