La rue est presque déserte et il pleut... Mais quel charme, ces vieilles rues pavées mouillées. L'ambiance est toute autre que lorsque le soleil trace des ombres. Mais, à deux sous un même parapluie, quel bonheur aussi!Bonne nuit à toi, Genie!
Hi, I can see I have email from you but I can't read it. My gmail is just sitting there. It is exasperating! Maybe tomorrow it will work. Shelley
I'm with you Genie! -any day in Paris is beautiful.
Polished perfectly by the rain!
I didn't even look at your caption but saw the photo and this is exactly what I thought...Genie --- perfect and I love the black and white.
You got that right, sister! Love the little bit of light reflected off the slick paving stones (and pretty much everything else about this b&w beauty).
Paris looks so beautiful - even in the rain. x
Awesome ! I like this perspective and these shiny greys are beautiful !
Excellent photo Genie. The stones look slippery.
This evokes memories of museum visits,shopping and things one does on a rainy day in Paris.Beautiful photo Genie,love the textures of the stones.......and B/W suits this so well.Rx.
It sure does! What a wonderful picture to relect on.
beautiful shot, love B&W!
The light is perfect in this picture and I also love the perspective!Wonderful shot!bisesLéia
Lovely shot, Genie. You are such a talented photographer.
Moi j'aime pas la pluie, mais j'avoue que les reflets sur les pavés donnent envie de faire des claquettes !Ce matin dans l'église St Roch il y a eu les obsèques d'une grande actrice française, Annie Girardot.
A walk alive with rain's reflective beauty ~ Have a lovely weekend ~ xox Alexandra
Gorgeous picture and lighting. I'm in agreement--when in Paris, walking in the drizzle is an adventure to be savored!
Everything about this photo is perfect: long perspective, beautiful reflection, b&w...great work.
Lovely photo. Yes, some places still look beautiful even in the rain.
...and not a tourist in sight! That's even better yes? !
You can say that again! I remember dragging my suitcase in the drizzle that first morning...it was just getting light. Worn out but so very glad to almost be at the apt. door! Thanks for the memoires G.V
Completely agree! Gorgeous photo, love the back and white!
well said! this evokes mid-century paris to me and is simply wonderful. the pattern of the cobblestones and reflective light on the rain soaked surface is mesmerizing.
I like this one a lot Genie.
I love pictures with rain! people usually don't take photos under the rain, bu it give a special mood to places that I love..
How silly of me -- I forgot to comment on your photo!I love it. I love the rain and the B/W. Wonderful!
I do so agree with you, Genie!! Perfect reflection for the day, a real classic! Enjoy a fun weekend!Sylvia
So true! Paris has a special charm on rainy days. I love the look of the wet street and black and white was the right choice imho.
Wonderful shot Genie!!! Love the angle...the glistening street...the B&W...the lone person walking...all contribute to a wonderful composition!!!
I love this shot! It's my favorite of the day so far!Patrick Tillett, Extremely Overdue
Fantastic one!Happy weekend reflections. Regina
Yes, strange how a rainy day can look that beautiful!!! Those buildings...sigh! Have an absolutely lovely weekend, my friend!Kristin xo
Yes, that's a typical street side of Paris, but...rain is rain anywhere, as we had it 3 days in a row there:)
Beautiful! And a rainy day in Paris also beats a rainy day in Jackson. ;)
I bet it does indeed. I must travle to Paris one day. Love your image. Magnificent.
It's a beautiful photo and so stylish!Have a great weekend:)Joo
Rain - liquide sunshine.Must have been a wonderful sound while walking down that way. Please have a good start into the weekend.daily athens
Always love the sheen of rain on cobblestones.
I love those cobblestones. Your angled perspective works here, as does the black and white. But, a rainy day in Paris beats a sunny day where you are? This might be going a bit far.
A miserably day makes for a great day photo-shooting.
Yes, and the b&w works just fine with this
It almost looks like the sun is shining on the buildings in the background.
Funny how one can fall in love with wet paving stones. Ok, it helps that they are in Paris.Very subtle reflection, works well in monochrome, could step right into that scene. After opening an umbrella...
Yes, Paris is wonderful in the rain or sunshine! You have a fabulous blog! Thanks for showing us Paris.
The patterns and textures glow so beautifully in the rain! Stunning photo!
Beaucoup de finesse et de romantisme dans cette image. Je l'aime !
I am in the whirlwind of Mardi Gras here with a home full of revelers old and young! I have visited each of your blogs and welcome new commenters cheerfully. I treasure your comments, all!Nathalie says above in her comment that the funeral for revered French actor Annie Giradot was held at Église Saint-Roch (on the left in the photo) on March 4th (Friday). You should check out her career.I hope that each of you have a wonderful week ahead.Bisous,Genie
This translates wonderfully in black and white!
Sally -- Thanks for your comments and I hope that you will visit again soon! Bises...
The cobblestone pavement is beautiful. Wonderful shot, Genie.
JM -- Merci, and it looks so clean compared to many streets. Glad you like it!
