Jeudi dans la tete de l'homme du Giverny


Two most joyous days with M. Monet. Firstly, wandering the paths and ponds of Giverny. Secondly, observing his massive waterlillies (les nympheas) in the round at Musee L'Orangerie

Wonderful, Julie. I don't know anyone who doesn't like Monet. Your second photo is just perfect.

Oh, those many shades of cool greens and blues. And a stunning reflective ripple. I agree on the Monet love.

Julie, beautiful photos and we share a love of Monet. I saw the waterlillies at Musee L'Orangerie right after it re-opened. The Musée Marmottan has a wonderful collection as well. I would like to see Giverny -- the reflections in your photo there actually have the look of Monet and the Impressionists. Great post!

Oh if only my own garden was like Giverny. I loved both of my visits there and as for the waterillies at Musee L'Orangerie I hung around there for ages and it wasn't because I was tired from tramping around the rest of Paris. It's fun having you visit these wonderful places.

You seem to be making good use of your time there. Keep it up Julie.

Beautiful reflections.

Very Monet that second one and the backlighting in the top one works really well.

The second one is a Monet.

Lovely. Monet is great, but I'm more a Gauguin gal.

Your second photo is the real Monet deal. Nice one.

So amazing!

James said...

Outstanding shots! You worked wonders with color and light.
I'll be arriving in Paris next month just before the Giverny Gardens close for the season. I can't decide if I should go or not. I must admit that I'm very tempted.

This link might help if yo like jazz.

some one asked me where to get red sunflowers.

Where did you find yours?

Julie said...

Ann, they were in the garden of M. Monet just north of Paris. He and his heirs have planted a wonderful array of sunflowers of magical hues.
