No O-fence!


It's been a long and tough week, I'm happy the weekend is coming up ;) Let's celebrate with a little quiz: where did I photograph this fence? It's a pretty touristy place so if you've already been to Paris, it's should be easy ;) Answer tomorrow (French time zone)!

  2. Ah oui ça pourrait être le Palais Royal avec les arcades et passage couvert sur la droite. I'm almost sure not to find, I'm really bad in riddle...
    Nice evening.

  4. Fastoche fastoche...encore aurait-il fallu réfléchir avant de donner la réponse (ce que je n'ai pas fait). Gf quand tu nous tiens.

  5. Oui, c'etait trop facile (ou tout au moins si j'ai aussi raison en disant qu'il s'agit bien du Palais Royal), mais tout de meme c'est une tres belle photo!

    Pourquoi ne pas avoir un petit concours toutes les semaines?!

  6. Sorry Eric, I only read English, I don't understand French.

  7. C'est surtout fastoche car la légende de la photo apparaît quand on passe dessus et en dévoile le nom [PalaisRoyalRail] :)
    Amusant quand même!

  8. he he i have absolutely no idea. Did you take the train to London and pop down to Buckingham Palace? I really don't know but i adore the photo, its grandeur, colour and beauty, just lovely.

  9. Ah oui, je viens de realiser que tu peux en effet voir la legende la photo quand tu passes dessus, bien vu Corinne. Je n'aurais jamais pu trouver, de toutes facons.

    Bon week-end a tous. Demain, je rentre en France pour 3 semaines. Ouiiiiii.

  10. First guess is Place de la Concorde, but the fence there has no tassels.
    So, I will defer to the French speakers before me, and go with Palace Royale.

  11. I am positive that it is the Palais Royal. These are the cloisters of the internal court ?

  12. Merci tous le monde. I'm going to get out my dictionnaire and spend the weekend figuring out the conversation above. I'll enjoy it!

  13. Both the Palais Royal and Tuileries immediately came to mind, so I am going to say Palais Royale, tho the arches look too close together(could be distortion--me or the camera), It looks like there are symetrical trees in the middle, but both places have that. Palais Royale!!!!
    Help me Tomate, I'm being tortured.

  14. I love what you do here. Through this blog, I can see places in Paris that I'll probably never get to see in my life. Absolutely wonderful! If I do that with my little town in Michigan, USA, do you think anyone would look!??! LOL Thanks for sharing your beautiful Paris.

  15. Clueless here but I love wrought iron. The little tops look royal-esque!

  16. When I click on the picture to get a larger view, voila - The name of the page is PalaisRoyalRail.JPG. Ha ha! Unless you're trying to trick us. Your photos are wonderful. Merci beaucoup.

  18. Hello from California! I just noticed your blog listed on Blogger's dashboard and had to come over and take a look. I love the idea of a photo a day from Paris - I've enjoyed these, and your commentary too. I'll be back for more.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh dear, I would have guessed Le Louvre but so many people are guessing Palais Royal!

    But that's strange, I recall commenting about these gold plated fences to my friend as we walked outside the Louvre at night...and how the painters must have painstakingly decorated each and every bulb!

    So Eric, is it Le Louvre?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Corinne a nous aidée, alors c'est trop fastoche bien sûre!!!

    Palais Royal naturellement!

  21. It couldn't be near Restaurant Vefour of March 4, could it?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Looks royal to me but I really don't know. Amazing in detail.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Palais Royale...wink, wink...wasn't that a movie??

    ReplyDelete
  24. hehe..

    je n’en ai aucune idée!
    je ne suis jamais allé à Paris ou France. hehe..

    mais, je veux à, un jour!!!

  25. I was in Paris, but I do not know solve your quiz. Your photos are very beautiful!
    Thanks for visiting my gallery of paintings and photos Pietro Brosio Gallery

  26. It can't be the Louvre because the fences of Louvre's garden (the Tuileries) measure something like 2,50 meters. That's the clue I should have noticed yesterday night... Here, I think Eric didn't climb on the fence to take the picture so I guess that the fences measure around 1,50m.

  27. Your home, Eric? (now that you are famous) ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I really love your pictures! I always dream about visiting Paris, a city of love. Hopes someday I can spend rest of my life in Paris...:)

  29. I don't know where it is... but I do love the symmetry and depth! I will go back to Paris one day! Love your photos!

  30. dont let the walnut sized brain fool you. western scrub jays do some real reasoning, says university of cambridge professor nicky clayton. they will move a food cache if another jay sees them hide it, recalling when they themselves were thieves.

