un Perrier et le Métro

Oblivious to the Perrier bubbles, 
there was no effervescence 
with these three commuters

Palais Royal - Pelouse Interdite!

The gorgeous green lawn of the Jardin du Palais Royal
is as beautiful as the greens of the Augusta National Golf Club,
but you would have an easier time receiving permission to walk
on the greens of the Masters than you would the green grass of
many Paris parks and gardens.

I did take a nap on one such forbidden lawn 
in Paris, but that is another story....

Le Grand Chat de la rue

"the big cat of the street"

Guarding this restaurant window on le premier étage
is this realistic and muscular feline.
As you look up from the street you can feel his stare.

I wonder if he chose this spot for the poissons et fruits de mer 
(fish and seafood) featured on the restaurant menu.

"Here, kitty-kitty - nice kitty."

Une éclaireuse

Place Saint-Sulpice

Gathered in the large Place Saint-Sulpice
were many scouts (boys and girls) of all ages.
It was a day of  recognition and awards.
