My camera seems to have become an extension of my amateur photographer eyes! All photos prior to 2007 are scanned and were taken with a Fuji camera.

Beautiful! Reminds me that years ago there was a popular song in the U.S. called something like "Have some Madeira my dear!" The point was the guy was trying to get his girl friend drunk on Madeira wine so he could have his way with her!

I like the fan-like structure of the tree, the white bark looks beautiful.

What a gorgeous tree - the shape is so unusual and artistic and the photo eccentuates that beautifully. The green is so beautiful, too.

Thanks for your info on La Samaritaine. It's news of almost tragic proportions if that can be said about a building. Will they save the shell or are they taking it down? If I had the time, I'd find all my photos of the grand dame, and publish a blog memorial. I may do that with the ones that are easy to locate. So, so sad. I never shopped there, but I loved the building.
