Paris Rouge LXIX - En Voiture!!


Gare de Lyon

Monsieur Google was kind enough to translate this.  We all know that as available as he is, he can be a titch "off the mark". I welcome corrections for "All Aboard!"  

My thanks to Véronique who so  kindly corrected the title for me. I've made the change!

You'll find that rouge no matter what, no matter where!

Tut! Tut! Did the security man chat you up? I tried to take photographs at Gare du Nord in the style of Monet as I waited for the train to his gardens. But the security man wished a moment of my time.

How about "Tout le monde 'a bord le train!"
Oh, to take another European train ride.....

Virginia said...

Julie, nobody stopped me this day. I think I'm blessed, I"ve taken photos a lot of places that later I found out were prohibited.

Merci Veronique for advising on the translation. I shied away from t hat one because "voiture" means car but now I see it can mean train car. I will change my title!

The red is so brilliant. This must be where French Henri Pottérs to go to L'école de Cochon-verroux!

the roof reminds me of the Stillwell Avenue elevated subway stop in Brooklyn/Coney Is.

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

You're welcome, Virginia! I agree with Paris Paul: This picture does remind me of Harry Potter (I am a big Harry Potter fan!) ;-) Wonder if they have a Platform 9 3/4 there? Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I've taken photos at nearly all the train stations in Paris and never had a problem. I love riding the trains in Europe.

Just teasing...but I am ready to go and will be there in less than a month!. Nice picture!...Janey

Jack said...

The ironwork structure is wonderful, and it was very kind of them to repaint the columns to rouge for you. Nice shot.

Alexa said...

There's something so romantic about train travel—and even more so in Europe! Wonderful shot, V.
Daryl -- me too!

Harriet said...

Great perspective and I love the Paris Rouge. You know how to tug on the heart strings of all francophiles!!!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I am a big HP fan and that was my first thought in seeing your shot... Station 9 3/4 must be nearby! Beautiful shot, V.

VP said...
