I read the book with great awe and would NEVER have thought to feed my curious mind with pictures of the house where Sarah.... (well, I won't tell the story!) !!!! You DO have a nerve, Richard, to enter private grounds like you do...! But thanks to your quick footed dash we know so much more now. Thank you; this is probably your most fantastic post so far. Bonne semaine :)

Beautiful courtyard and buildings now, and what must Paris have been like when it was built? Can't remember, was this the location used in the film or the address in the book? Doesn't really matter, keep on being bold.


I've stood outside that door, but no one opened if for me! Lucky, lucky you! It's time I may linger just a litle longer!


This is a marvelous capture of the feeling of a courtyard that you have shared with your fans. Thank you so much. I know that sprint well...trying to look dignified and casual and being a Peeping Tom at the same time! I've been lucky to have been invited in by a person who belongs there on several occasions, but haven't tried to photograph of of them. Excellent! Hooray for you!
