    Have never been able to find a delicious cheese pastry-NOT PIZZA- anywhere except at Boulangerie Desgranges, on rue Passy: their Gnocchi Parisienne!! Viva DesGranges and the Gnocchi Parisienne!!! Fern's photographs remind me of the wonderful sights and foods in Paris!

    There’s nothing like a photograph to emote a buried feeling spark a long lost memory, or simply to draw into a story. Your photos do that. I would be in Paris now if things were different gathering new stories for my blog Womanofacertainageinparis.com. Sadly I cannot be there. But these photos are the next best thing. Thank you!

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures. My wife and I were lucky enough to spend Christmas of 2018 in Paris, and during this quarantine, we have been reliving that magical time with our pictures.
