Left Bank

The Left Bank of Paris is one of the most picturesque areas of Paris. Here are just a few of the photos I took there.

Pretty handles on doors.

Old carved signs. This one had the St (saint) crossed out during the Revolution when they were against anything having to do with religion, not to mention royalty. The “des” looks homemade too. Don’t know what that was about.

The chestnuts trees are blooming in front of St Sulpice church.

This is my favorite courtyard where I always wish for an apartment. It is off of the Cour St Andre des Arts. I went in to see if the wysteria was blooming but it looked very puny. It was cut back a few years ago and just never really recovered.

The entry into another section of the courtyard.

An old shutter there with a vine gracefully flowering over it.
