Weekend Reflections: tissus et passages piétons

Fabrics and a chair: an upholsterer's shop at the corner of Mazière and Orangerie streets with the criss-cross of cobblestones and zebra crossings is this week's contribution to Weekend Reflections.

The cobblestones are very nice. It looks like another set of crosswalk stripes or a shadow of a fence on the chair.

les tissus est très belle!

We do not have any pedestrianized shopping streets. They are rare in America but there are a few. However, I've seen them all over Europe, East Asia and the parts of South America we have visited. It's so civilized. What does that say about my country?

I can get my shoes made and the sofa recovered all in one stroll down the boulevard!

So many patterns, I like it! It's a study in shapes and color, real and unreal.

Cezar and Léia said...

I've enlarged the picture ( in fact twice) and it's amazing, so many details!
By the way I love those fabrics, beautiful colours!
**Have you tried any different project in your Singer machine, like for instance, some Summer dress? ;)
***Aujourd'hui, j'ai l'intention de rester dans ma maison et je ferai tout ensemble notre link de réflexes (si possible ) et je remarque si tout va bien, ça va!

Versailles concurrence le marché St Pierre ?
Il est à noter que Jouy en Josas et sa célèbre toile sont à proximité. Lorsque ma fille a fait ses études à Toulouse j'ai été à la recherche de tissu africain pour les rideaux et j'ai eu bcp de mal à trouver, il y aurait cela dans cette boutique colorée ?

ça ajoute un tissu rayé, ou ça fleurit le pasage piéton, c'est selon!..:)

VP said...

I'm a bit confused by the reflection, but the colors are wonderful!

Jacob said...

Perfection! There's so much to see here. I've been staring at it so long I now must go take a nap and come back to it later! :-)

B SQUARED said...

I'm always pleased when Zebras can find a place to cross the street safely.

EG Wow said...

Quite a lot of lines and shapes here and the colours are pleasing to the eye!

Super comme reflet. Il y a tellement de choses dans cette photo. Je pense que je pourrais facilement revenir et voir des choses que je n'ai pas remarquées la première fois.

Bon weekend !

There is a lot going on in that picture, but with beautiful fabrics, cobblestones and zebra crossings, it's a wonderful reflection photo.

We certainly respect life when we accept the details that capture our attention in any given moment.

The lines in the reflection give the shot a interesting dimension. Very cool shot!

Francisca said...

Ciel, this was worth a visit just to laugh out loud at the comments of VP, Jacob and B Squared... les hommes... I see a lovely blending of the colors in the fabrics with the black and white stripes of the reflection. Well done.

Très jolies ces réflexions ; les surfaces vitrée, ça crée vraiment du sens sur certains clichés, décidément...
