Rue de Roi du Sicile - un éléphant bleu



A blue elephant?


It seems that a photographer cannot pass this thai restaurant
in the Marais without taking aim.  
It does not matter how many times you have snapped before.


Last week, the green plants and splash of pink orchid 
called out for another shot.  
The blue skies created a nice reflection.

That's one I wish I'd discovered. It couldn't have been too far from my 'hood if it was in the Marais!

M said...

Ha! I would have snapped it again, too! I need my own blue elephant!!!

Wonder how many people are drawn into that place by the blue elephant. I can see why you can't resist it—again and again!

Hi Genie.

That is such a pretty shot, Genie... The person who composed the dosplay has an excellent taste : it is very harmonious.

Thanks for joining!

Actually, I didn't take my photo at "Pause-Café" that's just the title(Coffee Break). However I know you've past by the spot many times. (It was right behind you when you took your March 29th post photo) "Place André Malraux - la fontaine de jouvence?"

The man in my photo was in the doorway of the rug store called "Le Palais du Tapis" (4 place André Malraux 75001)
