Un Après-Midi Sur La Seine

Taken last June on my wonderful evening spent with American/Parisian photographer Meredith Mullins.

Note to self: Next trip......a bottle of champagne needs to be uncorked right here!

Love the shot. It reminds me of the Robert Doisneau photos.

We went to a picnic on the Seine a couple of years ago. It was in June and it was cold. I wore a leather jacket.

Can you travel between May and July?

Virginia said...

Starman,
Have toothbrush will travel! :) And the weather in Paris is a constant mystery to me. In June last year the Parisians all had on jackets, not summer but winter. We were in tee shirts. It was cold then hot as hades.

Virginia said...

Louis,
Rive gauche? Certainement! :)

Mary,
Are they even halfway good?

Mary and Katie,
Well we'll need more than one bottle, oui??

Shell,
merci

Debs,
Oh I am very very very flattered!!

Daryl,
you know my monochromes are often just marginal!

Great shot, V! I had many pique-niques here back in the day, and will gladly contribute a bottle of bubbly to yours. Was in Paris one summer—and it was about 40°F on the 4th of July.

Yes, exactly what Debs said. It reminds me of a Robert Doiseneau photo. One in particular that is hanging in my bedroom!
