Soft ragged roses and chandeliers

Things I love most about Paris.
All the tiny outside spaces decorated with simple but beautiful plants and flowers.
Little dog that looked like yoda.
Lunch at Chez Julien.
Soft ragged roses in the courtyard garden at the Musée Cognacq-Jay.
Hot chocolate and chandeliers at Paul bakery.

What pretty postcards you've saved us from Paris. These all look like they belong in a letter box with pretty, droopy writing and sprayed with perfume. Loveliness!

Fantastic to see Paris in early summer.I went in February, lots of grey stone and blue/grey light. Still beautiful - an amazing city.

I have never been to Paris, but I am so scared that if I do I will never wish to return home. These images are so beautiful.

All your photos breathe a special air, but I love the first one the most. Lovely new header too! Oh, by the way, it has the shadow of a Romanian stamp (Posta Romana), right? :D Well, it's from where I live. It gave me a pleasant feeling to see it there.
