Autumn in Paris

Two days ago, I was moaning about the
end of a beautiful summer.  Well, now that
fall is officially here, I think maybe I
should just enjoy it!  (Wouldn't be too hard
to do in this particular place, would it?)

Bright and Beautiful

I grew up with the unenlightened notion that
pink and orange don't go together. Whoever decided
that had obviously never been in a garden!

Shadow Shot Sunday

Summer will be officially over in two days (sigh).
It's been a really good one weather-wise 
(a pleasant surprise given the horrendous winter
that preceded it).  I miss it already!

The Weekend in Black and White

I was on a train, speeding up the Northeast Corridor
(between Washington, D.C. and New York City).
Fortunately, I had my camera in my hand when we
passed by this photogenic—I think—power grid.

Kick up your (5-inch) heels!

Passed by Saks Fifth Avenue on my way to work
last month, and every window was devoted
to that guy who makes those shoes that I can
neither afford nor wear.  Oh well.

Thursday Challenge—"blue"

Paris—somewhere in the Marais: a very
blue door (the color un-fooled-around-with,
I swear!).  Who knows?  Maybe I'll pass
by this very doorway today.

ABC Wednesday—J is for "jawbreakers"

I loved these when I was a kid—
back when I wasn't afraid of breaking
my teeth (or of what all that sugar
would do to them) and didn't think about
what nasty chemicals might possibly be used
to create those neon-bright colors!
