Palais Royal & Louvre Photos-Series 1

It was a rare, clear and sunny day on Sunday, and while I was at the Palais Royal preparing for my Facebook Live Emily in Paris event this Wednesday, the late afternoon sun, light, and shadows was glorious. I hadn’t been taking much in the way of photos since Christmas, so it felt good to finally give my camera a workout. After I left the Palais Royal, I walked down rue de Rivoli facing the Louvre and there were some interesting reflections in the windows. I walked further down heading toward...

Leap of faith for historic home in France

To renovate her parents’ home, one French designer insisted they throw everything out and start from scratchAfter graduating from architecture school, Marine Bonnefoy decided it was time to get her hands dirty. “My studies were very intellectually oriented and had no link to actual construction,” she recalls. “By the end of them, I hadn’t even been taught what holds a wall up.” To find out, she decided to spend a year working for a building firm. “I demolished facades with a pneumatic drill, lea...

Have a ball

These two fountains, les fontaines de Pol Bury, were installed in the Cour d'Orléans of the Palais Royal in the center of Paris back in 1985. They didn't exist when I lived in Paris a few years earlier. The first time I was back in Paris was 1988, and there they were. The building itself was also renovated and its façade cleaned since then. Pol Bury was a Belgian artist. He died in 2005. Back then I was just getting started with SLR photography and was into taking color slides. This image is s...

Palais Royal

I go here a lot but, what the heck, I was in the area. These striped columns are art but, as you can see, are enjoyed by everyone. Very regal. A French King was raised here once. I like the two fountains there. The mulberry trees there aren’t allowed to do as they wish and grow in any direction. The center pond. When it gets really cold, the water is shut off.

Emily In Paris on Netflix

Vincent and I binge watched the new series, Emily in Paris, on Netflix last Friday.   Emily in Paris, written and created by Darren Star, who also created Sex and the City, tells the tale of Emily Cooper, a wide-eyed, American millennial, who is a junior assistant at a Chicago based marketing company, who is suddenly whisked to Paris to work at an upscale, luxury marketing company. Emily arrives in Paris without knowing anyone or a word of French and moves into a chamber de bonne on the f...

Past

More photos from the archives. I should be back in Paris this Sunday. No explanation for this guy. I saw him once on a metro with a giant pacifier. The entry into the garden room at the Andre Jacquemart Museum. A group of cute girls. A corner in the Galerie Vivienne. These pigs have been in the window of this bookstore for years.

More

More Paris photos while I’m in Arizona with my mother. An iconic Parisian metro entrance. The well kept Palais Royal. An old French kitchen in a chateau. A lovely corner. Another sign that I like-elegant.

Best of Eye Prefer Paris: Everything’s Coming Up Roses in Paris

If it seems I am posting beaucoup garden photos lately it’s because I can’t get enough of Paris in the springtime. It’s now the season of the roses and I’ve been chasing their bursting blooms all over town. There’s a hidden gem of a rose garden in the Marais, which I always go to this time of the year to literally smell the roses. They didn’t disappoint this season with their perfume tingling my nostrils. I got word yesterday of a special rose show in the gardens of the Palais Royal and...

Place des Vosges Bench Photos Caption Contest

Last week all the parks and gardens were reopened since being on lockdown since March. Once again Parisians were treating their parks like an extended urban backyard. What a difference a week makes; The week before I walked to the almost deserted Place des Vosges and the center park was literally under lockdown, an eerie sight, devoid of human life.   The following week the park was packed with kids playing in the playground, infants and toddlers shoveling sand into their plastic buckets ...

Going Home

I put this post together back in February. What a long time that seems to be now. We are still hunkered down in our apartment where the bright spot of our day is at 8 PM when we join others at our window and cheer for the helpers still at the front lines doing their job. When this first started it was still dark but now with the time change and the move towards Summer, it is still light out. Seen at the end of my day. The covered arcades of the Palais Royal. The tulip trees in the...

Around Paris

A mix of photos taken around Paris, as usual. I saw this fitting sunset the morning I found out a friend of mine died back in the States. A side entrance for employees into the Louvre Museum. A fountain in the Palais Royal. The water doesn’t run in the winter. A side entrance into the garden. Outdoor art installation. Spring is here! As are many in the world, we are practicing isolation. They will now give you a ticket if you are outside unless you h...

