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.

Monument

When I was in Paris I saw the Eiffel Tower from many points around the city.  I started to watch for all the different places I could catch glimpses of this monument from parks and streets and at different times of the day.  Here are some of my impressions.

I saw this early in the morning.

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.

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.

Some seating choices:

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

I was in Paris earlier this week.  One afternoon I walked through the Jardin des Tuileries toward the Place de la Concorde looking for the bookstore where I had bought a copy of Madeleine the last time I was there.  I was happy when I saw this sign and went inside to look for another book to buy and take home.
