July City Daily Photo Theme Day: Empty

I know, I know, I'm cheating. I couldn't decide which one of these photos to choose for Theme Day. So, you get two for the price of one, which I think is value for money in times of economic crisis! ;-) The top photo was taken near the covered market and the bottom photo inside said market. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants for this Theme Day.

Oui, je sais, je triche. En ce jour de thème, à savoir le mot "vide", je n'ai pas su choisir aussi en avez-vous deux pour le prix d'une, ce qui n'est pas si mal en ces temps de crise économique. La première a été prise près des Halles Notre Dame et la seconde, à l'intérieur de celles-ci.

C'est effectivement de la triche mais les deux photos sont belles et fonctionnent pour le thème du jour alors tu es pardonnée !

More 'empties' in the first photo, which I really like more.

Jacob said...

The first photo is just superb for its composition, color, and association with the theme of the day!

Neva said...

I like them both as well! I love what people come up with.

Happy Theme Day. I like the first one for theme day better than the second. An empty table and chair is perfect.

Care to share one of the peaches with «Louis»?

Although I love the second photo I will have to go with the majority and vote for the first photo as the Theme Day submission.

on peut espérer qu'avec la baisse de la TVA, les gens refréquenterons les restaurants et que l'on ne verra plus ces places vides

Tash said...

love them both. the 1st is so classy and casual and vibrant.

Dina said...

Did you buy all those peaches in order to get the nice photo? :)

alice said...

J'adore les pêches, je les achète par cageots entiers! Mais ce n'est pas moi la coupable cette fois, je le jure!

Hilda said...

I love the first photo! Just waiting for you and a friend to sit down, eat, drink and have a great time!

Catherine said...

Les clients sont tous partis pique-niquer de fruits frais. Et comme on les comprend !
Judicieuse idée.

The tables are empty because everyone is checking out the lucious fruit.

Two shots are wonderful. MB

What struck me, my eyes kept returning to the empty wine glasses.

La première me suffit car je sais que je vais craquer avec le contenu de la 2 éme

Both great shots but I lovedd the empty wine glasses at the empty tables!

Tanya said...

very nice 2 for 1!

Petrea said...

Delectable!

Jilly said...

Two great choices for today. Maybe there were figs in that empty box. I love the restaurant photo too - ready for the diners.

Nice:) I like both photos but the first one is more secret and full of waiting for something special:)

Both are very good shots, but the first one has a more empty feel, lonely actually. ;-)

I am so ready to sit down in that cafe. The table setting looks perfect. And being that it's empty, being served shouldn't be a problem. Both of your shots are great. Thank you for visiting Tampa DP. I hope you'll come again soon. - Frank

J'aime bien la photo des tables avec les chaises bleues. Une bonne idee pour le theme "vide"

bfarr said...

Both great shots. I love the blue and white contrast of table and chairs.

Lisa Wilson said...

Great photos! I like the empty wine glasses.

Greg said...

Nothing wrong with two for the price of one!

Leif Hagen said...

Salut encore! Looks like a wonderful place for lunch. You'd be very lucky to find it EMPTY to get the first choice of seating! Let's eat!
