Paris Rouge - Evening on rue Arbalète


Since I was behind her ( on rue Mouffetard) I was able to focus on the shop up the way, without disturbing Madame and her friend at Café Mouffetard.

Beautiful street photo. Love the terrasses in the streets even in the dark.

Great capture. Rue de l'Arbaléte makes me think of L'Isola -- the restaurant where we have dined on several occasions thanks to you!

Une couleur qui donne un petit air mal famé.

Like the drama of this image. The cigarette, a hand, red, lateness, empty street....

I get huge spam. Alot of blogs have put the word verification back on.

Yes, like Malyss said, a French movie from the '60s. Actually, it reminds me of my Parisian life in the '60s (insert very large sigh here)—you captured the atmosphere perfectly, V! BTW, I turned off my WV. Does Blogger not know they're making us nuts?
