Beautiful shots, particularly the first one.

It looks cold but with the lights, quite festive! Poor Gen. Hoche, out there all alone!

Vous vous en donnez a coeur joie avec toute cette neige. On va finir par etre jaloux...

Woody said...

General Hoche need to put his coat on, he's going to catch a nasty cold ;-)

Really beautiful, especially with the lights draped between the buildings.

These are so beautiful. The first is just amazing.

Warm, muted, soft, inviting, and calm. Not always easy to achieve in snow!

Here's to another great year with the City Daily Photo community. Have you found your best of 2010 for Jan 1st?

You sent me running to my French dictionary for "tempête." Thanks for the new vocabulary word. And the gorgeous scene with those lighted swags in the background.

Pretty and cold but sorta festive. MB

I know the man, or better the soldier, because I grew curious about him crossing Avenue Hoche twice a day for days. I didn't remember he was from Versailles though.

J'aime bien le côté bleu que la neige donne au monde..On n'imagine qu'il y avait une tempête, ça a l'air si paisible sur la photo!

This looks magical with the lights and the snow.

I would find the transition from summer to winter such a challenge, Ciel. I suspect there is many a European who would trade their summer for our winter.

I will be in Paris come the end of March, so please have it all gone by then!

These winter images make me think of matisse and blue periods in a painter's palette. So wonderful.

Jacob said...

Re Claire's: I'm not positive, but I would guess this is a global company and it's the same outfit as is in your mall...

Having a good day, I hope?

Diane said...

Quite Magical. xxx

I need to go back to France, every time I see your photos I just get this feeling in my stomach like "Ohhh!" (a longing, not a pain! :)

SRQ said...

Love your first photo -- it has a dreamy feel to it. Very cool. And, I always smile when I see people holding umbrellas in the snow.

Jack said...

Both are lovely, Ciel. Stay warm!!!

Loree said...

It seems that Europe is in for a snowy and frosty winter. Hope you enjoyed your Christmas.

Louis la Vache said...

«Louis» thanks you for being out in la tempête to give us these lovely images. He hopes you treated yourself to a nice hot cup of chocolat a l'ancienne afterwards!

Leif Hagen said...

The evening lights and blue hues make it a wonderful photo - not to mention the extraordinary architecture!
Bonne annee'!

Gunn said...
