April City Daily Photo Theme Day: cobblestones


Not a very difficult task to find cobblestones in Versailles, they are everywhere and I have already shown some (the label 'cobblestones' will get you there)! These photos were taken on Avenue Nepveu, next to the palace, where you rattle and shake when driving! As the portal is still down, click here to view other takes on the theme or to take part! Happy April!

Pas difficile de trouver des pavés à Versailles pour ce thème du premier du mois de la communauté des City Daily Photo blogueurs. Ces photos ont été prises Avenue Nepveu, près du château. Comme le portail CDP n'est pas encore réparé, vous trouverez les participants ici. Bon mois d'avril !

This reminds me of growing up. Every Sunday, we'd go to church in New Castle and one of the roads was made of cobblestones. Not so good if you need to p :-(

Versaille is the perfect place to find cobblestones ... I remember walking in the palace grounds over all those cobblestones ... they look beautiful with such an olde-world charm. Lovely capture Ciel.

Happy April!!!

Jack said...

Yes, this was as easy for you as a theme day for "asphalt" would be for me!

Randy said...

Nice theme day shot. We don't have cobblestone here so I am sitting this one out.

Fabrizio Zanelli said...

You're right Ciel :-) In Europe we can easily find cobblestone almost everywhere. In France a village place I love so much is Locronan in Bretagne :-)

Bob Crowe said...

You did a good job with the theme - the red shoes have some zing. I wasn't inspired by the theme so I went off in another direction.

Jim said...

Wonderful cobblestones.

Too easy for a Versailles inhabitant methinks.. well done Ciel, these cobblestones look hundreds of years older than mine,and that's because...they are!!

Thérèse said...

Not a theme for everywhere...
Ah! If Versailles' cobblestones could speak!!!

You are so right, not difficult to find in France. I love your shots. Really bringing the cobbles up close and personal.

VP said...

It is not too hard to find cobblestones over there, sadly here they are disappearing...

Valladolid Daily Photo said...

Excellent choice, the pictures are beautiful.

Gunn said...

Creative and nice way to photograph the theme day photo.

Real SPRING where you are?

Lowell said...

Well-done, Ciel. I love to look at these cobblestoned streets, but hate to drive on them or even worse ride a bike on them!

I forgot the theme! I'm a bad person. Mea culpa. :-))

Cezar and Léia said...

When I say the scooter my first thought was about the "rattle and shake" part... :)
God bless you!

Birdman said...

They used to be everywhere here too, but now a thing of the past.

Leif Hagen said...

That's easy for you to say - difficult for us to find cobblestones over here! Bravo for your theme day photos!

Doug Hickok said...

These images are artfully seen... I like this minimalist style of photography :^)

SRQ said...

Oh, the choices you must have had for today's theme day! A wheel and heels with cobblestone -- nice.

Halcyon said...

Really nice. I knew I'd see the real deal in Versailles. :)

Small City Scenes said...

Yes you sorta know this place. We met right next door to the blue shop at the Blackbird cafe and Bistro. The blue shop was a dress shop called Marcy's. Both closed now. A sign of the times here. The long view is the road in front of the shops. You whizzed right on by---remember? MB

BaysideLife said...

Nice red shoes. Wonder how well they work on the cobbled sidewalk. I really like the second photo. I can almost feel the rattles and shakes.

Olivier said...

tu es reste combien de temps a quatre pattes pour faire ces photos ? ;) pas trop dur de se relever apres

Rob and Mandy said...

Y-a-t'il une plage sous ces paves? -)

Bergson said...

joo said...

I love it, but the owner of this beautiful high heels might not share my opinion:)
have a great week ahead!

Andrew said...

Wonderful to see... if you ever visit Chester I would love to be your guide.

Loree said...

I would never have thought of photographing cobblestones.

bfarr said...

and slippery when wet too! Nice shots, ciel.

EG CameraGirl said...

Cobblestones make such pretty roads.

Kaori said...

So jealous how you have so much cobblestones. They are hell on heals but I love them! :D

JM said...

Both compositions are pretty cool, Ciel!
