Taking it Slow in Paris

When I go back to Paris I'll try to get a better shot of this place but for now here's a giant snail and it's reflection. I think the little sign that says 1832 stands for the year this restaurant opened for business. That's a lot of escargot!

  9. You've a good eye and a lovely sepia photo too - very appropriate for the vintage shop you were photographing.

  13. Two escargot for the price of one :) Love it my friend. Something you don't see everyday. I hope you are well. You have been unusually quiet but I know that there is life outside of blogging. :) Have a great weekend :)

  14. Well caught. You know what, the only thing I like in snails is the garlic butter!

  16. I like escargot and I did have some in Paris. But the very tastiest was at a restaurant in Las Vegas.

  17. Lots of escargot indeed! Almost two centuries worth!

    We call them kuhol and I still can't eat 'em. ;)

    Love the snail and the details of the metal awning.

  18. Your snail and reflection reminds me how I once over-dosed on escargot and snails... but I forgive you. Nice shot!

  19. The snail is pretty cool. I like the universal pizza sign underneath.

  24. «Louis» missed this place, though he knew of it, when he lived in Paris. Interesting contrast between the old sign of L'Escargot and the Pizza sign in the right background.
