The following images are the result of a long walk from Montparnasse through the Jardin de Luxembourg and through the Jardin de Tuileries to the Place de la Concorde (and back) on a Saturday in September - images mostly of people, but with some exceptions, ordered chronologically.

I offer my apologies for the long thread.

#1 Entering the Jardin du Luxembourg



#2 Weekend



#3 Misfit (the hat, I think)



#4 Big bus



#5 On the banks of the river Seine



#6 That's a tourist panorama



#7 Preparing the next photo project



#8 The hidden kiss



#9 Pic nique



#10 Down to the river



#11 Playing the bass



#12 Playing the saxophone



#13 Relaxing together



#14 Good read



#15 A place to remember



#16 Bridges and people



#17 Forever bound?



#18 Looking up



#19 Into the night, now



#20 The guests are gone, already



#21 Soon to be closed



#22 Les Tontons



#23 A last cigarette

Harald, with this subject and in this setting, how can you go wrong?
You've captured these images very appealingly, and I like the passage of time and change of light on your journey.
My favourites are not surprisingly the ones that remind me of similar walks through Paris with camera in hand, namely ##2, 5, 13, 14, 16, 19 and 22.
And from a photographic artistry point of view, I really like ##8 and 9.
Thanks for sharing.

A very relaxing series.
You captured the atmosphere well.
As Joe said, the passage of time adds to that.
Walking and looking is my favorite hobby in cities.
You brought back memories and saved sore feet

Wow, nice set and as C_N_RED_AGAIN said, #8 is very strong.
It looks as if they were unable to wait a moment later for that kiss. It had to be now.
Good catch, the composition is also very representative of the moment.

An extremely nice set - great variety with #8, for me, the clear winner in terms of interest, uniqueness, composition, etc. Also, #20 with it's "Where's Waldo" appeal, particularly given the whole set is featuring people - the pattern of the chairs/tables and then that little tiny "Waldo" figure - great. I also like that there is a bit of a mystery with the book (or menu), but I hope it's a book, on that front table.

Brilliant, Harald! Every one of these photos are excellent with #8 my favorite!
And you know your sense of humor is very subtile, but never escapes my notice!
Simply some of my favorite photos I've viewed all year here on Dyxum! Have you printed some of these, or considered making prints? Thanks very much for sharing!

Kind regards,

Kelly

A very nice set.
#8 is a good catch.

Excellent set Harald! I agree with comments above that #8 is stunning and the winner of this set. Paris is a great place for this kind of photography.
The chairs in #2 and 20 bring back some of my specific personal memories from earlier this year (see #3 and 4).

#8 is certainly the best here, but i also like #10. Altogether the series is great to watch because of the diversity. TFS Harald .

Thank you all for your appreciative comments!

Maybe I just have been lucky that day. Interestingly the walk started in a special way - I just thought: That's a sign! - when I left the hotel and passed the first crossing street - it's been

#24 Rue Niepce



And there has been a second sign just walking a bit further and passing:
#25 Cafe Daguerre


So I had the fundamental history of photography already behind me!

Fred: That's exactly the same place we took photographs of (and the same objects)!

Worth the walk and more for #8 alone, but you got some other goodies too! The photography gods were with you.
