Celebrez aujourd'hui!!




I took one of the maps from Disney World in french, so I would have something fun to say.  The title is Celebrate Today.  When I signed up for this event I was so excited I could share more photos of my trip to Paris at New Years.  But, today I am in Epcot in Disney World Florida and I can  share some pictures from here, too.  My computer is slow and I am slow too,  after vistiting two parks in one day.  I am going to leave you with some  images of today.  Tomorrow I will try some more posts.  The bottom picture is a set up scene looking down from a bridge as you cross over to France in Epcot.  I love this most about France.  I love the scene and how it romances the artist.  I love how the french love and appreciate art.  The Louvre is  an experience it is amazing the size of it.....the amount of people visiting it.   My favorite time period in Art History is Impressionism.  I love the Victorian time period.  I love the colors, the light, the costumes, the flowers, the blue skies, on and on.  My favorite is how Monet really romances the images he paints.  My favorites are the studies of Notre Dame.  When  you see Notre Dame in person and you go inside you wish for the Monet image-----light and bright.  Notre Dame is really a dark structure with no light on the inside and gargoyles on the outside
Through all of the artists of the Impressionism you really see Paris as the City of Lights.  It really is the most romantic place on earth.  I love it and I am so thrilled to have been able to visit Paris in person.  So, today I was able to revisit France in a completely romantic way.  There were flowers, no crowds, a bakery, french wine and warm Florida sun.

If you can't have the real thing Disney can probably recreate it! Plus warm weather. Love your photos. Pam

You are so cute! I wouldn't mind being there with you reminiscing about my trip to Paris. You are so right about Notre Dame. I was surprised with how dark it was, but when I saw a statue of my Saint, it was very spiritual. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing your pictures of Paris when you return. For some reason, the link that you added on my page isn't working. I knew how to find you though. Have a great trip!
