Rue de la Montagne Sainte-Geneviève - le travailleur

2012 Jan 15 2nd_0440

Le travailleur

Color-matched for the job at hand, 
this worker made a nice contrast to the stark winter scene.

May you not work too hard this week 
and take time to enjoy your surroundings, 
wherever they may be.

Rue de la Montagne Sainte-Geneviève
(just across from the steps of Saint-Étienne du Mont)
75005, Paris

Ah, he is a nice spot of color on a winter day, isn't he!! Hope you have a lovely week wherever you may be this week! Enjoy!

Joe said...

Thank for your good wishes Genie. May your week be filled with sunshine.

Winter seems an unlikely time to be doing repair work outside.

Re-painting the fence?..The kind of thing I'd rather do in spring or summer, especially when living in Paris.

The colour of his coat is amazing, think he should just stay there and become part of the scenery :-) Have a great day Diane

Daryl said...

is he sprucing things up for us? cant wait!

Stan said...

What a delightful catch! The splash of color in the green bucket nicely complements his blue attire. The naked branches leave no doubt as to the season. Hugs, Stan.

He must be brave to attempt a job like that in winter.

My serounding was this saterday, les montagnes au loin. Participant à un coffre ouvert. je vends les trésors de mon atelier de décoration et de mon grenier. C'est fou ce que l'on peut accumuler.

Pour vous amuser, allez voir * anibis suisse, decoratrice1 * ce que je peux mettre en photos à la vente sur Internet.

Par contre j'avais montré des crayons géants sur mon blog. Par ce biais j'ai appris que Google récupère toutes les images. Grâce à ce système, un photographe Français, qui désespérait d'en trouver, a pu les acheter chez moi et m'en débarrasser. Ouf ! Ca c'est positif.

His smock is very close to the color they call French blue, n'est-ce pas? This spot is about a block from where I used to live. Le grand sigh.

You can't miss that blue coat.

The man dresses very nattily for his work, doesn't he? Nice image, Genie. And best wishes to YOU, too, for a good week.
