La rue de la Paroisse, lumières de Noël


Rue de la Paroisse with Christmas lights. On the second photo, you can just about see the domes of Notre-Dame church.

Sur la seconde photo, on voit les dômes de Notre-Dame.

This night time shot is so festive. I want to walk that street.

I love all the lights drooping across the street. But what I love most is how lively this street is. Here our downtown goes to sleep after the workers go home.

de belles illuminations, qui me font toujours penser a une toile d'araignée

Jacob said...

Very festive even if very cold! Lots of people out and about it would appear. Nice night shots, Ciel. Again, you must have very steady hands!

La 1ere est particulierement jolie, il ne fait pas encore nuit et il y a une belle ambiance avec toutes ces lumieres.

Woody said...

I like how the lights are strung and the alternating colors. The stars add a nice touch.

Randy said...

Looks festive, love the stars.

Jack said...

I love seeing cities dressed up for the holidays.

Real men DO wear pink.

Are all areas decorated so nicely or just certain parts? We don't see much street decoration here, although people have really taken to "lighting" up their homes!

I like this time of year with the cold dark evenings, the Christmas lights, and then to come home and "cwtch" up in the warm. [ a bit of Welsh for you there].

Bonjour chère Ciel!
J'imagine le sentiment de bonheur dans le coeur, quand vous pouvez marcher dans une rue comme ça.
Charmants décorations et les lumières sont romantiques!

It's good to think of Versailles of a plece where is actually cold now. My only memories are so different...

Malyss said...

J'aime les rues le soir, illuminées, quand les gens sortent des bureaux et rentrent, il y a une ambiance particulière..

SRQ said...

I can feel the hustle and bustle of shoppers going to and fro trying to finish their all errands. Love that first shot -- very festive!

Jacob said...

Bonjour!

Re your comment on Florida Fotos: It is an old photo, scanned. I do believe, however, that nothing has changed.

The "Open" sign is necessary because if there is bad weather or high seas with rip currents or sharks about, they shut these places down - in fact, sometimes they will shut down the beaches for swimming.

Hope you're having a great day!

Versailles looks as if it does Christmas very well. xxxx

Francisca said...

Your streets are in charming holiday spirit... and you remind me I need to go out and capture the light here too. If only I didn't dread the pre-xmas shopping traffic... it's insane.

EG Wow said...

It sure looks like Christmas! Very nice night shots, Ciel!

Catherine said...

On va dire que la paroisse est en fête, quoi de plus normal en période d'avent.

paulboo said...

Some very elegant and sophisticated lighting there, I like it a lot.

Becky said...

You really know how to make me long for a European Christmas, don't you? :(

Kaori said...

LOVE the first shot...Christmas in France must be so gorgeous!
