« Courtyard Week 2: 9 Place des Vosges | Main | Champions by Jonathan Freedman »

January 14, 2010



How many times have I visited the Place des Voges, truly one of my most favorite spots in all of Paris and never seen this courtyard w/statues, etc.

Merci mille fois, cher Richard!


This was a great series!!


Hello Richard, thank you for sharing your wonderful courtyard with us. A beautiful view to ponder with your thoughts.


Another charming courtyard. Let's the stalking begin :)


A world of courtyards that we never see as tourists...thanks for exposing them.


Richard - You are a ROCK STAR GOD to me!!! Je vous adore!! What a slice of heaven you have right outside your window. Even Mr. C would be jealous.


I really love your exquisite courtyard...the dolphin fountain, the Rose of Sharon flowering bush, the hydrangea's, the palm tree in the snow, the cream brick wall, etc. You must really be inspired when you look out on that serene garden.

Your fan, Sharon


Ma cher Georges oooops I mean ..... Dear Richard

It even sounds different doesn't it? I am pleased that I can drop you a line when I feel like it but I am sure I would not have that liberty if you were George/s.

Thank you so much for these great images ..... I am over the moon with this series. I hope you have had lots of fun poking around taking the photos. They are such a delight to look at. For me they really are Paris. Oh I am so envious of you living there!


I've loved this series. It could be a book! Someone did do one on hidden Paris, but a book just on courtyards would be formidable. I'd collaborate with you in a heartbeat.


Ok, if I stalk you will you respond..................................................and slap the camera out of my hand?? Ton apartement donne sur une tres belle jardin!


you are so cute...! love the hydrangeas..


So pretty - love the snow all over the leaves :-)


I had to tell you, it is beautiful, your courtyard! So you must be beautiful too,like George Clooney!


Richard - you are too modest! You have a gorgeous courtyard and one of the best you've included in your blogs! I've really enjoyed your courtyard series - tres magnifique!


How I love the inner courtyards in Paris...and throughout Europe!

Last blogs have been among my favorites!!!
