Un magazine ? Un journal ?

In February, I showed you the newsagent and sort of promised I would show you what the booths looks like from the outside...
---------------------------------
En février, je vous montrais le monsieur qui vend des journaux, tout promettant vaguement de vous montrer le kiosque de l'extérieur...

Our computer hard drive crashed this month; then, my camera stopped auto focusing. We've been dealing with technology more than being online. Our bookmarked list of blog friends was lost with the hard drive. Hearing from people like you, Dina, Hilda, Babooshka, etc. is making it easier to establish the old address list!

The bal de Versailles looks fabulous. What are the dates for it? Is it always a certain time of year? Is it open to he public? Sounds like something fun to attend and photograph!!

I think these are so much a part of the fabric of an urban environment.

Do you use the work 'kiosk' referring to these booths? I think we do here, even when drinks are not sold. Lisbon had the most beautiful old kiosks, which are (gladly!) being restaured and replaced in their original spots. Thank you, Ciel, you just gave me a great idea!... :-)))

My pleasure JM! Yes, they are called "kiosques à journaux"!

These kiosks are "cool" - I loved them in Paris...of course they sold a lot of junk, but also lots of good stuff...and what the heck, tourists need junk and other stuff to bring home...

Ah, this reminds me so much of charming France!

I can smell the air. I am ready to book my tickets! I love going to France.

Lovely picture of a street scenery! I would like to thank you for reminding us to take a time, reminding us to be easy going in our lives and stop to notice these details that are so integrated in our day-by-day!We need to have eyes to observe what is around us!Beautiful picture and post!

Un petit air parisien....et d'autrefois...
Ils sont chouettes, ces Kiosque à Journaux.

I love to see pictures of France. I want to go again but for now pictures are all I have. Thanks for sharing.

There aren't too many news agents like that anymore. Oh, you see them in railroad stations and airports, but not on the street like here.

Is un magazine kosher? The french language police may get after you:)

Steffe said...

The Swedish word for this is Tidningskiosk, but the ones in Stockholm are more like big cafe's I think I prefer it your way.

cieldequimper said...

@ Clueless: yes, it is the French word!

Dina said...

Sweet!
Your picture makes me realize how I miss holding a newspaper or magazine in the hand, instead of just reading them on the screen.

kiosque un sentiment de lecture je vois un magasine qui aurais pu m'interresser le Japon inconnu, les yeux sur tout Versailles...
