Premières Gouttes de Pluie (Weekend Reflections # 190)

Paris, France (Rue du Renard)
This is a reflection in a restaurant window. I was able to capture the reaction of the couple as the first drops of rain began to fall. Incidentally here's the translation for the title of this post (First Drops of Rain). After I took this picture I noticed that the people inside of the restaurant thought I was taking pictures of them. :-)


 Have a nice weekend./Bon week-end à tous.

Notice that most people aren't even bothering with umbrellas??! I gave them up when I lived there...and learned to just enjoy the rain. In this one, I think it's the signs that take me back...

So much going on here! The couple with the umbrella are probably happy to be in Paris, rain or no rain. :~}

A great one again. Like it James. I see that you are looking for this kind of opportunities but not strange after such a lucky row of shots.

Nice photo, at least the people can still smile there about the rain drops, we don't.....

Anne (cornucopia) said...

Great capture! I'm still not quite sure how you took it, though.

Marie said...

Very nice photo. They don't really look surprised. We have had so much rain this year.

This week, I have posted a real reflection. :-)

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

Interesting photo. The carousel/rotunda? in the rear middle makes for a talking point.

Laura said...

wonderful reflections James!

DawnTreader said...

Great way to catch people on photos without them noticing - even if some other people got the wrong idea instead :)

Bi Ti said...

Great capture of Paris street life and cool reflection.
Bon weekend!

About all the different people's reactions--folks just don't know what to make of you, the Reflection Capturer.
Such a fun picture!
