Between

When I was taking a walk through the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris I enjoyed seeing groups of green chairs scattered throughout the park.  I liked the arrangement of chairs here because they seemed so casual and friendly, and they were quite comfortable too.  When I look at this picture I notice that the middle chair is between two other chairs.  It is also between the bench and the lawn.  Then I noticed something else.  If you look in the upper left hand corner you will see the Eiffel Tower between some trees.  It looks like Paris in May provides lots of scenes that fit this theme.

Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

When I was in Paris this spring I enjoyed my walk in the Jardin des Tuileries.  I noticed this group of chairs in front a fountain and they looked very cheerful and friendly.  As I prepared to take a picture of them I looked up and saw the obelisk from the Place de la Concorde on the right and the Eiffel Tower to the left.  Surprisingly (at least to me) the famous landmarks were not the focus of this picture.  I really liked those chairs.

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways

When I was in Paris one of the first places I went to see was Notre-Dame Cathedral.  Nearby was a cafe with distinctive tables and chairs.  Since everyone was inside the seats were empty yet they looked friendly and inviting.  I decided to start with a landscape view to get not only the chairs but also the surroundings (including people).   I thought the second photo presented the scene differently and it focused more on the tables and chairs.  After all these decisions so early in the morning I was ready to sit down for a café au lait and people watch.

Travel theme: Peaceful

When I was in Paris I went to the Jardin des Tuileries early on a Sunday afternoon.  There weren’t many people there and it was easy to find a place to sit.  I could choose from a reclining chair or a bench.  There were lovely views in all directions and it was very peaceful.
