The Armchair Parisienne is BJ’s Parisian Photo blog.
I first became attracted to this blog when I tripped over the wonderfully fantastic post…
This, I found, was just one of many, many fantastic posts!
Such as The One I Left Behind which is about cutlery, of all things, and I’m glad I’m not the only one to wonder about the lack of knives.
Before I get on with reviewing the blog I’d just like to say… “May I share a story?”
Wonderful isn’t it?
I bet we’ve all got stories like that but are often too embarrassed to tell them?
Paris just wouldn’t be Paris is you couldn’t find somewhere sit sit and watch the world go by…
But Some Days…. all you can do is dream.
And in Paris it doesn’t seem to matter if you are Dining Solo.
And what’s the first thing you do upon arrival in Pais after dropping bags at the hotel. Find a dreamy cup of Café Crème?
And doesn’t that glass of champagne and those olives look nice? I think it should be Christmas in July all year round!
Culture and things like that….
We could go Gallery Window Shopping if you are not put off by images of Bone Sculpture!
Or perhaps a quick visit to Musée d’Orsay which has to be the best former Train Station ever!
Then again, there’s always the Galerie Vivienne; even if most of the shops are closed.
The Paris bits….
Even a gray day is an opportunity to take some lovely photos.
And if exercising statues are your think there are some Permanent Fixtures to satisfy your caprices!
Of course, no Paris photoblog would be complete without a trip to Montmarte Cemetery; with a couple of cemetery cats as well.
Hey, in Paris, even Iron Work and Buildings can be interesting!
I imagine that Paris is a great town to have a few Kodak Moments?
A short train ride from Gare Montparnasse, the Chartres Cathedral is well worth the journey.
And there’s really no excuse not to spend A Sunday Morning at Notre Dame is there?
If you are lucky you might be able to attend a Gregorian Chant mass there.
A great experience – even for lapsed catholics!
And, located well outside the Boulevard Pèriphèrique, the St-Denis Cathedral is also worth a visit.
Not just once but twice…
And even a third time too!
A Different Perspective on Paris is to be had if you try some panoramic photos.
Wouldn’t the one of Père Lachaise make a great blog header?
And, as we all know, Paris is… for the birds?
I want these two at the bottom!
I NEED these two at the bottom!
I wonder if I could persuade any of those naughty Paris bloggers (take a look at the Paris section of the sidebar here – take your pick – most of them seem fairly naughty!) to steal them for me? Karin? Leesa? LA Mom?
So, summing up…..
The Armchair Parisian is a lovely photoblog which will entrance and seduce anyone who loves Paris.
The author obviously works hard to get the perfect photos as A View from the top shows.
I wonder how many steps she had to huff and puff up just so she could photograph the most photographed gargoyle in the world?
So, don’t hang around… come and visit The Armchair Parisian and tell all your friends.
Care to join me?
All the best
