Scavenger Hunt Sunday (10)

Wow, I can't believe I've already taken part in 10 of these! Doesn't feel like it could be that many already!

Lucky you, you get a sneak peek at a few of my shots from Paris this weekend. Off we go....

Give Me Flowers:
Close up of one of my roses from my Mother's Day bouquet. I rarely get flowers because husband thinks since flowers barely seem to last a week, that it's a waste of money and he'd rather buy me something I can keep and use, like a new lens (wink, wink). I agree, but I still do love getting flowers!

Visual Contrast:
 I saw this flower growing in a completely concrete parking lot one day. Of course it was a day I didn't have my camera with me. I went back the next day with my camera and took the picture!

 Looks like two little kids playing, well it is, but this picture is special. Ariana (on the left) is mine and speaks English. The little girl on the right spoke French. AAAANNNDD this was taken in a park right beside the church of Notre Dame. So surreal. Children make friends anywhere and everywhere, play has no language barrier!

Before and After:
Ariana and I did a little coloring the other day. I'll give you a hint, I colored Zoe :)

 DARK chocolate filled pastry in Paris (I could live off this buttery, flaky, chocolatey goodness) Oh and Starbucks. Gotta start my mornings out right!

I'm linking up with Ashley at Rambling and Photos:

Oh and be sure to come back later this week for more Paris pictures from this weekend!


Pin It!
