Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background on Montmartre

Here’s a photo from our trip to Paris. We’d climbed up the famous hill to Sacre Cour on a holiday (silly us) and after visiting the church, we wandered through the commercial district of Montmartre. You remember, that famous area where Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Pablo Picasso, et. all, lived at one time or another. The Moulin Rouge sits just down the hill.

I took a shot of this bakery, La Galette des Moulins, because it’s said Gertrude Stein shopped there. I took several shots, but this is my favorite. You can see the bread lined up on the window and a window reflection of a lovely red restaurant with a row of shining lamps. And in the bottom corner, just behind the bread, there’s a reflection of my husband Cliff, watching me as I take the photo.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

Small town Kansas, pretty much every day of the week. This particular hitching rail and saloon is in Summerfield, Kansas where I happened to go to high school. Which may explain my love of cities!
