An Afternoon in Nogent sur Seine

Le Vieux Bateau

La Corde á Linge

What a beautiful little town on the Seine this was in the French countryside. Today a sampling, but I have more to share.

Charming place, and especially charming photos!

One of the things I love about Europe is seeing clothes on the line. People just don't believe in dryers over here!

I just discovered your post on portraits. Great! And Peter seems to be waiting but so gracefully...

Karen said...

Both are great photos but I especially love the first one. The old boat, the numbers on the tilted board, and everything else just come together for perfection.

Oh these are so good .. nice peek into the day to day .. and the header photo reminds me of the odd street art I photographed down in Meatpacking District ...love it!

How perfect -- the old boat with the green and the pink and the ducks...

PJ sez AL is home of the Original Mardi Gras. What does she mean, I wonder.

Harriet said...

Oh, Virginia, that first photo is sublime! If I were an artist, this is something that I would want to paint.

Virginia said...

AH,
PJ is correct. It was the first city to host a Mardi Gras parade, even before New Orleans!

Maya,
We did our fair share of clothes drying the old fashioned way in Paris and the countryside. They are a little stiff but smell so good when hung outside.

I like the boat. It appears to be metallic. Do you get close enough to notice?

Frank said...

Love your Paris images. We too lost our heads and hearts in Paris and look forward to a return trip. You captured some wonderful scenes and I know how hard it must be to sit in Birmingham and dream of Paree. Your people and places shots are terrific. (The haircut we both commented on would go along great with the wonderful tattooed young lady you posted earlier.)

I love these...some of my favorites!
