The Weekend in Black and White

There are many, many carrousels (in French, manèges)

to be found all around Paris.  This is one of
the most charming, I think—the dodo manège, with
fanciful creatures to ride (a gorilla, an ostrich, a panda) as 
well as some that are extinct (a dodo, a triceratops)
 It's located near the northeast corner of the Jardin des Plantes.

  1. A tour of Paris via carousels is one of my plans, dear Alexa. This one is so fetching ~ I love it, too. And a beautiful image. Bon weekend et bisous. x0

  2. Très joli manège. C'est assez rare d'en voir avec de tels animaux. Bon week-end.

  3. A very appealing collection of creatures. Lovely photo.

  4. Oh, I just love carousels. Love! Love! Love! And I think there's only 1 here where I live. Nor is it very 'happy'...

  5. never saw a carrousel with such wonderful animals. Love this picture, especially in b&w!

  7. Hard to choose my fav carrousel in Paris but this one is too precious for words.
