Can I do zest.. I sure can (can)!



Zest: spirited enjoyment, gusto! When Aimee and I were in Paris of course we had to 'experience' Moulin Rouge and the joy of the 'Can Can', once described as 'an immorally uplifting experience' :) it was so much fun and without doubt 'zesty'! When I admired the work of fellow blogger, artist and 'doodler extraordinaire' Theanne from Yaya Snaps she made a print and sent it to me so that I could frame and hang it.. which I have, merci beaucoup Theanne, j'adore! Really looking forward to seeing how fellow bloggers have interpreted this theme here.. Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

  1. An immorally uplifting experience. I like that. I didn't visit Moulin Rouge on my visit to Paris. So it's still on my list.

  3. Love, love, love it, Grace! When I was single, living with other single women one of my room-mates and I had the can-can down to a terrific routine!! Love the memories. It was a wonderful "immoral uplifting experience!"

  7. Know you will have no trouble doing "zest", but I'll not speculate on the can can.

  8. I have great zest for the Moulin Rouge. One of our best experiences in Paris was our evening at the Moulin Rouge, and we were seated up front close to the door where the girls came in and out. They were magnificent!

  9. Hmm, when I think of zest I think of lemons, not necessarily the can-can. :-)

  12. I found the Moulin Rouge area of Paris verging on the tawdry and sad, Grace. Your print, however, is the exact opposite of that.

    I was most impressed with your new Olympus camera. It looks quite spectacular. Thanks for sharing, it's always great to know what fellow photographers are using. I'll put your little beauty on my wish list.

  16. If ANY of the CDP bloggers lives with zest, Grace, it would be vous! Nice zest photo. And, I have been to Moulin Rouge, too. I saw as much as can be seen with fogged glasses.
