The Left Bank

I had an unfortunate accident with my computer when it froze and we made the mistake of unplugging it to try and get it going again (we read it on Google). I will never do that again. I went a whole day with the screen black and when I tried to turn it on the next morning it came on but I couldn’t access my usual area. Maurice’s son was able to get most of my computer back to normal although I lost half of the hard drive-but not my photos which I had backed up anyway. Well, it was a scare and I find myself using my IPad more until it all gets worked out. I’ve even been thinking that somewhere down the road that most of us will be using our IPhones exclusively for photos. It’s easier than downloading from a camera. Who knew all of this technology would come into our lives? Anyway, I was in the Left Bank area the other day and went into the Luxembourg Garden to look at there Autumn flowers. They are always great.

The fabulous Medici Fountain there.

There are always big urns full of mums.

The chairs there waiting for Parisians (or tired tourists) to sit in the sun.

This sculpture in front of the St Germain des Pres church caught my eye. I’m not a fan of modern art but I found this to be whimsical.

  1. YIkes. Sounds horrifying. Nothing like computer problems to spread extreme stress…

    I have been using my smartphone (Samsung, not iPhone) as my camera for a few years, but have recently gotten back to using my “real” camera. The pictures are just better, and it really isn’t the same feel.
