I have a thing for Parisian geranium boxes.
I was in the upscale 16th Arr. the other day, which was like a ghost town because all the residents are on vacances. It was a great opportunity to roam the streets and take photos of the La Belle Époque style apartment buildings, rich with ornate architectural details. The terraces of the buildings flowed with an over abundance of the purest white, the rosiest pink, and cartoon red geraniums. The dates of when the buildings were built, between the 1890’s and the early 1900’s, are subtly etched on the façade. Most of the photos were taken on Ave. Victor Hugo and its side streets, between Place Victor Hugo and the Arc de Triomphe.
Some great examples of the period iron work
I am pleased as punch to announce the launch of Eye Prefer Paris Tours, which are 3-hour walking tours I will personally be leading. The Eye Prefer Paris Tour
includes many of the places I have written about such as small museums & galleries, restaurants, cafes & food markets, secret addresses, fashion & home boutiques, parks, and much more.
I look forward to meeting you on my tours and it will be my pleasure and delight to show you my insiders Paris.
