Parking

This is a late night shot of the underground public parking beneath Notre-Dame market. There's an original old Mini Cooper parked at the back! It was VDP's first car!

Tard le soir dans le parking souterrain du marché Notre-Dame. Il y a une vieille Mini Cooper garée au fond ! C'était la première voiture de VDP !

I have fond memories of riding in the back of my parent's mini cooper when we lived in England, years ago.

I like the Mini Cooper... but I have no idea if all six feet of me can get in one!

I wouldn't have thought of a parking garage as a place for a blog photo but it makes sense. This one is so modern and empty.

Parking in Europe is always a challenge for us, even though Carolyn and I have modest cars. We're used to wide open space.

Such a clever photo today. Nicely composed.

A friend has a Cooper Mini. I have been amazed to learn that they have lost os space inside. Yesterday I saw a new Fiat Abarth 500, which was really cool.

I wouldn't even mind a new Mini but the old ones are very cool!

Randy said...

Love that shot and the Mini too.

This is one very clean garage.

I love the Mini. They're status cars in Canada these days. One of my good friends has one, and my youngest brother has one, and they're both very proud of their cars.

You know me, my first reaction was, oi, isn't it dangerous down there at night.

@ Dina: no more, no less than in many other underground parkings. Probably less.

@ all: bear in mind this isn't a modern BMW mini. It's the real thing...

un petit coup de nostalgie (moi c'etait une 2cv). Parking avant (ou apres) la foule

EG CameraGirl said...

I think it would be very cool to drive a Mini!

Tanya Breese said...

it makes an interesting photo...mini coopers are getting a little popular over here. there's one a see often that is really cute, red with black/white checkered side mirrors :)

What a shiny floor. I've not seen that in any parking garage around here.

P.S., I'm not sure how one writes with an accent, either. =) I've been accused of having an accent but I don't write any differently than I talk.

Do you mean this is 'actually' your old car Ciel or you had one like it? Moi aussi, I loved it!

VP said...

And after that only Italian cars!

mais il me semblait avoir parqué ma voiture au 3389

Dina said...

Well, I'm glad you are not in an underground parking lot in Paris tonight. I'm just watching France 24.

That Mini Cooper is Yours. I thought this before I read your sentence.
My first car was also a Mini Cooper... :-)

cieldequimper said...

@ Karl: I've upgraded since :-). No it isn't my car!

Again, I have feeling of some movie scenery, it's a very nice image with beautiful perspective!I like the car!

The late night timing of your shot explains why there are so many empty spaces. I normally have to drive around these places until I'm dizzy, trying to find a spot!
