Un fameux crocodile (Weekend Street/Reflections #169)

Paris, France

This was a popular brand at my junior high school (a long time ago). Students known as "preppies" wore shirts with this iconic crocodile. Have you ever worn clothing from Lacoste? I haven't.

                                             Have a great weekend!

Une soirée en amoureux (Weekend Street/Reflections # 168)

Paris, France

After taking this picture I tried to figure out what Ventadour means. I think it's a reference to the 12th-century Occitan poet Troubadour Bernard de Ventadour.

Big White 'Light' (Weekend Street/Reflections # 167)


 Lyon, France

An evening street scene in Vieux Lyon. The woman was chatting with someone in the doorway of a pub called Big White. The sign reflected on the door says Big White chill and chat. It was pretty cold that night, so she was chilling and chatting.😏

I don't think she noticed the big white light on the runner's head.

Travail en équipe (Weekend Street/Reflections # 166)


 Lyon, France

Teamwork. Only three are visible but it took four men to carry this heavy wooden table up the wet stairs. Thankfully they didn't slip, or drop the table. I stayed off to the side just in case.

 Happy Easter!

Deux Drapeaux (Weekend Street/Reflections # 165)

 

Paris, France

At first, you might think it's a patriotic dragon on the poster with "le tricolore" tattooed on its neck, but it's a reflection of the flag on top of l'Hôtel Lutetia across the street.

                                              Have a great weekend!

BAM Karaoke Box (Weekend Street Reflections # 164)


 Paris, France   

I'm not sure but I think she got there early to memorize and practice a few songs. This place has private karaoke rooms for groups of people. BAM 

There are several locations in Paris, this one is Sentier. 

Have you ever tried karaoke? I did once around 30 years ago but I don't like signing so it was more fun to watch other people do it.

French Empanadas (Weekend Street/Reflections # 163)

 

Lyon, France

It's not the best lighting or the sharpest picture, but look at the yellow sign that says Toké. It has a bearded man wearing glasses sitting on what looks like a giant empanada. Do you think he looks like the man standing at the counter? 😉

They have several types of empanadas, I had the Jambon Fromage and the Boeuf Argentin. I hope to try the Savoyard next time.

Toké - "Venez prendre la dose de Toké que vous méritez !"

Lyon, France

A window reflection of Fourvière Hill. On the left you can see La Tour Métallique de Fourvière and La Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourvière is on the right. The bottom part of the photo shows a little of what's behind the glass, notably a framed picture of an ape wearing glasses and smoking a cigar.😎

405 bottles of beer on the wall? (Weekend Street/Reflections # 158)

 

Lyon, France

This is a reflection of a lively rugby bar in Lyon. I didn't go in, but if I had, I probably would have gone upstairs because it seemed quieter and more peaceful. In case you were wondering the black blur in the bottom left corner is my camera reflected.😏

Survivre aux Escaliers Glissants? (Weekend Street/Reflections # 157)


 Lyon, France (La montée de l'Amphithéâtre)

Walking up wet stairs can be dangerous if you aren't wearing good shoes. Thankfully my shoes worked well and so did his.

Place Juliette Gréco 2 (Weekend Street/Reflections # 154)

I took this picture either right before or after I took the picture of the crossword puzzle lady in Weekend Street/Reflections # 147. The dog seemed to resent the fact that his owner didn't seem to understand the concept of walking. 😏
