Printemps department store in Paris is filled with all types of marvelous items most of which exceeded the amount I wished to spend when I was there recently with my sister Margaret. Everything in the store has a price tag and even a trip to the loo for a bathroom break cost a euro, but there was one thing that could be had there for free. You have seen it before if you saw a post I wrote a few weeks ago. If you missed it, let me just say that what you get for free at Printemps is an amazing view of the Paris skyline.
I snapped this photograph on a walkway between two of the Printemps buildings. Click on it to get a clear look at the two window cleaners on the upper right side of the image.
This is from the other side of the walkway. I had my Canon G11 set in Color Accent mode which in this case was set to pick up the color red.
Here you can see a small gathering of people trying to catch the perfect shot from the rooftop terrace.
Another image from the rooftop.
I know I have completely disregarded the rule of thirds but I don’t care. I like this shot with the abundance of clouds and sky.
More big sky along with the ever familiar Eiffel Tower.
There is ample space to have a rest from your shopping or sightseeing and there is a small restaurant on the same level serving light snacks and drinks. Anne from Anne In Oxfordshire visits friends in Paris fairly often and was curious as to where I had managed to capture images like those above. I told her when she asked in a comment that I was saving the location for another post, but now that I’ve done the big reveal I wonder if anyone worked it out before today.
