Paris Rouge XLV - Night Moves


A rainy night in Paris and a long walk back to the apartment.  The photo ops made it so worth the effort!

I can really feel and sense the atmosphere of the evening. It is almost like being there since there is so much life ongoing in this shot. Just love it.

Was that the day that we walked so much that you had holes in your socks?

Well captured, V—you may have been whining about the rain, but just look what you got out of it!

Virginia said...

Alexa, Not whining about the rain...oh no...I was whining about all the walking. Mary is ruthless in Paris!!!

Jack said...

It is an evocative shot, Virginia, oddly romantic. Wet, red, dark yet with lights flashing, and the poster of the handsome man sadly thinking . . .

Virginia said...

Jack, EVERTHING in Paris is "oddly romantic" pour moi. I am glad you liked the we,red, and the poster. It's to Paris to me and I rarely get rain shots! I'm too careful with my camera.
