Delyan

The salon de thé "Delyan" is a good place to recover from a shopping expedition on Rue de Rivoli. If you sit outside you can also enjoy a beutiful view of the Saint-Jacques Tower.

Sunglasses, Hats, Jewelry

I love this decoration of a shop under the arcades of Place des Vosges. I took this photo in April 2007, so I don´t know if this shop still exists...

Le Repos Hivernal

Parisians love to sit/lie down on the grass, but the grass also needs a period to recover...

Enjoying the sun

A sunny afternoon on Place des Vosges in April 2007... Parisians love to chat with friends, picnick, read a book or simply hang loose on the grass , and this place isn´t bad at all for doing all of that...

Flower Market

The Flower Market on Place Louis Lépine on the Île de la Cité exists since 1808 and is the oldest market of its kind in Paris. On Sundays the flowers are replaced with the caged bird market.
