After two days of that trademark Paris low hanging gloom, just short of real fog, and well on its way to being frozen fog – a kind of weather, that for some reason, I love – today was brilliant blue.
So I took some pictures.
I always take pictures.
Today I took my little camera because I was going to Luxembourg Gardens, the day was brilliantly bright, my little camera has a 720 mm optical zoom that, when it is brilliantly bright, yields some spectacular results, and I wanted to see if the longer zoom and bright day could get me some great parrot pictures.
The parrots didn’t co-operate.
I heard a few, but they were few, and they were elusive.
But the Gardens always have some interesting stuff going on, so I got a few interesting images.
And later on, with a magic setting I discovered by accident several years ago, I got a couple nice post sunset scenes coming back from le Depart.
They look almost like shaggy manes
I guess this is what they look like when they get older; I can empathize with that.
How many seas can a white dove sail?
