Tag, I'm it

I have been tagged by That Girl for a photo tag

The rules:
Go to the 4th folder in your computer where you store your pictures
Pick the 4th picture in that folder
Explain the picture
Tag 4 people to do the same

Okay, so here is my photo. It's an apartment block in Paris that I found very beautiful and would have loved to live there. It was taken from Les Invalides in October 2007. Paris is a city I love and I should make an effort to spend more time there. Note to self, travel more.

So mes amies, see what I did there ? Clever eh ? not just a middle aged face.

I tag

Tom Foolery because she is very nifty with a camera.

Indigo Alison as her photography is always beautiful and thought provoking, visiting her blog is a real visual treat.

A woman of no importance as dear Fhina also illustrates her blog with fantastic imagery.

So because I am so subversive I am only going to tag 3 bloggers and they can choose to do the original 444 tag or go with my 333.

Rebel is my middle name.

I want to live there, too. (Actually I want to live in Place des Voges 'cos there's a nice park Charlie could play in, but hey - I'm not picky, as long as it's Paris! We're twins, y'know, AG.)

Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

I wonder what happened to David Bowie? You don't hear him on the radio much these days.

I'm liking this tag. I will do it :)

When I'm rich (!!!) I'm going to buy a nice little place in Paris. The food, the wine, the culture - happy times have been sent it that city :) TFx

See me tomorrow, darlin' - Merci pour le tag! What's tag in French?! Dotterel will know...

A Paris, I am quite keen on living out at La Porte Doree, maybe we could all meet up for cafe creme?!

Merci, Beautiful Auntie Gwen x

Tu es tres sophisticate!!!! Auntie G - you are one cosmopolitan babe! love this photo! I would like to live there too and if we both did, I would bring you macaroons and croissants every morning to have with your coffee! The building reminds me of the SATC episodes when Carrie is trying to catch sight of the Eiffel Tower. Thanks so much for playing tag avec moi!! xx

Great tag and fab pic. That's quite an apartment block! It wouldn't have been your tag if you hadn't rebelled!!

That's a gorgeous picture. I love Paris too and haven't been for so long :o(
I want a trendy apartment with a cute little balcony so I can sit and sip my wine!
(Yes I CAN sip - when I want to!) ;o)

Mom/Mum said...

Great photo AG - makes me ache for Europen architecture.... x

Laura said...

Fab building, Wonder if you can see the pub from there! Glad you didn't pick me as I have nothing but boring concert ticket photo in my 4th folder lol

Shirley said...

Neat building! It'd be fun to vacation there, but living . . . well, that would require MOVING, wouldn't it? Yuck. Never want to move again!

Mean Mom said...

It's a beautiful building and an excellent photo, of course. I like my garden, though, so an apartment wouldn't do for me, I'm afraid!

Tim - Ooh how lovely, I always wanted a brother and that means I get to be Charley's aunt, sorry the desire for the cheap gag gets me every time !

TF - and when you do you musn't forget your auntie x

Awoni - how fab that your photo was Paris too ! Yep, when we all live in Paris we must meet and discuss lofty intellectual things regularly, we will be thin and sophisticated and your back won't be banjaxed, the theories of Christian Laboutain and Manolo Blanik count as intellectual conversation, right ? xx

That girl - mais oui we shall be living a tres chic life, and we will be utterly utterly glamourous EVERY DAY... xx

Bertthdu - yep it is lovely but I must say, your own place isn't too shabby either

penelope - yep, the balcony and the wine, heaven, do you think if I'm good I could get David Ginola too ???? OMG I'm going to have to have a wee lie down, I think I have a new release straight into number 1 of my CSL xxx

lisa - oh you should and make a film about it ... an American in Paris, sorry, again the desire for the cheap gag, my apologies x

Awoni - dear Fhina, many thanks for the kind award, I always appreciate them, truly xx

Lolly - I tried to pick bloggers that I knew had photography as a big part of their lives, I do admire their talent and the way they visualise the world x

Shirley - I have said that after every move but then you forget, I am desperate to move, I am very very unsettled at the moment

MM - I think if I had outside space like a biggish balcony I'd be fine, it's such a big treat to sit outside in your pyjamas to eat breakfast on sunny days.

Mom/Mum - sorry sweetie, I missed you out , my apologies, it's so hard to be away from home isn't it ? I do love America but European architecture is just something truly special. Much love xx and xx
