The Tuileries, Paris

We were lucky enough to be in Paris and Brussels all last week. The weather was wonderful: slightly cooler than Stuttgart and — my photos below not withstanding — very sunny.

Tuileries fountain, ca. 1900, photochrom via Library of CongressWhile taking pictures at the grand bassin rond in the Tuileries Garden, I remembered this turn-of-the-century photochrom (above) from the Library of Congress.

Last Tuesday, a bit “antiqued.”My slightly “antiqued” version, the first Saturday of September.

There are more photos below — click on any thumbnail in the gallery.

One thought on “The Tuileries, Paris

  1. I wander whether the poor has a land they call their own! depending on such expanse of land you disclosed here, the rich use in the name of tourism.However,you must have enjoyed the grand stay in those cities.
