La Seine - un aire de pique-nique



La Seine
un aire de pique-nique


Having a picnic with friends along the Seine...
what could be any better?


I am honored to be invited to join the City Daily Photo Blogs, and with my acceptance, to participate in the first day of each month with "theme day."  November's theme is "The Water's Edge" and here is the link to visit other cities around the world.

Doesn't get any better than this, Genie, that's for sure! Hope your week has gone well so far -- it does sound as if it has!! Enjoy!

Je découvre votre blog grâce à votre commentaire sur le mien (Laërte, le père d'Ulysse).
Vos photos sont magnifiques et je vois que vous partagez avec moi la même passion pour la vue du Pont-Neuf depuis le Pont des Arts.
A bientôt.
Congratulations!

Hello Genie:
This of course appeals to us hugely - a picnic out of season. Very recently we suggested to some friends taking a picnic to the City Park and reading poetry aloud to each other. In the event it rained, and the pages would have been soaked!!

Congratulations on joining the Daily Photo Community. I don't know that there is much better than a pic nic by the Seine. Always a Paris highlight.

Would you please link your post to the Theme Day page on the City Daily Photo portal at http://citydailyphoto.org/index.html
Unlike the previous portal, this one does not automatically link you, but requires you to go in and enter your own details into a Linky. If you enter anything incorrectly, I will come through and fix it up for you.

I can't count the amount of bread, cheese, and wine I've consumed "au bord de la Seine" over the years. Thanks for bringing back some great memories, Genie!

Love this one, Genie! Your angles and your cropping are perfect! They serve to enhance the delightful scene.

Randy said...

Kristie Franklin said...

What a lovely image! Everyone looks so happy and seem to be enjoying the day. From the looks on the young man looking up it would appear that he noticed you taking this photo. :) Or not?

What an awesome Blog! I've added myself as your newest follower. I traveled to France (Aix and Paris) last fall and fell in love with all things French. I can believe it took me this long to get there. Hoping to go back soon, but in the meantime, I'll get my Paris fix through your wonderful blog! Happy Fall Ya'll from Houston, TX.

Sigh...I would love to be there. Congrats Genie.

Mary said...

This photo as a beautiful effect on me. I've always wanted to see Paris.. but now i REALLY want to see Paris. This picture of life there just 'does it' for me. :)

Vreni said...

Maybe we´ll have a pique-nique along the Seine one day?

Jack said...

They are making the most out of marginal weather.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

They're waiting to be first at the next Paris Plage.

Virginia said...

One day I'll actually walk down there and join those Parisians. It's a great photo op but I think it's an even better Paris experience.
