Les bouquinistes sous la pluie




The bouquinistes were open on this rainy October day
selling to the tourists who braved the weather.


The very old books, journals, and cards are kept in the back of the stall, 
protected from the rain.

Bonjour chère amie,

Il est triste effectivement de flâner sous la pluie... Il est si bon pourtant de feuilleter un vieux livre, regarder tranquillement de vieilles cartes postales avec le soleil en prime.
Hier chez moi le soleil était de rigueur et les températures douces aussi... J'ai flâné dans les sous-bois...
Une belle photo...
Gros bisous

It looks like dreary winter weather is upon you now.

Sous la pluie ou au soleil, c'est toujours agréable.

Hi Genie,

We are starting to get this sort of weather here in Malaysia as the annual rainy season comes again!

Beautiful...sometimes things look so pretty sous la pluie...But I'm sure the boucainistes find those days difficult...

I'd rather be there in the rain than not there at all. However . . .

Being under the rain in Paris is never a problem. But of course, bouquinistes surely prefer a bright sunny day.
