Samedi matin, avenue de Paris


Avenue de Paris on Saturday morning, before the snow turned to icy rain.

Avant que la neige ne se transforme en pluie.

I'm sorry, Ciel, but I'm glad I'm not there now. We're getting a blast of arctic air in the next couple of days which will bring our nighttime temps down into the 20s (f)and I hate it...snow and ice would merely aggravate the situation!

I will admit, however, that your photos are quite attractive and almost make the snow look like fun...the operative word here being "almost."

By the by...9,000 feet is about 1 3/4 miles high. (5,280 feet being equal to one mile).

You must be feeling much better and I hope for you a very nice week ahead!

I think it's very beautiful, Ciel! I LIKE snow, at least this time of year. :)

I'll take Jacob's place, I love snow :-)

They are very elaborate benches, love the details.

La premiere photo avec la neige qui tombe et la perspective de la rue est magnifique. La passante sur un cote et le banc de l'autre est tres bien aussi. Je la verrais bien accrochee au mur...

The top photo makes me thing of a Robert Frost poem that ends the woods are lovely, dark and deep / But I have promises to keep / And miles to go before I sleep / And miles to go before I sleep.

Metric makes all kinds of sense but miles is a much better word than kilometers.

These are so beautiful. I think you should use the first on as your "Years Best" photo!

J'adore cette situation revenir en enfance avec des boules de neige avec des amis.

SRQ said...

Love that first photo! Those snowflakes look quite large. Charming atmosphere.

T. Becque said...

J'étais sur Paris hier AM la pluie m'a prise dès que je suis sortie du métro Pasteur, après c'était gadoue gadoue...

*Elles semblent du siècle dernier et sont super bien cadrées...

Beautiful images. MB

Malyss said...

La première, tu coupes la dame et ça fait une fabuleuse carte postale pour tes voeux de Noel!
Y a pas à dire, dès qu'il y a un banc sur une photo, c'est la classe!! :o)

Countdown to Christmas! I have always been ambivalent about the snow: I like it for some time but the 'after' is awful!

Cezar and Léia said...

Et les contre-allées en gadoue.....

I think Bob's right, the perfect photograph to accompany Frost's poem. The bottom one reminds me of Cartier-Bresson. Well done.

So beautiful! I love the tall trees and the avenue.

Jack said...

Lovely scenes, Ciel. It is remarkable how many bloggers are talking about snow where they are. But, I have lived in the nortern U.S. for a long time, and my tolerance for cold weather and slippery roads is limited.

Have a good week.

James said...

Great shots! The top one is a work of art! I wish that it would snow here.

Rob and Mandy said...

Quite nice.

Sharon Van Lieu said...

What beautiful scenes, Ciel. We have gotten pretty cold here but no snow!

I like tree-lined avenue.
