I love the look of cobblestones, but walking on them really hurts my feet, as I discovered when we were in Europe this spring, and again in Russia this month.

This is pretty, nice idea with the cobblestones leading back.

Ces paves ont beaucoup de charme. Je remarque que tu aimes les vignettes :) ici ca donne un petit air retro.
Une jolie enseigne de boulanger plus bas.

I like the look of cobblestones and it is not hard for me to navigate them, but I would hate to be a woman in high heels trying to walk on the stones.

I love the look of cobblestones. This looks like an old neighborhood.

Dianne said...

Walking on cobblestones with heels is ouch!! but they look so gorgeous!

Randy said...

Like Regina I like the look too. Haven't tried it in heels though.

Avec les images des inondations en tête, c'est vrai qu'au premier coup d'oeil, on voit un genre de vagues deferler!
je marche à plat, sans talon, mais mes pires pavés ont été ceux de Rome, massacre de chaussures!

It looks like the grass is battling the cobblestones to see ifit can reclaim the street.

Une ancienne échoppe, non ?
Je faisias collec de pavés, j'en ai des tout petits (et jolis), en marbre Pragues, en granit de de Berlin, j'ai des galets d'un peu partout mais à présent qu'ils sont importés de Chine, cela n'a plus le même charme...

They certainly do have that 'ripply' kind of look Ciel! Always amazes me how grass and weeds seem to find their way into every situation..Btw I don't do much running myself Ciel, walking is just so much more enjoyable oui!!

Dina said...

Wavy is right. A place of puddles after a hard rain?

Woody said...

Lovely and charming. I'm only aware of a few cobblestone streets still in existence around these parts. It's amazing to think every stone was hand set so many years ago. When's the last time there was a pothole in one of these streets?

Doug Hickok said...

We have a couple of wavy cobblestone streets too. They are especially fun to drive over in a car, but one has to go very slowly. I like the setting in your image, it has charm :^)

I love cobblestones with their old fashioned charm. Might be difficult to walk, especially in high heels, but they look lovely:)

JM said...

Love the old cobblestones.

VP said...

This remind me of something I have seen recently...

Kaori said...

Love the random doors. Not one is the same :-)

Thérèse said...

Quel charme! Habiter à la ville dans ces conditions est un rêve pour beaucoup dont pour moi...

Halcyon said...

I like the colorful doorway too!

EG Wow said...

They just don't make streets like that anymore, hey? Charming...

[I can't say for certain, but I doubt Peles Castle puts on any shows, film or real, in its 60-seater theatre. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that Romania is an under-appreciated and under-marketed destination, for locals or outsiders.]
