Paris: Princess Diana

This is a replica of the flame from the Statue of Liberty but has become the place to pay homage to Princess Diana. It is near the road where she was in the fatal accident. People come and place flowers here. I took this photo on a cold and snowy day in December. I'm posting it because on my Kissimmee Daily Photo Blog I have a post about a temporary museum dedicated to her.

More Paris Windows



I like the reflections in this one


The pink scarf drew me into the store but I bought a different one.


This coat doesn't look bad in the photo but trust me, it was the ugliest thing I'd ever seen. It was poorly made from very tacky cheap fabrics. I passed it a few times before taking the photo.

More Paris Photos

The Palais Royal was one of my favorite places to visit.
It was just a short walk from my hotel.


These were taken on a cold afternoon and there weren't a lot of people there. Usually it was busy with children and families.

This was a downed tree in the Tuilleries.
Taken on another very cold day.
I liked the sculptural look of the roots.

***According to Peter, who knows so much about Paris: Peter said...
Actually this IS a sculpture! :-) (By Guiseppe Penone.)" I wish he'd been with me when I photographed it. Sure looked like a tree to me but I should have known that they wouldn't leave a tree like that just lay around and disturb the perfection of the Tuilleries.:=]

The Blue Doors of Paris

Blue seems to be a favorite color for doors in Paris. Here are just a few that I found.

More Paris Nights

City Daily Photo does Theme Day on the first of the month and the theme for August is "Night". This isn't a CDP blog but my other one is and it's a good excuse to post more of my photos from Paris. These were taken in December around Christmas so the lights were rather festive.


The beautiful Grand Opera House surrounded by traffic.


Magazine kiosk and the metro in front of the Comédie Francaise.


The Hotel Ritz, 15 place Vendôme, 1st.
