red-i-vivus

a prairie barn in a field of wheat??...reflected back onto a Pariscape of monumental edifices...
hard to guess where this mirrored image is located, isn't it?

Could it be Place de Séoul?

Musée de Quai Branly?

as astute as usual, Adam!

David...I am not familiar with the Place de Séoul [in the 14th?]...what is there?

David said...

Yes, it's in the 14th, behind Montparnasse.

It's a quite unusual plaza, which is basically a circle of mirrors with flowers in the middle.
Just google it, there are a few pictures that will make more sense than my description.

Just discovered you interesting blog! I will add it to my list of interesting Paris blog, which I have on the sidebar of my own Paris blog. This means that I have the intention to come back and hopefully it will also bring some other readers!

Thanks, David, for the introduction...I will be sure to visit it, and the garden on the roof of the Gare as well...Paris is endless in amazing discoveries!

And thank you, Peter, for your kind interest and "endorsement"...I have a lot of catching up on your wonderful all-encompassing Paris site, and I really appreciate the link!

I read your kind comments on my blog and would of course be honoured ir you added the link to my blog also on your list! I think that it's good to have this kind of exchange; there are a lot of blogs on Paris, but they are often different and should rather complete each other than be in "competition"!

Mentioning the "Jardin Atlantique", I visited it the other day. A surprising park on top of the station. A cold an grey January afternoon I was the only visitor. Surpring to find such a large and calm area, surrounded by the moving streets around!

I now also checked your paintings! Nice work!

Thanks again, Peter! Paris is truly a multi-source of inspiration for me!
Have you been to the Promenade Plantee above the Viaduc on the Avenue Daumesnil?
[perhaps a good post for Adam, too??...all these invisible gardens!]
