Éva said...

What a photo, what an atmosphere!
I like it very much!

Dianne said...

Aah! just ever so pretty - Les Parisiennes do Cimetieres well!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Beautiful, V... the scene looks like a fine painting in which the artist has dipped a brush into the brighter end of the color spectrum, giving the cemetery life. The pink cyclamen draw the eyes into your art and composition.

Excellent, my friend!

Elizabeth said...

Virginia, this is dreamy. I gasped when I opened your link.

Cezar and Léia said...

V, this is such a poignant and beautiful shot! The flowers really give colour and hope to this rainy cemetery. I love it. I've never seen the rain captured in this way

Daryl said...

Just brought back memories of French class and having to memorize, then recite Paul Verlaine's Il pleure dans mon coeur

M said...

Rain? Tears? A mixture of both? What a poignant composition. Love the pink pop of color.

wonderful shot V!!! I love the rain against the window...what a wonderful effect!

Jeanne said...

Virginia, you have such a good eye for capturing the shot at the right moment in time. This is stunning! I have much to learn.

Starman said...

I like your title picture. I've always wanted to play with a boat in the pool, but the kids would never let me.

Alexa said...

I think that every superlative that came to my mind has been used here. Je suis éblouie par ce photo—and ever in awe of your fine eye!

Virginia said...

Megi, thank you for your visits!!!!

Alexa, I just learned a new word "éblouie"! :)

Starman, I want to push boats too.

Jeanne, I am a work in progress myself.

Kathy, I think it's rain or maybe condensation. Whatever, I liked the effect!

Marie, I hadn't thought of tears!

Jack, Really! We all know it NEVER rains in Paris! HA

Brittany, I loved the color myself.

Elizabeth, this is a wonderful place to photograph. Thank you.

Cezar et Leia, you are always so kind.

Octavien, thank you for stopping by my blog and your very kind comment.

Genie, I knew you'd like it! It's got YOUR color!

Éva, Thank you

Dianne, yes they do!

Jules said...

Once again, lovely work.
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving comment.
I have, since then, checked out your other blog and do love your work.

I was ashamed that you may have winced at some of my photo's.
I wish that I could take a class from you to square up my lens and shot choices.

Thanks, and have a good one!

How emotive this image is. Something so snuggly about looking at rain on glass, either through to, or away from, a cosy room. Have just stumbled across your blog and tickled pink because we share the same name! (Unusual in Australia.)
Cheerio from Virginia in Melbourne.

Love the effect of the rain and the pink pop of colour!!

Ciao Virginia, le cimitière, il y a toujours quelques choses de romantique.

Wow. Beautiful composition. An artwork.

Virginia said...

Jules, I would never wince!!! You do a great job with the photographs on your blog. We're all learning!!!

Thanks Joe!

Italo, romanic cemeteries? Never thought of them that way.
