Candles in the Rain (Weekend Reflections # 175)

Paris, France

Paris + night + rain + reflections + my camera,  these five things = a good time for me.

Unfortunately I only have three out of the five this weekend but I'll try to make the most of them. :-)

Have a great weekend!

Please only link posts that have a photo or photos that contain a visual reflection.  Reflections can be on water,glass,metal or anything else as long as we can see the reflection.If needed, click the link near the top right corner for instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

Beaucoup de reflets dans cette image, et l'oeil passe de point rouge en point rouge avant de les decouvrir tous..J'adore l'atmosphere des villes de nuit sous la pluie!

Voilà un decor de table de terrasse original : ça réchauffe, une petite flamme, par une bonne pluie hivernale...

Encore une photo superbe, James, décidément Paris t'inspire !

Awesome capture as always, James! I do love your wet street reflections!!! Have a great weekend!!

Great mood in your reflection! California, day, sunshine, reflections and your camera are a great second choice!

Alexa said...

Some make lemonade with lemons; you make fabulous reflections with a rainy night (and I'd almost always rather be in Paris, rainy or not)! Un très bon weekend to you too --

ClickNCamera said...

You're the master...wonderful shot!

Hope for you the rain will stop! And you'll have a chance to sit outside at at the patio of a restaurant (I think that's what European life is about:) )

From the thumbnail I thought this might be in my part of the world. It had stopped raining just for you so that the candles could burn!

Sorry to trouble you with this problem but I entered the wrong link for my photo. Is there a way you can delete my first link? My second one is correct. Thank you!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Great reflection shot!

Marie said...

Do you really like Paris in the rain? I like it better in the summer :-)) There is something of Edward Hopper's art in your photo. By the way the exhibit ends tomorrow night.... The best time to see the paintings is between 3 and 4 AM. :-)

Sara Chapman said...

Funny scene to see the lit candles in the rain. Hope you weren't going for a glass of something outdoors, no matter how romantic the mood.

Laura said...

beautiful reflections james!

Luis Gomez said...

Love this one James!

imac said...

Super shot James, well - you had your camera lol.

Victoria said...

Il ne pleuvait pas assez pour que les bougies s'éteignent, mais trop pour s'asseoir sur les banquettes.
Une très jolie ambiance.
bon week end !

Norma Ruttan said...

rain provides great opportunities for reflections, n'est ce pas?
wow, are those narrow streets! I like your equation; indeed a dramatic image!

Powell River Books said...

Wow, those tables are really near the street. Bet it is exciting to have a drink and watch all the action. - Margy
