Temps Orageux


As is often the case when I visit Paris, the weather is..... well Paris! We love it when it drizzles, n'est-pas?

Aujourd'hui Françoise Hardy has just the perfect  chanson pour vous!

Ominous looking clouds above the Seine. Think I would be keeping an eager eye out for a cosy cafe complete with croissant.

Oh and a cozy spot for some wine and cheese! The perfect day for this.

Pour apprécier le beau ciel bleu... il faut aussi des cieux comme celui-ci de temps en temps... Très belle photo ceci dit!...
Gros bisous.

What a marvellous shot, V! I love how the sky is so heavy and menacing, yet the light is still so strong. Very atmospheric.

I really love the upper half of this photograph--- those two sets of horizontals, the clouds and the city, wonderful!!!!

Reminds me of coasting down the Seine on a Bateau Mouche!

If that's the way you like Paris, you'd not like it now. Except for a few minutes last week, it has been sunny and warm, with temps in the low to mid 20°C.

A classic (and classy) b/w shot of the Seine. It has an ageless quality.

That is an absolutely gorgeous photo!

Thanks for the link to the FH chanson. The images that go with aren't bad either—but yours is better, bien sur!

Harriet said...

Stephan, I tried to leave a comment for you. We have thefabulous Barber Motorsports Museum here. You would love the vintage cars. I'd happily shoot some for you.

The brooding sky adds drama. With inclement weather, I suppose you were forced to retreat into a pleasant bistro.
