The City Of Love ....

They do say that Paris is the city of love (although, in my eyes, Venice comes a very close second), so what better than to post some images of that romantic city for you today.

Hotel de Ville de Paris, France

It is ten years now since my daughter and her family moved across to Paris, so I'm lucky to have been there many, many times.  I still love it every time I visit, the romance and sheer magnificence of that beautiful city.

Montmartre, Paris    Seriously one of the cutest parts of the city.
Photo taken in Monmartre - one of my favourite areas of the city

Another view of the Sacre Couer` in the Monmartre district

Sacre Coeur!   One gasps every time turning a corner in Paris... there's always something to see.
The amazing Sacre Couer`Moulin Rouge, Monmartre, Paris
The famous Moulin Rouge is also in the district of Monmartre

Well, I hope these images have given you a flavour of this wonderful City of Paris and, who knows, you may even be able to visit there some time.

Your pictures made my heart beat just a little faster. (I guess that is what Paris does to one). Exquisit photos. What kind of camera do you clear... like the pictures I used to get with my old Leica. Now I just use a cheapy digital and end up with blurry photos. God, Paris is beautiful.

Oh Thisisme! So beautiful. I have always wanted to see Paris. These are most beautiful! I am really enjoying your posts. Am commenting from my phone and I'm not very good at it. See you later.

Hallo hallo hallo, dear Thisisme! I've never been to Paris but I can dream, can't I? When you combine the dazzling grandeur of the architecture, the statuary, floral accents, the smell of French cuisine, the exciting sounds of the city, the people and the feeling of romance that envelopes you there, you have an experience that will surely remain one of the highlights of your life. I envy you.

Thank you for this marvelous collection of postcards, dear friend Thisisme. Happy Monday to you and enjoy the rest of your week!

You have been successful in changing my mind about Paris. I have never cared one way or the other about it but seeing your photos and hearing what you have to say about it I would love to go for a visit sometime. THANKS FOR SHARING!!!!!!!!!!

BECKY said...

Oh, Diane! I SO wish I was there right now! If only I could twist my nose the way Samantha, the witch on TV, always did! LOL

I don't know that there's a more beautiful city on earth~ said...

Oh your pictures are all breathtaking.

My Grandddaughter loved it.

Maybe one day she can go back.

She went wit the school way back many years but she said it was a real wow place.

Loved to see the artistry of the
beautiful city.

Plus the La,la fashions.

She even bought me a beautuful la,al bracket and her Mom.

She got herself a awesome jean jacket.

I think all schools should let the kids have that opportunity to go to Paris but you also have to have the mullah to go and spend.

Not everyone has that. Sad. Right.

It means only the wealthy can go.

As it is very,very expensive.