  31. Hay, Eric, what a nice idea you set there! I'm brazilian and I recently been to Paris and, of course, like each and every tourist I loved what I've met and seen. In fact I went as a journalist to work and cover some major fashion events, but fortunately I also had some spare time on my own to walk around and see beautiful things, places and people. So your blog is kind of bringing me back that "walking around" sensation...

    and... yessss... when you mentioned the "PICKPOCKETS" on your Post Paris Sacam! on February 20th (so just because I've been there, it could be me, the girl in the photo...lol)I felt finnaly explained about it cause I was twice asked if the famous golden ring was mine or not... ahaha... and supposed it would end up just like you said, so I just answered "no thanks, not mine, but you can keep it maybe it will help you" ;o) Funny that I asked about that "street knock" to some parisian friends and nobody knew what could it be so my story seemed just like something I made up from my mind... :D

    I'll come back surely for more photos and posts! Nice meeting!

  34. You've inspired me to take more photographs. I'll check in from time to time to enjoy yours!

  35. I think this is a gate leading into the Tuileries garden. I took a photo of my daughter just on the other side of that gate.

  36. The photos are great! Thank you for this sneak of Paris :)

  37. Just saw your blog on bloggers dashboard too. I just LOVE your pictures and the idea of a picture everyday. Something to look forward to! :) I especially like in this picture the goldish color against the dark backround. Will definately come back for more!!

  38. Eric when you come in tonight, if you do, can you answer the millionth visitor question; i.e. who was it? lol some of us are curious. Perhaps it is impossible to tell? Just let us know. You are so busy these days, it's hard to catch you!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi Eric, just discovered your blog and like it very much. It's very inspiring and will surely make me (re)discover a couple of places I haven't been to yet or at least not for a while. Thank you for offering us each day such a pleasant view on Paris !

    I'll add your site to my blogroll and comme back regularly.

    Best wishes

    P.S.: I'd say as well that today's photo was taken at Palais Royal :)

  40. That's so easy I won't even answer. Just glad to be back home even if I already miss the warm weather and beach of Brazil...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Beach? Oh you tease, Michael. Next thing, you'll be telling us you're brown all over. Tut. .....? lol

    ReplyDelete
  42. Well, not ALL over, but in the places you can see at least. I still love the people and food there Lynn. It's a wonderful country and did I tell you that Monica sent some special

    are you sitting down?

    CHOCOLATES to my hotel room. She's so nice....

  43. Another new reader, who loves Paris. But my guess was the Louvre....

  44. Oh my goodness. No i was standing up and fell over. NOooo!!! How lovely. She is really lovely. I am quite jealous though on two counts. One, that you had such yummy chocs and two - she knew your hotel room no.??? Is this favouritism or what? Huff. ;)

    I've never been to Brazil, Michael....:( sob (as Guille would say).

  47. mon francais n'est pas parfait, mais je peux essayer:
    vos photos sont tres belles! je ne suis allee a paris qu'une fois mais c'etait magnifique.
    merci!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Michael, did you save some for me? Which chocolates were they? Please dont tell me they were Garoto or Sonho de Valsa or I will have an nervous breakdown!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Well, since I don't know where the fence is, I will guess the Palace Royale.

    ReplyDelete
  50. There's no fooling you Paris Daily Photo fans! It is indeed the fence surrounding the Palais Royal.

    Welcome back Michael. How lucky you are to have chocolates from Monica in Brésil.

    Bienvenue again to all of the new readers! It's nice to see you here.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Rose (and Eric), they were chocolates from "Chocolat du jour". I saved you some (nahhhh just kidding!)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Eric, I never notice the tassels until your photo! A lovely night shot beyond the fence top!

  53. Michael I'm so glad you enjoyed it. To tell you the truth I'm a bit envy cause we don't have this store in Rio.

    Rose I wouldn't give him Garoto because I really don't like this chocolate, I don't think they're very good. Sonho de Valsa I loooove! And Ouro Branco too. Don't get me started on chocolate, it's my favourite subject.
    Let's make a deal, promise me you'll let me know when you'll be in Rio within a few months, we have to get together and I'll gladly give you a box full of bombons!
    D'accord?

  54. Lynn you're so funny! You ALWAYS make me laugh with you comments!

  55. I watched Steve Martin's version of The Pink Panther today. Oddly enough, I saw that fence in the movie!

    This is a great blog!

  56. You know what's so amazing about these spear/tassels, now that I look at them again: each of them is different. They're not all from the same mold. Imagine the craftsmanship.
