Kaleidoscope of Colours

Perhaps my favorite shop to feast in the colours and textures of the Paris store displays was at Boutiques le Jacquard Francais on 53 rue Bonaparte. This small, intensely vibrant shop, was a kaleidoscope of colours and textures near our apartment in St. Germaine.

Wow, Nanci. the colors of the scarves are YOUR colors. The koi painting just sings! Are they from your pond?

These koi are from a pond in my community, owned by one guy who is very generous allowing me to go and photograph them. I have about 40 or 50 fish, but they are much smaller. I do have room for bigger ones, but they are not inexpensive... maybe a summer birthday present!
