PARIS and MARSEILLE

                           Here's a top of the year selection of completely disparate pix from a
                           recent trip to Paris and Marseille.

We visited the famous Catacombs of Paris, deep under the city, 
with the ossuary containing the remnants of millions of French citizens
going back over a thousand years.

I love French poster graphics and this is the side of a moving van.

No zoo, so cages are filled with colorful plastic replicas...

These kids were on their way home from school and 
asked if I would take their picture...

Monks amongst us

This family from Mexico City was shopping near Canal Street
and I couldn't help but ask them if I could take a family portrait.
They were thrilled, and so was I.

FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOUR HOUSE

Once upon a time, Christmas was a major card sending moment for millions of      Americans. This included a mini-craze in the 1940's and 50's for home made,
do-it-yourself greetings.  

Enjoy this small selection of love and creativity from another era.
