On The Way Home

A look at one of the wings of the Louvre Museum at night. I don’t see this very often as I am almost always at home once the sun sets.

The entrance to the Cafe Marly attached to the Louvre. I’ve eaten here and it was very good.

As I was headed to the metro, I turned around and got this view of the pyramid. It’s hard to get a photo without a crowd of people in it around here and I almost managed none but someone walked across just as I took the photo.

Finally on the street back to our apartment with a little cafe lit up and the autumn leaves golden in the light. As you can see, it had been raining.

Night Shots

I am seldom out at night, especially in the summer when it gets dark so late but the other day I met a friend for a drink late enough that the sun had set and the lights of places came on. The always look better to me when they are lit up.

Seen one evening not too far from our place as I walked with Maurice.

Night

The other evening we joined some friends at a restaurant that had a charming interior but the food was very disappointing. I hate when that happens. It even had good reviews on Trip Advisor. Go figure. (le Gorille Blanc, if you want the name.)

See? Isn’t that pretty?

A very inviting ambience.

Isn’t this window selling kids clothing cute? It was in the Marais close to where we ate.
