La traversée du pont

Paris, France

In my opinion, there is no better place to walk in the rain than Paris.

  2. So true! And it's a good thing, too - or there'd be many days when nothing would get done! You've given me the courage to try to "sneak" some portraits of strangers - not as bold as you are, but I'm beginning. Thanks for the inspiration and thanks so much for linking up!

  3. I can imagine Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire strutting their stuff just there in your photo! Great post and image as always, James.

  4. Same feeling, but about London. And what about long sand beaches along the ocean ?...

  5. It's images like this that make me want to jump on the first plane over to Paris!

  6. Good rain shot; I like the shadows of the guy and the lamppost on the pavement.

  7. Wonderful street scene, especially in monochrome, it supports the rainy feeling.

  8. Rainy streets provide great opportunities for the street photographer. You have made good use of it here.

  9. You make it look so lovely! But we've had almost nothing but grey skies for something like a year now and I'm craving a bit of sunshine and warmth. I never thought I'd say that!

  12. Absolutely!! And, I have almost perfected it with so much experience (in the rain)! Last month when we were in Paris, we only saw a brief shower while we were on a bus crossing the Seine. By the time we arrived at our stop in the 6th, the sun was back out!! It really was a treat to have so many days without rain, first in Paris, and the in Budapest.

    The black and white is obligatory!

    Bises,
