Les quais de la Seine

Here's one from the archives. People enjoying a warm spring day on the banks of the Seine in central Paris, April 2009. If I remember correctly, I met up with some American friends for a day or two while they were vacationing in Paris. We had lovely spring weather, and I had some time to wander around on my own.

Just behind where they're sitting is a stair that comes down to river level from the streets above.

My camera at the time was a Panasonic Lumix FZ7, my first digital camera. I haven't used it now for many years. I should probably get it out and see if it still works. It's a small camera and could come in handy when (or should I say "if") we start to travel again.


  1. Yes, it‘s feeling like “if.” That’s a great shot.

  2. Lovely picture: do, re, mi, fa, sol...!

  3. Even the green trash receptacles are a cool addition to this series of colors.

  4. I was curious about your tree comment re orange leaves. You may have a sugar maple. Perhaps you could run a tap line. Sugaring off would keep you busy for a while. :-)

  5. mitch, one of these days...

    jan, ha!

    judy, at least they provide something!

    emm, I thought sugar maples had green leaves in summer (the sugar maple is the state tree of my home state). Ours have dark red leaves in summer.

  6. I smiled as I don't see anywhere folks in berets, striped shirts, carrying loaves of bread.

  7. Isn't that lowest person sporting a beret? I'm thinking many of the subjects might be tourists!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
