Rue de la Paroisse

No permanent damage to the knee, time will heal it. The camera is another story. It was only a small Canon Ixus and it's almost cheaper to buy another one. I'll see to it when I can walk better. In the meantime, more photos taken in May. One of the busiest shopping streets in Versailles is this one, with what I think are lovely classical façades.
---------------------------------------
L'une des rues les plus commerçantes de Versailles est la rue de la Paroisse, avec un alignement de façades classiques. Encore une photo de mai, a priori je vais devoir racheter un appareil. Ce n'était qu'un petit Canon Ixus, le faire réparer coûterait 25€ de moins que de racheter le même modèle année 2009... Je m'en occuperai dès que je pourrai mieux gambader.

You sure had beautiful blue skies in May...and this like a wonderful street for window shopping...those windows look beautiful!

I hope you feel better soon and have the equipment to bring us more photos of Versailles, like this one. There are few shopping streets like this in the US. Most of have to go to a strip mall.

Well, I am very pleased to know you ultimately will heal up without surgery! Just take it easy and please don't try to run a marathon! Unless its in NYC... ;-)

Cameras - yes, great buys at $200 or get a refurbished Nikon D40 at Adorama for $395.

I like this shot very much, but then I like everything French so sometimes I'm not too discriminating...

Take good care of yourself, please!

alors réponse du toubib ?
Pour les APN, souvent cela coute moins cher de racheter un nouveau, que de faire reparer (ah la societe de consomation). Hier, petite pensée pour toi, c'etait mon tour d'aller voir le dentiste ;o)

I hope your healing time will not be too long.

The houses are nice, especially the one with the stones.

I used to have an Ixus. Creat cameras I think.Prices have gone down a bit lately so I hope you can afford another one.

C'est une bonne nouvelle pour les genoux ! Quant à l'appareil c'est que du matériel et même si c'est embétant ça se remplace plus facilement qu'un genoux.

The trouble with traveling is there simply is never enough time. The palace commands a full day, and your city many more days to see the sites. Thank you for this virtual tour. I hope you get plenty of rest and heal your knee quickly.
