Carrousel XXX - Hôtel de Ville



Carrousel - Hôtel de Ville


There is nothing as spectacular as a carrousel at night in a glory of lights.


It is even better when you throw your head back 
to see La Tour Eiffel as you are spinning.



bon weekend

Lovely shot Genie. I must be seriously blind, I've never seen this carousel... Or I think the other famous one over near the Eiffel Tower itself.

It seems France has a lot of carousels, much more than the US

Wonderful shot of one of my fave Paris carrousels. (I'm kind of partial to the yellow airplane—not that I'd fit in it!) Bon weekend to you --

Love the carousels in Paris.

Randy said...

That is very beautiful.

Jack said...

I know how much you love carousels. This must have been like a candystore.

Mary said...

A wonderful carousel and the magnificent Eiffel Tower... hm.. sounds a little like Heaven!

There are so many carousels in Paris that I am not sure that I could count them all. I know of some that were "shuttered" on previous visits and there are a few that I must see still. See? I should have said photograph.

From the elaborate double-deckers like this one to the simple one with rings and simple horses, they are treasures.

Bises,
Genie