Magnolia Blooms in Palais Royal Gardens

Since we are all feeling the affects of the Coronavirus, no matter where we live, I am writing this special post. Almost all of us are in lockdowns in the U.S. A. and in France and most of Europe, forced to nesting at home. It’s a delicate and difficult time, so please hang in there. Also many of you had travel plans to come to Paris and had to either postpone or cancel your trip, which was also disappointing to me, as I won't get to see some of my friends and meet my newest clients. Until th...

Art

I’m not a huge fan of modern art but I try to have an open mind when I see it and found, at an exhibition at the Maillol Museum here in Paris, that I liked and appreciated a lot of it. The exhibition there was about what they call Naive art, that done by mostly untrained artists who loved to paint and were full of enthusiasm in doing it. They were mocked in exhibitions but were slowly accepted. Rousseau, discovered by Picasso, is probably the most well known with his jungle scenes even tho...

How to Plan a Day Trip from London to Paris by Train

A day trip to Paris from London is the perfect addition to a trip to England! Thanks to the fast and efficient Eurostar train, it’s never been easier to visit Paris for a day. Honestly, one day isn’t enough for Paris — ideally, you should spend as much time there as you can. But not everyone has lots of extra time to spend. So is it worth it if you only have one day to spare? Absolutely — taking the train from London to Paris is always worth it. Even if all you have is one day, you can still m...

Palais Royal

I love visiting Palais Royal. It is such a beautiful place. Like these gorgeous columns. I’ve always liked this fountain too. There are two of them. Trees trimmed with precision. Happy sun worshipers. The last of the flowers. It was such a lovely day when I was there.

Friends

It’s the 25th anniversary of the famous American TV show, Friends, and the couch from the many scenes set at a coffee shop, Central Perk, is on a tour. It sounded so unusual that I headed out to Palais Royal for a look. Palais Royal looking great as always. There it is. I couldn’t get a clear unobstructed view of it. You could get your photo taken on it. I don’t know what the photos cost. Even umbrellas like the show used in the opening credits. As you can see, t...

Magnolia Blooms Palais Royal

Late last Saturday morning after relaxing with a café noisette at my favorite Paris café, Les Nemours (a blog about that soon), I strolled into Palais Royal to see if I could find something new to photograph.   It’s funny how things in nature happen so quickly; Just a few days earlier I passed through the Palais Royal and all the trees were bare, nary a bloom. But suddenly out of nowhere, Mother Nature waved her magic wand and had the magnolia trees burst into bloom. Most were in that perfe...

Ship bows

A new visit to the “Palais Royal” …, but first something about the address of my blog.  I’m back to my original blogspot address. Some bad experience about a “lost blog” (for a couple of days) a few years ago made me consider using a “domain” and I got, via Google, a www-address, which you have to pay for (not much). This has to be renewed on an annual basis. I have paid, but the www-address can’t be reached: "This domain registration expired on 01/31/2019" . I spent a very long mome...

Lack of time...

Lack of time to do what I would call a “real post”, so… The other day I was at the Palais Royal (on which I have posted quite often, see here) and once again I was impressed to see some roses fighting against the cold. A little reminder of my country of birth. [Author: PeterParis]

Palais Royal

One of my favorite places in Paris is the Palais Royal as you would know if you had visited my blog before. I’m always delighted by it.  The sun was just starting to set as we entered as you can see by the lovely sky. I love this fountain, one of two. A look at the straight line of trees there very severely trimmed. The fountain is still running.It is turned off once it starts freezing. The gorgeous facade of the buildings there. One year at Christmas ...

Paris: 5 Affordable restaurants loved by both locals and tourists

Long gourmet lunches, flaky croissants, endless glasses of wine… eating in Paris is a dream come for most visitors. But finding the right places can be frustrating for budget travelers if they’re not careful. Some restaurants are so overrun with tourists that the experience is not fun or the food just isn’t up to par. On the flip side, a fancy Parisian bistro can be a little intimidating for visitors who want a more casual experience or don’t want to spend a few hundred euros. We’ve done the “ha...

At Louis Vuitton, Virgil Abloh Brings Diversity To Paris Fashion Week

Some months ago, the fashion industry saw its two masters of menswear share the spotlight: Kim Jones was leaving Louis Vuitton for Dior Homme, and Virgil Abloh, the Chicagoan who has never worked for a luxury design house, would replace him. While the former has yet to make his debut for the label, the latter, at the Palais Royal in Paris, just made history: as the third Black designer to helm a French maison, Abloh has managed to refresh the beloved menswear arm of the biggest luxury fashion b...
