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.
Reblogged this on O LADO ESCURO DA LUA.
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.
Thank you! One advantage of the cobblestones is that they force you to look down and notice these things. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!
LOL. I can imaging you would need to. They tend to be a lot uneven.
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.
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.
Good for you, Anthony! Curiosity is a wonderful thing; it keeps the mind young. Today’s clue is coming up shortly!
Thank you! It’s such a simple thing, but it’s one of my favorite photos from my last trip.
…from your happy place.
::) <—- That's me smiling, with my four eyes.
Thank you SO MUCH! I greatly appreciate your kind words.
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. 🙂
“) I haven’t read! But now I’ve something else for the ongoing reading list =)) Love that –
Love this image! You truly know how to capture Paris and all it’s beauty. Thank you for sharing it with us. 🙂
And thank YOU for stopping by and brightening my day with your kind and encouraging words!
Thank you so much!
Gotta love a reflection! 🙂
Yes, sir … even if getting them in focus can sometimes be maddedning. 🙂
And getting down really low to be able to see in the puddle! 🙂
… without falling in. 😀
The picture is beautiful 😀
Thank you! (Et en français aussi … merci !)
You’re welcome (et de rien 😀)
Are they all connected by Bresson?
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.
Ah very good. He was a character. Dali was involved in selling surrealism. They kicked him out after asking him to be their PR man. He was too talented is my opinion.
