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.

                                             Have a great weekend!

Now you can link reflections and/or street photography. 

Please no posed pictures, portraits, animals, etc. unless there is a reflection.

"Street photography is a genre of photography that records everyday life in a public place. The very publicness of the setting enables the photographer to take candid pictures of strangers, often without their knowledge."

I like your photograph very much, friend. Thank you for introducing us to the great troubadour. As a side note, I invite you if you are not already to join me praying earnestly for our country and for the right and good to prevail. Aloha Friend 🌺

Wikipedia knows all. It said,
Ventadour became a county in 1350 under Philippe de Valois, and a Duchy-Peerage in 1578. It (Jim: a castle here) was held by the noble family of Ventadour until 1472, when the last heiress married Louis de Lévis, Baron de la Voulte. Later the stronghold passed by marriage to Rohans, and from the Rohan-Soubises-Ventadour line to the Prince of Condé, who allowed it to fall into disrepair. Sold as a national asset, the castle gradually was dismantled, especially after the Bourbon Restoration, when it was acquired by the merchant and materials dealer Pertuis du Gay. It was then the property of the duke of Lévis-Mirepoix. (Jim here: In 1965 restoration of the castle was started, haven't read on to see is that had success)

It looks like a type of cafe to me, looks like the people are deep in conversation.

I wonder what both couples were talking about James? Thanks for hosting and commenting. Have a lovely week ahead.
