Froid, ce début 2010 !

2010 starts out coldly but it doesn't deter the tourists at the palace. These are lucky, it was sunny on Sunday, the first sunny day in a long, long time but you certainly still need your head covered and your gloves. Isn't this just an international, intercontinental pose? Don't we all look immediately wondering if we've got it right?
-----------------------------
Ce qui n'empêche pas les touristes d'affluer au château. Ceux-ci ont de la chance, il a fait beau dimanche, une journée à peu près ensoleillée dans un océan de grisaille. N'est-ce pas une pose internationale, même intercontinentale que de regarder vite si la photo est réussie ?

Oui je vois cela le froids à Versailles; par contre le temps de fait rien à affaire pour prendre des photos.

Jacob said...

Yes, but being in France and especially Versailles warms the heart!

hee hee
«Louis» has got to show this to Mme la Vache. She came to the U.S. from China with a 15 year layover in Japan... ;-)

«Louis» hopes to be able to bring her to France this coming fall.

Winter coats, but no gloves. And of course, white shoes! The well dressed tourist -:)

le froid n'a jamais effrayé un touriste asiatique
sinon à quoi sert que Canon et Nikon se décarcassent

Olivier said...

d'accord avec Bergson, froid ou pas, les Japonais sont comme les scouts, toujours ready ;)

J'ai vu a la tv qu'au japon, il y avait en ce moment une vague de froid sans precedent, avec des vents glacés qui correspondent à l'équivalent d'un mini typhon.. Alors ces deux là s'en sortent encore bien!

Well at least the sun is shining. MB

The cold has definitely not inconvenienced these intrepid visitors.

Serial photographers at work?
Froid ici aussi. 11 degres. Verification word for this comment: comerse. Which in spanish means something like to eat yourself, se manger soi meme. Well, les joies des word verifications!

What a GREAT photo! It's got so much of interest and the monotone works perfectly. I'm so into color right now, but this caught my attention - it's perfect!

It looks colder there than it is here, which I wouldn't have expected! I love the black and white, and the blurred edges-- rather dreamy for a picture of people taking pictures! So sorry, I've been terrible about responding lately, but ages ago you commented that you didn't think Bellingham would have a marina. There are a couple Bellinghams, but we are in the very Northwest corner of the US-- penned in on three sides by Canada, the Cascade Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean. Hope that helps!
