I was away in the countryside over the weekend but the weather was nice in Paris too - much sunnier than in these pictures taken two weeks ago at the parc Monceau.
There was an air of the 1860s afoot. Found in a flash - the idea of the promenade spectacle dear to our ancestors comes to life in the right setting! A living tableau...with some anachronisms.

The next time I'm there, I guess I'll see Seward Johnson's bronzes inspired by Manet and Renoir that were just installed. It is a nostalgic kind of place.
Time for play , time for reverie.
Less self-conscious moments benefit from a nice setting, too.
