Home Away From Home (Weekend Reflections # 278)

Paris, France                           Galerie de Montpensier      

Maybe it's not one of my best reflections, but it sure brings back good memories for me. This shot was taken from inside of the apartment where my wife and I have stayed the most during our trips to Paris. Including or first and our most recent trip.
The reflections are on the door and on a glass coffee table that I pushed into the doorway.  Why do I like staying here? Well, I love le jardin du Palais-Royal, and as you can see, I only need to open the door to be there.

Have a great weekend!

Model and "mini-model" (Weekend Reflections # 276)

Versailles, France

I thought about posting a somber black and white reflection of Paris but I decided against it.  

I feel a real connection with France and especially Paris. The horrible acts of terrorism this week made me sad and angry. I hope strong measures are taken to insure the safety and freedom of French citizens as this cultural war continues.
Aux armes, citoyens!



As I mentioned last week, I was caught in the act photographing a reflection. This is an advertisement and its reflection is in the corner of a bus shelter. I like how the bright lights and colors seem to jump out of the darkness.

This is from Cielquimper's December 10th blog post:  "The (same as usual) lights on rue de la Paroisse and the silhouette of James the photographer taking what will hopefully be a cool reflection photo!"
