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…

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!

Happy Fathers Day

Happy Fathers Day

One of my favorite photographs from Paris. It was a rainy Sunday evening. The sun was hitting the wet cobblestone streets just right to make them glisten. I love watch the father and son walking up ahead. Happy Fathers Day!

Finding my way

0

I am not new to Paris but new to Montmartre. I have only visited Paris and I have never stayed for a long period of time. In so many different ways I am still finding my way…

There are so many grocery stores and boulangeries I have not picked my favorite yet. Although I love a croissant in the morning I can’t eat one everyday. I think I have found my breakfast of choice. Its about a 15 minute walk each day to a street I like in Montmartre where I think I have found my boulangerie. I will post more about that another time.

It took me two attempts but I finally found Rue Montorgueil. Its a very famous market street that has lots of different food vendors. Its difficult to find but I am glad I finally made it there.

One of my favorite things about this street is the mosaic design done in white. You can see it here with the cafe chairs facing outward. It was a very cold February day but I am sure its great in warmer weather

Thanks for following me as I find my way through Paris. Tomorrow I am looking forward to discovering one of the biweekly markets in my neighborhood
