Great shots Richard...that last one - with the wrought iron - reminds me of a Picasso face!

Dawn Drake

As always, Richard, your photos are beautiful and capture the essence of not only the stairway (gorgeous) but also the courtyard ivy. Thanks for your insights on Paris! Best, Dawn Drake


Richard....a nice combination of hotel particulier and chateau King, I am assuming Louis XII and it is very common to
Use partial brick and stone as there was a Flemish influence and of course, the countryside influenced the early buildings....also the diamond floor comes out of the Chateaus of Loire valley.........The Renaissance lives on!!!


The last I Perfer Paris was amazing. The pictures of the stairwell were fabulous! Hope things are well in your corner of the world. I miss Paris


Perfect! Perfect! Luscious.


Really nice photos, Richard. Wonderfully composed!


I know that I have shared something like this with you before – your daily emails make my day. I just adore seeing all the wonderful architecture, flowers and other gorgeous things you bring to us.

Your email is like a special gift I get to open each morning.


Makes me want to be in Paris.


What a delight to open today's email from I Prefer Paris and see...lovely photos of our beloved no. 6 rue de Bretonvilliers. Made our day.

my husband and I--are the owners of the apartment Lynn lives in. Love being on your mailing list.


So how do we get an invite to Lynn's??? What a gorgeous place. You photographed those stairs and stairwells beautifully!

I happily rented a studio on the rez de chausée of 6 rue de Bretonvillers a number of times, but the agency that I rented it through, Paris Sleeps, went out of business. Do you by any chance know what rental agency might be listing it now? I loved the apartment. And I agree. Great pictures. Another Virginia
