Petit panorama

Avenue de Paris on Wednesday evening, under a clear blue sky (unfortunately I couldn't get the moon to fit in this photo). It was rather on the chilly side. What you see here is the town hall on the left and the Sofitel Pullman Hotel on the right, hiding behind the restored arch I have shown you here.

Avenue de Paris mercredi soir, sous un beau ciel bleu (malheureusement je n'ai pas pu cadrer la photo de telle sorte que la lune y apparaisse). Il faisait un peu frisquet. Ce que vous voyez, c'est l'hôtel de ville à gauche et l'hôtel Sofitel Pullman à droite, caché derrière l'arche restaurée que je vous montrais ici.

You live in such a stately city. Nice image.

This has a quality never seen on my continent. We are much younger and don't do the best job of preservation.

The building is adorable with all lights at night. I like a lot the motion in this image! Well done!
*** by the way, I didn't like the city of Marseille. :( but I liked a lot to visit the island "Château d'If" and the boat trips. This was very nice! It was a good idea to go out of the city.

A lovely view as the sun is setting. The hotel is very inviting.

The perfect time of day for photography - when the blue of the sky falls upon the earth! This is a truly beautiful photo - the light and colors are spectacular!

Pretty lighting and blue sky! You didn't really need the moon to make this beautiful. :)

Our blue sky is already gone, but we had some very interesting clouds today!

The gold and blue look wonderful together.

Glad you mentioned the arch, I thought it was part of the building...

How wonderful to walk through the old arch every time you enter the hotel, I'd stay there just for that reason alone .Ciel :)
