Workin' on the railroad

On any given weekend, some NYC subway
line is under repair or maintenance.
That's a good thing, of course, unless it's your
station they're working in—and you
actually need to get somewhere.

Today's Flowers

This is one (and surely not the last) of the
many, many pictures I took in Monsieur Monet's
gorgeous gardens in Giverny.  They're a riot of color,
form, and fragrance—the place to go for the
best kind of sensory overload ever!

Shapes and Shadows

Vases on display at 
Baldwin-Guggisberg, one of the
beautiful shops along the Viaduc des Arts,
in Paris's 12th arrondissement—not exactly
central, but well worth the detour (for the shops
and the Promenade Plantée above them).

Midnight in Paris

This was taken from the Pont St. Louis.
That's the Hotel de Ville on the
right, the Tour St. Jacques on the left.

Thursday Challenge—"mood"

And the mood is good!

This is the finale of Fuerza Bruta, which
I've featured before, here and here.
The guy in the white shirt enticed audience
members out into the middle of the floor—and
whether these folks knew what was coming or not,
they all seemed to enjoy the shower.

ABC Wednesday—C is for "ceiling"

(and chandelier too)

Last week, my photo for the letter B was taken at the
Hungarian State Opera House, in Budapest.
This one
was too—of what you see when you look up.

Paris Plage

This shot was taken well after the sun
had set (which is at about 10:30 at night—so
not a lot of little kids up and enjoying
Paris Plage at that hour) . . .

but still quite a few (mainly young)

people making the most of this
temporary beach set up by the city,
this year along the quais on the Right Bank
west of the Marais and east of the Louvre.
