Pont Louis-Philippe - Île Saint-Louis

Pont Louis-Philippe


Yes, the rain was relentless, 
but Paris keeps moving without regard to the weather.


This stone arch-bridge connects the Quai de Bourbon 
on the Île Saint-Louis with the Saint-Gervais neighborhood on the right bank.  
It is decorated with stone laurel wreaths 
surrounding metallic rosettes which are best seen from the Seine.

Glad that people in France don't pay attention to the weather any more than we, here in the northwest do!! It is gray and grumpy here, but it's been a good week!! Take care, Genie!!

The cyclist and the man with the brief case seem oblivious to the weather ... Unlike the others huddled under their umbrellas. Love the sheen in the cobblestones. Bon-weekend everyone regardless of the weather!

This picture has a certain timeless quality that I love. You know how to take an annoyance (rain) and turn it into a blessing (atmosphere). Brava, Genie.

I do love this -- rainy and gloomy but quite wonderful!

In colors, this pic would have been simply pretty. In B&W, it's absolutely gorgeous! Great choice!

When he lived in Paris, «Louis» crossed this bridge many times! It is nice to see it once again!

My favorite rainy day thing is counting the number of people who are carrying umbrellas but not using them.
