City of Lights

Paris is many things, rather famously she is the City of Light. And her lights are beautiful. Not just the beacon of light that shines from the Eiffel Tower, or the lights that light her stunning bridges. Her ceiling lights can sneak up and delight you at any time.

Somewhat accidentally shopping for perfume at Lalique
Carousel du Louvre

Walking through a mall
Porte de Versailles

Randomly stopping at a cafe for lunch

Deciding to seek refuge from a sudden downpour
Le Paradis du Fruit

Walking by a shop

Or enjoying the magnificent breakfast at Le Meurice
The only meal we can afford there…

Gorgeous - I need to look up (generally from cake) more often!

I don't think they even make chandeliers like those anymore. Thanks for sharing them, Louise. Have a great day!

These are wonderful!
I'm guilty of looking too long in my hot chocolate cup ;(

These are fabulous :) The second one from Lalique is particularly beautiful

I have seen some great ceiling lights on my travels but not as many in one place like you have. I will have to pay more attention in future as I could be missing out.

Great idea for a post. Wonder if I have any great lights-o-Paris photos among my hundreds of shot....

The one in the café is gorgeous. They all are but I really liked that one.

Beautiful photos of some lovely chandeliers. I'm dreaming of going to Paris! You've inspired me to pay more attention to what's overhead when I'm out and about.

Paris is inexhaustible, isn't it? Thanks for these from the City of Light.

What a wonderful post. Seeing Paris in a different way altogether and I love it.

Joy said...

Beautiful! What a great theme for a post. I'll be paying much more attention to lights when I got to Paris next, whenever that is.
