Place des Vosges is one of Paris most beautiful squares by far. Last year it was part of my running and walking path, so I was able to see it in the quiet of the morning when few people where there. I’m not sure I ever had those quiet mornings with my proper camera in tow, but I always was drawn to shoot a few here and there with my phone camera.
When I visited Place des Vosges this Spring, I have to say I was a bit disappointed there was so little color when the rest of Paris is bursting with color and fresh blooming flowers. Still, the lush green and the beautiful lines of the façades make for beautiful images that are a good reminder of me to return here for more quiet moments.
Many thanks to the Dutch students who had just parked all these pretty bikes before they paused in the Place for their picnic.
