April in Paris




April suits well to Paris (is it completely crazy to say this in English?).

I enjoy spring so much this year! Allergies haven't even begun yet... I shouldn't say that, I will probably start sneezing and crying tomorrow!

Jazz has always been a very happy music for me. I had to share this one today, even if it's kind of obvious.
Don't you wish you could have been to a concert of Ella Fitzgerald or Sarah Vaughan?

No corner views for me today, I haven't met any vending machines on my way to work this morning.

Thank you dear Isabelle for this moment of beauty! Ella is great and she goes along well with your photos:) Happy spring day! Take care with the allergies, I have the same problem and it's not funny at all...But today we don't care!

Oh beautiful city. the loveliest on earth - my favorite.

Heureusement que tu es là pour me faire voir le printemps à Paris... Parfois, on passe à côté des jolies choses ! Et la balade est bien plus belle sans les vilains distributeurs !

I spent some days in Paris last year, with a few girlfriends. We were so excited to be on a girls only trip without children and husbands, that we spent the whole time sitting in cafes drinking white wine and smoking cigarettes.

I love Paris, day or night, winter or spring. It's my favorite place to live.

kenza said...

Magnifique! je t'envoie un petit mot très bientôt. grosses bises, kenza.

kenza said...

One more thing. I went to a Sarah Vaughan concert at Carnegie Hall (NY) just after they renovated it in Feb 1990 and about two weeks before she died. Amazing! and I knew it was a real privilege.

PROVINS said...

Listening right now :-) lovely!

Marion said...

Elisabelle !
Je t'ai mailé ! Je peux pas demain !!!

Hannah Sadie said...

Oh gosh, that first photo took my breath away. And I love Ella's April in Paris, she's perfect.

jeanine said...

Theresa said...

These photos are wonderful. Check out my husband's original jazz song:

nathalie et cetera said...

april in Paris makes april in Montreal look blah.

Anne said...

Oh, your photos bring back such memories. I spent an April in Paris (and then a May, and then a June) a few years ago, and it was a magical month, vraiment magnifique.

marie said...

"kind of obvious", mais bon, c'est de toute beauté, tout simplement.

Valerie said...

tes photos sont magnifiques ! j'ai beaucoup de plaisir à découvrir ton p'tit coin virtuel... parisien apparemment (?) me faire aimer Paris est bien difficile, mais je dois avouer que tu y réussis le temps de ma visite ici !
et ps : nous pas de sud-ouest je suis en Bretagne ;)
