As I was going to be in Paris with my cousins and French Husband I asked you if there was anything you would like to see, sort of like a "Paris Postcard" that I could take for you. The list is amazing, and a challenge as well. Paris is picture post card perfect at the moment. May is a beautiful month to visit Paris... everything is blooming!
Yesterday when we arrived I told my cousins and French Husband that while we were out and about in Paris we were on a mission to find certain photo opts for Tongue in Cheek Readers.
Here is what we found so far for those of you who asked: (if you want a post card tell me what you want to see in the comment section. i will try to find a postcard to match your request.)
Paris Postcard for Allison Whittington who wanted to see:
A big dog outside a French cafe.
Paris Postcard for Shelley@whiteshed who wanted to see:
A young couple in love.
Flowers, for my niece Maria the birthday girl!
Jody, who wanted me to relay a message to the carousel vendor across from the Eiffel Tower, though since we were driving by I will have to do so in the days to come. Instead here is a glimpse of the top of the carousal.
Paris Postcard for Laurie who wanted to see:
The number 14.
I must admit that my cousin Gene was on the look out for the number 14... I told him it had to be pretty... he gave up after I rejected several of his attempts...this is his best shot... hopefully tomorrow we will find a better one!
Paris Postcard for Michelle who wrote,
"Can you get a picture of a couple completely in love and oblivious to their beautiful surroundings?? "
I took this with a zoom lens through the bus' window.
We took a drink, and French Husband said, "Aren't you going to take a photo of the waiters and glasses?"
So I did.
Paris Postcard for Judy O.,
Who wanted to see trees blooming. Oh how they are blooming!
Above the main door of Notre Dame. Carved stone statue of Mary and child.
For my Mother on Mother's day tomorrow.
Paris Postcard for Amy Korteum:
Soon after we arrived in Paris we went to Mass at Notre Dame. The incense rose from the giant golden incense burner... I did not dare to take a photo... instead after Mass and before the doors closed I took one photo of Notre Dame empty.... except for light.
A walk in the park.
Paris Postcard for Life on the Cut Off, who asked to see flowers,

Simply Springtime in Paris.
We are out and about. I will try to find the other Postcards of Paris that you have requested and if you have something you want to see please note it in the comment section.
Paris Postcard for Julie M. who asked to see ...
The bird feeder man, I know you asked for the one at the Palais Royal, but I saw this man feeding the birds next to Notre Dame and thought you might like it too.
Paris Postcard for Chris Whittman who asked to see...
An old time Paris cafe scene... the French waiter standing by the red cafe chair.
Thanks for giving me your ideas as another way to look at Paris.
