Theme Day - What Would I Miss Most...



Les Enfants de Paris


What would I miss most about Paris if I were never to return?
How can one even think in those terms?

...the people of Paris,
the children, the parks and gardens, the green chairs,
the music, the churches, the architecture, the history, the Seine, the bridges,
the Métro, the secret little spots discovered over 20+ trips, the food,
ex-pat friends, Parisian friends, the grand views from Paris landmarks,
sitting on green grass when it is permitted, dancing on Rue Mouffetard, 
and so much more.

No matter what the future holds, I will always have a bit of Paris, 
and all that it is, in my heart.

(and tens of thousands of photos, if I forget)



What Would I miss most?
75000, all of it, Paris

Your postscript about the photos made me smile...I'm not sure I have tens of thousands of photos of Aveyron, but certainly thousands. Imagine if I lived in Paris!

Lovely photo. It has such spirit!

Andy said...

Good answers Genie. This is one question that deserves many replies.

Revrunner said...

Easily the children. And you do such a good job at capturing their joie de vivre. :-)

Very cute photo! I can understand why it would be too hard to pick just the one thing!!

Jeanie said...

This is such a delightful photo, Genie. You're so very good at getting that slice of life image!

Alexa said...

An impossible choice—but I love this photo you've used to illustrate it. (And I have to say: must be a feisty little French girl!)

A marvelous shot! I particularly like the one child who's looking off away from the others. She seems quite contemplative.

How can I thank you more for this image? It takes me to the place I miss most... my childhood. And gets me on that whirling disc.
Now I realize the most I can do is to re-learn to be myself child.
Thank you Genie, its a BEAUTIFUL image of a group of professors.

Kay said...

You make me remember so many things I've loved about Paris! And this is a wonderful shot, too. Thank you!

Jack said...

Pretty much everything, Genie.

Randy said...

You do photograph them so well.

Lovely! You describe the essence of what I expect many of us feel about the places we live.
