in the wrong spot

Parisian pigeons on a wire that stretches 
across the rue Montmartre.
If they flew one street over to the right, to 
the market street of rue Montorgeuil, 
they'd find some yummy things including snails at
l'Escargot Montorgeuil (founded in 1832)
and the original baba au rum at Stohrer, Paris's
oldest patisserie (there since 1730).

Cimetière de Passy

Judging by the vines growing over the door
of this crypt in the Passy Cemetery,
 in Paris, I'm going to say that it hasn't
been opened in a very long time.

inSPIREd Sunday

I believe I've shown a few side chapels
and details of this church—
Sant'Andrea della Valle, in Rome.
Here's the beautiful main altar (and a
bit of the ornate organ too).

The Weekend in Black and White

I followed this trio of nuns as they
(almost) in unison
 always bustling Piazza Navona, in Rome.

I'm back in Cape May for the weekend
and hoping to enjoy 
sensational sunsets like this one.

Nevins Street

Recently saw this helpful (note the braille)
sign in the subway, and have been
looking for others like it.  Haven't spotted
any yet, but it does look very old.
Maybe they've mostly been removed.

ABC Wednesday—F is for "fig tart"

I saw these fabulous figgy things at a patisserie
near the Marché d'Aligre, in Paris.
If they're still making them the next time I'm
there, I'm going to eat one instead
of taking a picture!
