Le Relais Odéon - une grande brasserie


Le Relais Odéon
Rue du Jardinet


This famous Paris brasserie has an address on Boulevard Saint-Germain
but there is back entrance on Rue du Jardinet as seen here.


The weather worsened as the day progressed, 
but the rain made for moody photos on the rain-soaked, cobbled streets.

Hi Genie,

That's a lovely view of the street! Black and white is a good choice.

Célébrissime ! Merci de me faire battre le pavé en ta compagnie ; j'aime bien tes photos, tu sais... Elles me rappellent beaucoup de souvenirs.

Beautiful shot! This would make a perfect postcard via your camera! :) Love it!

Alexa said...

Terrific! Shot in black and white like this, your photo looks as though it could have been taken 50 or 60 (or more) years ago—except for the %&*#^ grafitti, of course. (Atget didn't have to put up with it; why should you?)

Starman said...

You're right about the moodiness. Finally, a photo in B&W that I actually like!

Sim said...

Really lovely! I'm so glad I've discovered your blog. New follower.

The rain did get worse over the next five hours but the photo opportunities got better and better. This one was taken under an overhang so there was no danger of my camera getting (too) wet.

I carry an "underwater" camera for the very rainy moments and it was put to good use that day!

Sim, nice to see you here. Merci beaucoup.

Alexa, I really should have cropped out the graffiti on the left but there was not much to be done with that on the other side of the alley.

Bises,
Genie

A fantastic shot, chere Genie!

Wishing you a fabulous day...

This was probably a lousy day to be out and about, but the glistening light off the cobblestones made this a very good day for photos. Now, THIS is one we can agree about showing in B&W.

J'adore! Very Doisneau..

James said...

J'adore!

C'est la cour du commerce Saint-André, non?

Stan said...

Oh, to have wet cobblestone streets to work with!!! That wall/ledge on the left takes you into the picture -- I wouldn't have cropped it [maybe burn the bright portion of the ledge a bit]. Great diagonal lines.
