Blink. Paris Moments

6

Paris is filled with charm. The fun part for me is catching the moments that happen for a blink and then they are gone. This morning it was not sunny and I had not planned to walk over the Seine. At the exact moment I did I caught this:

A man was walking over the bridge and watched me capture the moment. He asked to see the image on my camera to see if I was able to capture the beauty that was in front of us. Luckily I think I did ok 😉

I walked in circles today visiting Paris and showing a friend around to some of my favorite spots. I had my first savory crepe today. What took me so long? I popped by one of my favorite streets for a baguette and then I noticed this bike that had flowers on the back. It was next to a flower shop so I assumed it was part of the display. But quickly realized it was really someone’s bike. Picture perfect I had to grab it while I could. He was extremely patient and gave me a few extra snaps. He just couldn’t figure out why I was so fascinated with this image. For him its normal…

Bike about Paris

I tend to collect a lot of different things on my walks: old cars, doors, and well yes bikes. The Parisians love their bikes. My favorite are the ones that have collected items from the market and they fill their basket. Here are some from my most recent trip in October.

A walk on Rue Montorgueil

7

Rue Montorgueil is one of my favorite streets to walk down in Paris. Its just a few blocks but its filled with cafes, boulangeries, and food shops. There is a flower shop at the end of the street that I pretty much drool over every time I walk by. You can easily get food for a picnic or dinner just by visiting this street. Don’t miss Stohrer for the best eclair in Paris!
