From the rooftop of Printemps
...the view is spectacular


Do you see the boxes on the roof of Palais Garnier?


bee hives!
Can you get me a ticket to that roof?
I would be ever so grateful...
I love the bees!

Hello Genie, this is a beautiful photo, lovely view!

Yes great view Genie. I knew that you had also a splendid view from the roof of la Samaritaine. The shop with the cast iron interior on board of the Seine. It was free for the customers inside. If it is now after restoration I don't know.

Excellent shot. The weathervane is impressive.

Fascinating capture ... So much detail to be explored! The sideways caduceus is intriguing! Have a fabulous day!

Mary said...

Wonderful! Bees are magnificent, and so vital to life. And of course they produce delicious honey. Just one more reason to adore them! Beautiful photo. :)

Curieux paratonnerre. Un caducée embroché et cette couronne avec un "N" ? N comme Napoléon III ?

I've been on the roof of Galeries Lafatyette, but not Printemps. An equally fabulous view. How wonderful would it be to be on the roof of the Opera Garnier? I bought a little pot of the honey made by those bees on our last trip to Paris, and ate it in Australia.
