Today I am taking you for a stroll in Paris with a few pictures from our last trip there back in May. The young woman in the headscarf is Ilham the Baker. She is from Morocco. She bakes all her goods herself at home on the day and night before the market. We bought bread and chatted for a while. She gave us sweet mint tea and cornes de gazelle, cookies baked in the shape of horns. I am keeping her in my thoughts.
Beautiful pictures! And you are right to talk of a woman in a headscarf, she's a Parisian and as such is entitled to this.
Merci, Anne-Laure! Grosses bises!

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos! These remind you of more peaceful times.
They do indeed. Thank you, Karin!
Beautiful pictures. Ones faith should have nothing to do who we are on the inside. At the end of the day most people just want to go about enjoying their day, their family and friends. As much as I enjoy eating bread, it’s heart warming to see the smile on the faces of those who baked it.
As always, thinking of your precious family. And the families in Paris and all of France (my sister lives in France, my other sister who lives in Israel was there as well last week).
Thank you, Al! I so agree with you. I hope your family keeps safe wherever they live.

I love looking at the world through your eyes. Your ability to capture the beauty and the Spirit of the places and people you photograph captivates me. Your photos have made me look at my surroundings differently. Suddenly I see the stillness that is inherent in all things. It is just there, all around all of the time. How could have I missed it before?
Hello again Janet, the notion of stillness never occurred to me but now that you mention it, I see it too and I love it. Thank you for opening my eyes to it!
Very colorful pictures! Thanks for bringing a touch of Paris into my life!
Hello Spencer, I am glad you like these images of Paris, one of the most photogenic cities I know.
