Les feuilles mortes...

Autumn in Montreuil neighbourhood, looking towards Saint-Symphorien church a couple of weeks ago...

I particularly like the blue details of the church.

I would love to be sitting on one of those benches!

Randy said...

These are both very nice shots.

Yep, the old death and resurrection metaphor.

Autumn it may be, but at least the sun is still shining!

En ce temps-là, la vie était plus belle et le soleil plus brûlant qu'aujourd'hui.

I like the autumn colors set against that blue roof.

Birdman said...

The hustle and bustle of a fall day. The merry-go-round never slows down it seems.

Kate said...

Looks like nature is taking care of those leaves!

This period of the year always reminds me of Ungaretti's short poem “Soldati” (Soldiers): “Si sta come / d’autunno / sugli alberi / le foglie” (One is / as in the fall / on the trees / the leaves).

That first shot is just excellent and makes me want to stroll along with you enjoying the autumnal air and the other various sights!

The trees are getting ready for a long winter's sleep.

RedPat said...

It is such a texturally beautiful time of year!

Halcyon said...

Lots of scenes like this in Berlin right now too!

I wonder if there are any leaves on the trees now. The colour comes and goes too fast!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Leaves should be required to stick around for a minimum of 4 weeks after changing color.

That street is going to leek a lot different when the leaves depart. It is probably the kind of street that has charm in each of the four seasons.
