Le tapis de feuilles mortes, avenue de Paris


It was a November weekend... on Avenue de Paris. Not particularly cold, but wet.
----------
Ce fut un weekend de novembre. Pas froid, juste mouillé.

One of the things I used to love to do in Rhode Island was walk on leaf strewn sidewalks, dragging my feet through the fallen leaves. This looks like a perfect weekend to me. Rain and all.

Burrrr, I just got a chill. Beautiful, but chilly.

Sharon said...

This is such a beautiful scene. I love it.

It LOOKS wet...but beautiful too. :)

Jacob said...

Look at that carpet of leaves! And if they're wet, walking through them would be like sloshing through snow...sort of. I'm sure we drove down this street on our way to Versailles, right? So beautiful!

What a beautiful walk. So thought provoking.

It's like a dream. The color of the leaves is almost shocking; I think I might be like a kid and just run shamelessly through them!

magnifique couleurs automnales. Cette année nous sommes gates avec l'automne qui est magnifique (sauf qu'il arrete pas de pleuvoir, pleuvoir, pleuvoir, pleuvoir.........)

Nice .
I am getting envious of countries that have fall, fallen leaves, and wetness.

Olga said...

Same here :)

These photos are extraordinary - they tell so well a story of a quiet autumn day.

I also like the red spots of a shawl, an umbrella, a car, and even a shopping bag. Wonderful capture, thanks for sharing.

Diane said...

I could fancy a walk down that street, kicking through the leaves, then darting into a cafe for a cup of french coffee.Instead, I am off on a dreary course with work which will BORE me to death xxxx

VP said...

I always like the colorful last hurrah of the dying leaves.

A beautiful and colorful "tapis"!
Here the weather is not so good as well, but Autumn scenery is always wonderful even in a rainy day!
hugs and a nice Tuesday

Gorgeous fall photo! If it weren't wet, I'd be kicking those colorful leaves around :-D

Catherine said...

Ca rougit sur tous les blogs ! Je reviens à la bonne saison. Si on pouvait nous mettre un peu d'éclairage dans le ciel pour sêcher tout cela, ce serait encore mieux.

Halcyon said...

A beautiful carpet! I love the color of the leaves, both on the trees and the sidewalk.

Wow this scene is breathtaking. An overwhelmingly lovely blend of aesthetics and nature!

Superbe cette vue automnale sur la rue un jour de pluie.

What a gorgeous street with autumn leaves. Who cares that it's wet!

James said...

Beautiful! The leaves on the ground remind me of what it's like here.

I don't think that you mentioned before that you go through Paris to get home.
I would have met you just about anywhere in the city. :(
