Londres ?

Moulins de Versailles Mills Jack the Ripper
Not so very long ago, Geoff in Wanstead posted a great Spitalfields (East London) Jack the Ripper style photo. This is as close as VDP can get to that kind of feeling! It's the alley that leads to Versailles' wheat mills which you had seen here. It really does look a bit like a London mews or close, especially with that white door!

Il n'y a pas si longtemps, Geoff à Wanstead postait une super photo de Spitalfields dans l'Est londonien, un cliché de type Jack l'Eventreur. VDP trouve que cet endroit est sans doute ce qu'il a y de plus approchant de l'atmosphère du célèbre tueur en série de la fin du XIXè siècle. Il s'agit de la rue privée des Moulins de Versailles que vous aviez vus ici. Avec cette porte blanche, on dirait vraiment presque un mews londonien !

The alley leads to the back yard of the mills!

La ruelle mène à l'arrière du moulin !

Oh yes, great, I love those cobblestones, I can hear those horse drawn cabs rattling over them in the fog at night. You've posted London, I've posted France ;)

I can just imagine that place by night. Very fitting!

The first image sure does look like a London alleyway. I started worrying and looking over my shoulder.

Love those cobblestones. They speak of history to me!

It does look like a scene from the U.K. I love it.

You don't see so many cobblestones around Perth - I love them - great atmosphere in these shots :)

You are so right. If I didn't know it was your site, I'd guess London. I do love the look of wet cobblestone.

Cobblestones in the rain are so beautiful, love the perspective and colours in the stone in first shot. Did I see a black coat tail disappearing around the corner :)

Add some darkness to your first image and you'll have Ripper-ville.

I love the look of cobblestones but they aren't always easy to walk on. :)

That first photo is perfectly eerie, I'm anticipating someone jumping out at me.

I got the idea, and the first picture is a masterpiece! Brava!

Great pictures, I have the feeling of a movie scenery as well, this place is really interesting! ;)
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday with sunshine!
But today, forget the weather, enjoy your Saturday night in the beautiful elegant city of Versailles.

I thought from the title you were referring to the rain! ;-)

RedPat said...

It does look like a London mews - one of my favourite places to explore there, Ciel!

Julie said...

Even the house appears to have been cobblestoned!

It feels like once you enter in, there is no turning back!

Was that a figure I saw, fleetingly in the shadows...

I love cobblestones, except when I'm wearing high heels.
