Paris Journal - More Photos

What a week!  I'm seeing so many new fun things!

We didn't start every day like this, but on morning we sent my brother, Jack, on a hunting and gathering errand, and this is what he came back with.

This is about the greenest building I have ever seen!  It is another one of those surprises I found while I was lost!  I think it's part of some educational organization.  The entire exterior was covered with plants and they cascaded down from the roof.

I went with my friend, Annie, to check out the Marais, and she found the building where her parents lived back in the 1930's.  She has a chicken thing like I have a cow thing, and this lovely old door to the building court yard might offer some explanation!

The ornate finishes on this lovely old place caught my attention on my way home from the Marais.

Here is Paris' version of affordable housing!  Many people live on boats, which are parked two or three deep along the Seine.

This is a beatuiful sculpture that is perched on the roof of L"Opera.  And I took it on a day that was no longer overcast!

This is the Chat Noir that you find on all of those Montmartre posters!  This little guy actually sat and posed for me!

This is the church of St. Roch.  It's old and beautiful and on the corner of the street where I used to stay when I visited Paris in the 60's and 70's.

This is Saint Joan of Arc, looking awfully young!

More later.  There is a line of family members waiting to check their email, then it's off to more fun!

Patricia, those bring back such fond memories.  I lived in the 16th for 6 years back in the late 90's early 2000's.

Your Paris posts are fun to look at and read. I like the cat. We have a cafe here with a logo much like that cat.

Hi Pat... well this is a first... the scenic pictures actually overshadow the food pic!  Maybe you could bring the Chat Noir home with you as a souvenir for Willie!

What lovely pictures.  SOunds like you're having a grand 'ol time.  And, about that green building, aren't they afraid of termites?  Do termites not exist there?

Wonderful photos, Pat. Paris is truly a magnificent city to walk around in and photograph. Perhaps you should have started a Paris blog.
