Jardin du Luxembourg in the Autumn

I was in the Latin Quarter this afternoon and passed a strange looking aluminum sculpture in front of La Sorbonne which served as a climbing frame for kids and adults. To add to the surrealism a bleached haired, leather clad 6ft 6 couple (they were identical heights, male and female) walked past getting strange looks by everyone – perhaps German nihilists?

Unfortunately with the bleak grey sky I didn’t bother bringing my camera which was a shame, but had this inexpensive point and click. By the time I reached Jardin du Luxembourg, the sun was low in the sky and haze gave the park a magical glow. Paris is a beautiful place in such moments. I include a few photographs below taken today.

Hi ! Your blog and website is very attractive. I like the photos you make. I have also a blog about parisian photos : one news photo every day. My blog is more about architecture because i’m not such a good photographer as you. 🙂

Hallo from Germany,

nach über 10 Jahren war ich wieder in Paris. Ach wie habe ich diese Stadt vermisst!!!
Der “Jardin du Luxembourg” gehört neben “Place des Vosges” zu meinen Lieblingsorten.

Gruss aus Mannheim
