Les hallebardes

Rainy day in Versailles
So... this was Avenue de Paris on Saturday seen from the bus in Porchefontaine neighbourhood... The wind got the better of the garbage can... The second picture is taken towards the convent of the serving sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which VDP had shown you in the snow here.

Vues sur l'avenue de Paris samedi depuis le bus à Porchefontaine... La deuxième, vous l'aurez peut-être reconnu, c'est le couvent des Sœurs Servantes du Sacré-Cœur de Jésus que VDP vous montrait sous la neige, c'était ici.

Yep, pretty rainy here, too, but not as windy.

Very damp! I like both shots. Rather moody.

We did have some rain, but the temps seem to have dropped back below freezing again.

Lois said...

Dreary shots, but I like how they look.

Michelle said...

You really captured the mood of the day with these shots.

That looks like the day we had yesterday. The wind was blowing, the skies were very dark and it felt bitter cold.

Almost spring here: it is quite cloudy now, but no rain...

Halcyon said...

Love the little droplets of rain. It has been windy here too!

Taken For Granted said...

Nothing like a rainy day for muted colors and somber photos. Glad you were warm and dry on the bus.

The second photo is excellent, it's moody, but not dreary. The green makes me think of spring.

Nice rainy images. It adds a dimension to the photo that sometimes we don't appreciate. These are wonderful.

RedPat said...

We are to have weather like that tonight!

Small City Scenes said...

Hmmm rainy you are telling us? haha--we got plenty here too although today is pleasant and we finally got our Christmas tree planted. It is a Serbian Spruce--very pretty.

How nice to see the rain. I've forgotten what it looks and feels like.
