Square Lamome (ou Lamôme, je ne sais pas...)


I discovered this seemingly recent little public garden in Porchefontaine neighbourhood during a sunny Sunday walk. I made the most of it because this winter has been so rainy and gloomy. I liked the benches and shadows, including a shadow of yours truly!

J'ai découvert ce square qui semble récent à Porchefontaine lors d'une promenade dominicale ensoleillée (chose rare en ce début d'année). J'aime bien les bancs et les ombres, y compris celle de votre servitrice !

Must have been late afternoon. A very nice park and I love the sunlight as well as the shadows. Are the ramps for wheelchairs?

Re your question on Florida Fotos: Yes, it is a picnic area in our daughter's back yard...I'll post some more photos soon.

Cute! Looks more like someone's private garden than a public spot. Guess not many people know about it, or perhaps things would be more worn. :)

Randy said...

Wow it's so green! I love the shadows too.

I almost thought is was an outdoor store because everything looks so new. It looks like a nice place to visit and relax.

Mais oui, the shadows and sunlight are just right. Very nice.

The first one is particularly well composed and lit. It draws the viewer in. The incomplete chair makes me wonder what's going on to the right of the frame.

What an enticing place! I love the freshness of it, as I sit here wondering when the snow will be gone.

So fresh and green. Would love to sit and soak up some sunshine.

en effet avec le soleil sur les bancs, cela donne de belles ombres, il est bien sympathique ce parc

Dina said...

Not one's usual lush garden but lots of new benches.

Dave said...

It looks as if its been recently refurbished. Good access for wheel chair users

You have found the benches' paradise!

Gunn said...

I am glad VP found the benches!:)

Well, I love the way you have photographed/created these images.
You have really got much out of light and shadow as well as colors and shapes.

A pretty little park and a nice sunny day.

Very nice. It's looks a great place to beat the crowds of the city and take the load off. I like that is is nice and green and I like the line of the privacy fence.

What a lovely little discovery you and your shadow made.

I am wondering about the comment about Edith Piaf...did she live in this area? The neighborhood that I mentioned a while back when you were featuring this neighborhood is LeChesnay, I believe. Near the huge shopping center. I loved the winding streets from the shopping center to the Chateau Area in Versailles.

A beautiful array of benches and shadows.

It looks a little like a garden centre because it's all so new!

SRQ said...

Isn't it fun discovering a new place like this?!

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Ciel, I like how you included only a part of the chair. It makes for a bit of mystery.
