Paris connections, part 2

One of my favorite things about Paris is that everything is somehow connected. Here’s the second clue. What does it have to do with yesterday’s photo? I will reveal all on Sunday.

Paris’ pavers come in a variety of sizes. You’ll find large ones like these mostly along the quays that line the Seine river.

  3. I love Paris and especially because I went there it’s Merci beautiful. I am so happy that I went to see the beauty. The cafe, the wine, the people Fantastic.

      Fantastic is a great way to sum it up! Glad you have so many fond memories, Robin — and thank you for stopping by.

  4. Beautiful photograph.

      Thank you! One advantage of the cobblestones is that they force you to look down and notice these things. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!

  5. I don’t know the answer, but I really like the photo!

      That’s good enough for me, Tom! 🙂 Thank you for your kind words.

  6. I am fond of reflected water pictures. This one seems quite special because of the rather unfortunately formed pond.

    First guess (and please don’t tell us if I am right, and feel free to delete or edit the post)

    something to do with tall structures ore aspirations/spires.

      You are very close on the aspirations part, Anthony! That is all i will say to keep up the (silly, I know) suspense. 😉

      • It’s not silly at all. I love guessing games, logic puzzles and the like. I never want to give up. I will keep guessing.

        • 15 Heide

          Good for you, Anthony! Curiosity is a wonderful thing; it keeps the mind young. Today’s clue is coming up shortly!

  7. Beautiful!

    Thank you SO MUCH! I greatly appreciate your kind words.

  9. Very magical! The reflection looks like another world you could enter into; another dimension shown to us via another perspective 🙂

      I love your observation, Lara! It *is* rather like an alternate universe, isn’t it? Your comment reminded me of a couple of scenes from Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell — if you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it! Now, thanks to you, I will always associate reflections in puddles with that magical book. 🙂

  10. Love this image! You truly know how to capture Paris and all it’s beauty. Thank you for sharing it with us. 🙂

    The picture is beautiful 😀

  14. Are they all connected by Bresson?

    • 37 Heide

      What a marvelous question! That wasn’t where I was leading when I first conceived this series, but now you have me wondering if there *could* be a Bresson connection, James … I shall investigate when I get settled in from my move.

      • Bresson was in a camp for 35 during WW2, escaped on his third attempt, and starting working for the resistance. There is a good chance he photographed Paris in a way to show it had recovered from war afterwards.

          I *greatly* enjoyed your post on Bresson, James — I learned a lot of interesting facts about him that had somehow escaped me before. And thanks to you, I’m also seeing his work in Paris from a new perspective.
