Paris Sous la Neige: The 1st Arrondissement

 

“Paris is the city in which one loves to live. Sometimes I think this is because it is the only city in the world where you can step out of a railway station – the Gare D’Orsay – and see, simultaneously, the chief enchantments: the Seine with its bridges and bookstalls, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Tuileries Gardens, the Place de la Concorde, the beginning of the Champs Elysees – nearly everything except the Luxembourg Gardens and the Palais Royal.

Paris Sous la Neige: The 18th Arrondissement

 

“She tells her love while half asleep,
In the dark hours,
With half-words whispered low:
As Earth stirs in her winter sleep
And puts out grass and flowers
Despite the snow,
Despite the falling snow.”

– Robert Graves, Complete Poems in One Volume.

Winter in Paris: Tour Eiffel, The Marais & Église Saint Vincent de Paul

 

“There is but one Paris and however hard living may be here, and if it becomes worse and harder even – the French air clears up the brain and does good – a world of good.” – Vincent Van Gogh.

“I don’t get here often enough, that’s the problem. Can you picture how drop dead gorgeous this city is in the rain? Imagine this town in the ’20s. Paris in the ’20s, in the rain. The artists and writers!” – Owen Wilson, Midnight in Paris.
