Le Marais Blues

The colour blue juxtaposed to a backdrop of muted, dull surfaces is intensified by the vibe of the Marais.    

sa nouvelle et son vieux,

ses transports anciens et traditionnels,

mon escalier à balustre typique,

ses garçons en bleu,
All I need to make a comedy is a park, a policeman and a pretty girl. Charlie Chaplin
son ciel,
 I never saw a man who looked with such a wistful eye upon that little tent of blue which prisoners call the sky.  Oscar Wilde
son eau colorée
There is no blue without yellow and without orange. Vincent van Gogh

 ses magasins bleu.......noir........rouge......
et ses rues.
Oui, Le Marais, je t'adore.

Le Marais, Paris - let's party

It has been said "The rest of Paris can certainly be envious of Le Marais’s wonders". For those who like to watch the world go by, this friendly district has an eclectic mix of colourful characters. 

Last year, our apartment provided an excellent vantage point for watching the Gay Pride celebrations in the Marais. This event welcomed everyone - gay and straight; old and young; introverted and extraverted.................... Oui, Le Marais, je t'adore.
