Les derniers feux de l'automne

Saturday was rather drab and dreary until the sky brightened slightly mid-afternoon, which is when VDP went grocery shopping in Montreuil neighbourhood's main street. It was cold (ooooh VDP loves the cold!) The last colours of autumn nicely framed Saint-Symphorien church and complemented the red bricks of this house!

Samedi dernier il a fait plutôt moche jusqu'à ce que le ciel s'éclaircisse en milieu d'après-midi. C'est le moment qu'a choisi VDP pour aller faire son marché chez les commerçants de la rue de Montreuil. Il faisait froid (VDP adore !) Les derniers feux de l'automne encadraient joliment l'église Saint-Symphorien et complémentaient les briques de cette maison !

Very beautiful autumn images. The red leaves look so pretty against the stone building in the first image. I love the red facade in your second.

I can't decide which is better, the bricks or the leaves, both really pop.

Both photos are very very nice, I like especially the second one with the red autumanl colors of the tree and the red bricks.

I love the touch of red! We still have lots of color here in Berlin. I was at the Tiergarten again today and was amazed at how the leaves are still hanging on. :)

James said...

I like both photos and I also like cold fall days. :-)

The red leaves do indeed complement the red of the house. Glad the sun came out at mid day for you.

Loree said...

Oooh I see from your side-bar that it is indeed very cold. Lovely, warm colours in your photo though.
