Deux parapluies


Two umbrellas
Quai Malaquais
(near Institut de France)



Looking down from Pont des Arts to the quai below, 
it seems that the rain was just nothing more than an annoyance
for these two tourists.


Travel tip for Paris:
Raincoat (imperméable) with a hood
Umbrella (parapluie)
An extra pair of shoes (chaussures)
Oh, and a waterproof camera (appareil photo)




Quai Malaquais
La Seine -  la rive gauche
75006, Paris

  3. Great as a black and white! I love the polka dot and cobblestone combo, and the partially broken black umbrella.

  4. The umbrellas and the cobblestones make this both interesting and special.

  10. And if you aren't lucky enough to have a waterproof camera, a dandy plastique "raincoat" made just for cameras!

  11. I could have told you these two were not "les demoiselles de Cherbourg," in spite of the umbrellas :-) Great shot, Genie! Love the black and white. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  13. Wonderful shot, Genie! And make sure those shoes will grip the slippery cobblestones so you don't wind up on your derrière, with a broken camera, like someone I know.

  14. You should have included warm outer wear. It gets quite chilly in Paris even in the "summer"!

  15. The snow up here would collapse an umbrella. Still, those two look so perfect in Paris.

  16. Parapluie is the best word, isn't it?
