Au revoir, Paris! Late afternoon on a soft grey Paris day. This is the last of my "Postcards from Paris" for a while. Spring flowers are blooming all around me here in Northern California, so I'll be posting those next.

Ma derniere 'carte postale' de Paris pour le moment. Le printemps tout fleuri arrive chez moi en Californie du nord....alors je vais partager mes photos faites dernierement de callas, rhododendrons, et cerisiers. A demain!

Just pure Haussman Paris......and one of her most beloved cafes made famous by the artists of Montparnasse who, in the early 1900's, were to create the movement we now call Modern Art.

Here are several other photos of this beautiful building:

In the neighborhood of the historic Montparnasse cafes (Le Dome, Le Select, La Rotonde, La Coupole) Le Dome rises like a flamboyant ship's prow on a corner lot. This is a detail of this beautiful building. These cafes played an important role as a gathering place during the international modern art movement of the post WWI era.

What was Montparnasse about in the early 1900's?

Walking in the neighborhood of the historic Montparnasse cafes (Le Dome, Le Select, La Rotonde, La Coupole) I was looking for certain artists' studios that I had located through my prior art history research. These cafes played an important role as a gathering place during the international modern art movement of the post WWI era. While exploring, I came across this inviting touch of Spring.

Couldn't believe my eyes when I walked out of the dimly lit beauty of Notre Dame after going to listen to the soprano singing vespers, and into the evening with its soft rain showers. What a wonderful surprise to be greeted by this illuminated sky full of rich color! A glorious sunset was illuminating the facade of Notre Dame, and people with their umbrellas added a celebratory note.

Lorsque je sortais - apres vepres - des tenebres de Notre Dame, je me suis trouvee devant ce tableau presque invraisembable. Il avait plu, et le coucher du soleil rayonnait une lumiere rosatre et doree. Quelle belle surprise inattendue!

Unique in all the world. The Paris skyline, from the little red chimneys in the Marais, to the Grand Lady herself in the distance.
