My Paris Photos (Monica)

Well, I FINALLY uploaded a ton of photos from my recent trip to Paris. I have them sectioned out at this link: http://www.worldisround.com/home/mpileggi/index.html

I didn't annotate each photo, so if you have questions about any of them, please let me know; however, I did write up a short summary for my days.

Thanks for the photos. You arrived in Paris on the 9th, and I left Paris on the 9th. A plaque for Rue Le Pic is in one of your photos. There is (or was) a great little restaurant in San Francisco by that name, although I haven't been there for years. Looks like you had a lovely trip.

grandmere, Yes, I was sure you didn't see all of them. I probably posted close to 500!

Thanks everyone for your compliments. Sandy, there's plenty of photos to start your mornings!

Lovely pictures. I enjoy seeing food pictures. And I especially enjoyed seeing Les Ombres as DH and I have reservations in July.

Monica, I enjoyed your wonderful photos of Paris and Dijon. They brought back lovely memories of my visits there. I also enjoyed reading about the restaurants you visited and have added some of them to my files for my next trip to Paris, although this is just a dream at the moment. Got to be prepared! Thanks so much for sharing!

By the way, what kind of camera did you use?

Rosiegirl, You will love Les Ombres! We did notice that the restaurant does have cheese for dessert. They bring a cart around and you choose what you want.

moolyn, I have a Canon SD550 digital camera. Love it!

Hi Monica, I've just posted a comment on your Dijon page
I really wonder what you had in your plates!!!! (n 461 and 462)
The guy in n 318 is very nice and with Betty1 and her friends last Friday we tasted great tapenades and olives!
On 407 on the right, you can see the entrance of "myhome"
Thank you!

Monica,
Vivres est votre art! Hopefully that translated to food is your art, lol!
Loved the pictures and posted on your site too. We're staying in the Marais...anything specific you can add about the neighborhood?

Monica, I'm so pleased to learn that your photos were taken with a Canon SD camera! I recently bought a Canon SD800 and so far I'm loving it too.

Of course, it's not the camera that takes the photos, it's the photographer, right? You need a good eye as well as a good camera.

Thanks Coco for your comments! Dijon is just lovely and small enough to get around on foot.

Sandra, not much to add to the Marais except there's a lot to see and do and many places to eat! Lots of cafes, bistrots, food shops, wine shops, etc. Don't miss the Carnavalet museum and the Histor of Paris museum. The Bastille has a great market and just wandering in the village St. Paul area is especially nice with the ancient timbered buildings. Don't miss any bakeries, especially "mine" next to where I was staying! Tell Nadia that Monica says hello!

Moolyn, yes, having a good eye is important, but with a digital take extra shots at different angles and one of them will come out great!

Coco, to respond to your photo comments/questions: "I really wonder what you had in your plates!!!! (n 461 and 462). The guy in n 318 is very nice and with Betty1 and her friends last Friday we tasted great tapenades and olives! On 407 on the right, you can see the entrance of "myhome" Thank you! coco"


The food photos:

Photo number 461 from Chez Marianne, (http://www.worldisround.com/articles...9/photo33.html) has fallafel, a large Kefte, hummus, olive tapenade.

Photo 462 (http://www.worldisround.com/articles/329969/photo1.html) has sliced pastrami, feta cheese, grilled eggplant, eggplant caviar. A pickle and olive on both plates.

We had ordered tarama, which the waitress accidently added the eggplant caviar instead. She did bring out the tarama but I didn't photograph it.

We were stuffed after this meal!

Too bad we didn't meet on Fodors before my trip! I would have knocked on your door! http://www.worldisround.com/articles...9/photo29.html


Yes, the guy in photo #318 http://www.worldisround.com/articles...9/photo11.html was very nice. He let us sample some of his olive flavored tapenade! Delicious!
