Rue Daubenton - les fleurs et les fruits



2013 0523 Thurs_226DSC_6442 (2)


Rue Daubenton


The grill of such interesting design and the boxes of flowers 
might have been missed but 
the white background of window shutters 
provided a lovely backdrop.


I got off of my Velib to take this photo
 as I am not steady enough 
to ride without hands while I click and shoot.


C'est vrai!


Rue Daubenton
75005, Paris

Jeanie said...

Thank you for not riding with no hands. Freaks me out!

This is a stunner of a shot with the color, the contrast and grille. And once again, a good reminder to keep looking up!

Lovely grill detail and find! Our town ended its "velib" program alas, but nearby New York just launched theirs:)

On peut y voir aussi des escargots.

I once took a photo while riding my bicycle. It is not something I recommend. I could have killed myself!
