Welcome to the adventures of little Alexandre Legris and his train Monsieur Charbon. Mr Charbon is fueled by imagination and Alexandre has lots of it. Today they're probably off to solve a mystery of some sort.
Paris, France (Passage Beaujolais) This passage links rue de Richelieu to rue de Montpensier
Walk through this passage, make a quick right then walk a few hundred feet and voila on the left side is the apartment where Vicki and I stay while we are in Paris. I walk through this passage to my favorite patisserie every morning while we're here except for Sundays when the passage gates open late. When I first saw this photo I was a little disappointed that the name of the restaurant was obscured by the bright light but when I looked closer I noticed that the restaurant's name starts above it's door and is completed in the reflection on the left side. It's named "Alfred"
These are two crops of the same picture. I arrived on the beach this evening just in time to take a few shots of this amazing sunset. The sea spray and wet sand reflected the sun and made everything look bright orange. To me me it kind of looks like the people are performing a strange sun worshiping dance. :)
