This is how I think of the Luxembourg Gardens, behind the Luxembourg Palace in Paris. In the late afternoon, people gather and stroll, or sit and talk. Everyone looks very relaxed and content to be in this beautiful place. This was a little bit before sunset, so there was that golden light on the last few tallest buildings, with the pink light in the foreground. Ahh...magical!
There's a fabulous painting by my favorite painter, John Singer Sargent,"In the Luxembourg Gardens". He captured that wonderful pink light before sunset so beautifully. And of course, I love the long dresses and the suits. So elegant!
