By Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger.

It’s April in Paris, right now.  And it is a fine time to visit that most romantic of cities, but sometimes April there can dip down to the 40’s—sound familiar?  And, despite Yip Harburg’s lyrics, chestnuts in blossom don’t happen till May, and nobody is setting “holiday tables under the trees.”  In Luxembourg Gardens, blooms are starting to pop in April, and they have a bandstand there. However, choose May.

“I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never new my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in Paris..
“Whom can I run to
What have you done to my heart”

This song, “April in Paris” was written by Yip Harburg and Vernon Duke for a 1932 Broadway show called, “Walk a Little Faster.”  Harburg also wrote the lyrics for “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”  So many have recorded “April in Paris,” but Count Basie made the most famous version.

Outside courtyard at the Musée D’Orsay in Paris. Nothing new under the sun.  Paul Goldfinger ©. Tri-X collection.  Click on image to enlarge.

The Musée D’Orsay is an art museum on the Left Bank in Paris. It has a large collection of Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic masterpieces.

Those bare breasted women in the image above, probably early 20th century beauties, are relaxing in the Paris sunshine, proudly displaying their loveliness.   And the other three women,  the warm blooded variety of today, are enjoying their company without evident embarrassment.

The photograph above shows that nothing changes—that everything old is new again.
