|A place of worship is almost always a peaceful place. |
This one is the church of St. Paul–St. Louis, in
the Marais. When I last saw it, in 2011, the exterior
was pitch black. It has since been given a
well-deserved cleaning and bright red doors.

|I've done U for "umbrella" before, but this |
is my 7th or 8th ABC/U post, after all.
This was taken last month in Paris, late at
night in an almost empty Place Vendôme.
(Thanks to the lovely Isabelle for
providing the perfect prop for this shot.)

|Passed through Rockefeller Center recently|
on my way to work. These guys were busy setting up
the angels in the Channel Gardens while others were putting
the 30,000 lights and 550-pound Swarovski star on
the tree—which will be lit tomorrow night.
(And I will not be among the anticipated tens of
thousands who will attempt to witness it!)

|In Paris lately, I just couldn't stop myself|
from snapping every vine I saw. This one came
with a little bonus, and I knew I would use it here.

|This (30 euro!) arrangement was for sale at a florist |
on the market street rue Montorgeuil. The strawberries
were an unexpected addition, don't you think?

the 1st of the month, so I've posted to my Paris blog.]

|I found these brides and grooms at a great Paris store |
(one of several on rue Montmartre, near les Halles)
with a good selection of cake pans, candy molds,
and all sorts of baking supplies. I was happy to see
an (almost) all-embracing selection of
wedding-cake toppers—no groom/groom or
bride/bride couples, but who knows? Maybe next
time I'm there I'll see some of those too.

|The sky really was this (non) color for much|
of the time I was in Paris this month.
The good news? That hardly ever meant rain.
