I love to have a look at the windows of all the expensive shops in Rue Saint Honoré.

Rainy nights make for fabulous reflections.

Jazzy mood!

There's something magical about Paris on rainy nights ... I think it's the way lights reflect off shiny wet cobble-stones.
This is a great capture Virginia .....makes me home-sick for that beautiful city.

This transports me to Paris - I feel as if I am walking behind the women inhaling the scent of the damp Parisian air. Thank you.

M said...

I can see why this is one of your faves ... It just glows (and I am sure the rouge doesn't hurt either!)

Speedway said...

Why doesn't a rainy night here have the same charm? It makes me homesick for Paris, and I've never been there!

And they watered down the streets just to give you reflections - nice!

Lovely shot with accents of rouge, and unless you tell me that silhouette is Mary, she "must be a French girl!"

Welcome home! I so look forward to your images each day; I'll join the chorus loving Paris in the rain~

There is a lot going on here..and I like it all...

Great capture of a rainy night in Paris. I wonder if the French girl is checking her phone for a text or checking her messages?

La pluie fait briller la nuit.

very atmospheric...

Starman said...

Not to worry, it looks like the rain has stopped.

Oui Genie...c'est moi!

And I can see why. Love those rain gutters in the street in the older parts of Paris. Even better when red with passion.

ARA said...

I love this ... so rouge :)

Easy to understand that it's one of your favourites! (... although I haven't yet seen the other hundreds, thousands your took during this latest (not last) trip!

Such great contrasts - The almost garish reflection of red lights, the very modern young woman's pose, and the way the rooftops recede in the background. Beautiful.
No wonder film directors will often ask for their locations to be wet down; the look is so dramatic.

Lovely.

La parisienne dans toute sa splendeur... Et dans son écrin de lumière, bien vu !
