Automne à Montmartre


Cobblestones, falling leaves, stone wall, lamp post, ochre walls, and those white mums marching down the hill.

Today we're joining Paulita's DREAMING OF FRANCE meme right here!

Very strong technique in this image. The composition is outstanding. Great lines to carry the eye into the image. The provide three dimension depth. The light throughout is perfect and the autumnal tones are terrific. Bravo!

Peter Olson said...

Fantastic photo! Almost in season; not quite - there are still a few more leaves left! :-)

This scene feels melancholy yet cals to me. Fabulous. I hope you'll consider playing along with my meme Dreaming of France on Mondays. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

Mary said...

Oooooo! Wow. Is it possible to fall completely in love with a scene. Methinks it is. Because i am. :) Magnificent photograph, Virginia!

Virginia said...

May I just thank you ALL for your dear comments. I often try to second guess what you will all like. Perhaps I just need to go with the images of Paris that make my heart sing and hope they do the same for you as well. As I've said many, many times, the photographs I share here on this blog are images that evoke a special memory for me. Sharing them is a delight.
