Home Away From Home (Weekend Reflections # 278)

Paris, France                           Galerie de Montpensier      

Maybe it's not one of my best reflections, but it sure brings back good memories for me. This shot was taken from inside of the apartment where my wife and I have stayed the most during our trips to Paris. Including or first and our most recent trip.
The reflections are on the door and on a glass coffee table that I pushed into the doorway.  Why do I like staying here? Well, I love le jardin du Palais-Royal, and as you can see, I only need to open the door to be there.

Have a great weekend!

C'est un reflet que tu as en quelque sorte fabriqué , alors !

Je vais aussi toujours dans le même hotel à Londres , ça permet d'anticiper le plaisir , et aussi d'avoir cette sensation de "foyer loin du foyer" ..
Bon week-end !

Dreamy! The reflections and the locale!!

Alexa said...

You deserve points for actually moving furniture for this one! And how fantastic to stay in a place right on the Palais Royal garden. [un grand soupir]

Not one of your best? I think the reflection of the frame on the left in the table top is pretty spectacular.

Melissa said...

Recording good memories makes for the best of photos. I somehow couldn't see the glass at first and thought the corridor was flooded! I guess because I take so many water reflections.

That's a beautiful place. And the reflection is as beautiful.

I have to disagree, James, this is fabulous! of course, ...how could you miss since it's Parisian?

Fun60 said...

Your reflections are always so clever. A double reflection adds so much more interest to the composition.

Andrea Priebe said...

It actually is a very nice reflection and view, James, but I have to say that the center of attention for me was the little dog lifting his leg on the tree ... Now, that is what I call good timing :) I don't blame you for loving to stay in this place in Paris :)

Hi James,
With Gelato on minds, it is hard to think of other things, at least for me :)
The reflections are very nice and you have done a lovely job of the capture.
Have a Great Weekend!
Peace :)
