Paris Set Me Free - Paris Photo Quiz 9 - 'Bright Ideas at Bedtime'

TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD'S MOST FASCINATING CITY!

Quiz No. 9: 'Bright Ideas at Bedtime'

Question: "Who is he, and what is he most famous for?

==> COMMENT HERE! <==
One of the most impressive of all Parisian monuments, this chap certainly had character, if his final resting place is anything to go by. But who is he?
I can tell you that he worked as a salesman at Le Bon Marché for a while, and was good friends with the founder of another of the great Parisian department stores, La Samaritaine.
But that's not why he became well known and wealthy. No. So, can anyone come up with any bright ideas this time? It seems that my Paris quizzes are proving to be rather tougher than I meant them to be. But I'm not going to go soft on you just to make it easy. No, it's up to you to have a go or even just say you haven't got a clue but that you're there and like the picture anyway! Saying hi and sharing a passion for Paris is the thing!
And DON'T FORGET: The first two or three people to leave comments will all receive a couple of wonderful, signed Paris Set Me Free bookmarks by post. Those of you who do get a bookmark may be asked to send a cool photo to prove it and I'll link you back to your own site if you've got one. Look - it happened to Paris Paul, and it could happen to you too!

THERE ISN'T ONE YET!
I'm still waiting for the first comment and right answer. Go on - you could be the one, and your name could be broadcast in flashing pixels on this very blog! So go ahead and have a guess - I promise I won't laugh - unless it's really funny! I'm not telling you what it is until at least a couple of you have had a go, so there.

Paris Photo Quiz No.8 ~ 'Careful: History Crossing'

Test Your Knowledge
~ Careful: History Crossing ~

Paris Set Me Free - Paris Photo Quiz - 'Careful: History Crossing'

TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD'S MOST FASCINATING CITY!

Quiz No. 8: 'Careful: History Crossing'

Question: "Where are we and what's significant about the road?

==> COMMENT HERE! <==
Funnily enough (well, not for the guy) the second cyclist's bike chain spontaneously combusted, well, busted, two seconds after this photo was taken and dumped him unceremoniously onto the hard old cobblestones at my feet. But just how old are these cobblestones, and what's significant or symbolic about them?
Paris often offers us these charming paved streets, loved by promeneurs but hated by motorists as they jiggle you all over the place and play havock with your suspension. And there's a current trend for redoing certain roads with the things much to the respective delight or disgust of the aforementioned interested parties.
Be that as it may, here we are looking at something very interesting indeed, if you find the history of the city interesting, of course. So put your clever dick hat on and impress us by telling us what's so interesting about them...
And DON'T FORGET: The first two or three people to leave comments will all receive a couple of wonderful, signed Paris Set Me Free bookmarks by post. Those of you who do get a bookmark will be asked to send a cool photo to prove it and I'll link you back to your own site if you've got on. Look - it happened to Paris Paul, and it could happen to you too! Can't say fairer than that, can you? So there's everything to comment for - looking forward to reading you!

Paris Photo Quiz No.7 ~ 'Gargoyle This!'

Test Your Knowledge
~ Gargoyle This! ~

Paris Set Me Free - Paris Photo Quiz - 'Gargoyle This!'

TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD'S MOST FASCINATING CITY!

Quiz No. 7: 'Gargoyle This!'

Question: "What's intriguing about this pic, and where is it?

Common or garden old gargoyle-encrusted Parisian church, right? Right!
Except that, like many old, gargoyle-encrusted Parisian churches, it has a few secrets to offer up to those who know where to look.
Actually getting this picture was in and of itself somewhat of an exploit, not helped by the fact that it was summer, with the leaves at their absolute largest and most detail-hiding just to make my job really difficult.
Yep, you'll have guessed that it's not the leaves that are the intriguing aspect of this photo! So what is? I'm still to attract a reasonable number of participants to this little blog, but I'm still working on it guys, so support me if you can!
And DON'T FORGET: The first two or three people to leave comments will all receive a couple of wonderful, signed Paris Set Me Free bookmarks by post. I'm going to try to convince past winners to pose with them to prove they exist - stay tuned to see if I managed! So there's everything to comment for - looking forward to reading you!
