Comme à Lisbonne (Weekend Reflections # 239)

Paris, France                                                                       Le Marais

This photo brings back great memories for me. My camera was wet so I walked into the first open doorway to dry it off. It happened to be the door of a little place in the Marais called Comme à Lisbonne. After I dried off I couldn't resist trying an espresso and one of their delicious Portuguese pastries called pastéis de nata. After my snack I was beyond content, almost blissful, and as I walked out I snapped this street/reflection photo.

Have a good weekend!

Love the story that goes with the wonderful picture! How on earth did you catch the rain?

Fabulous capture of rain and reflection, James. Before this even finished opening, I thought, "That guy has to be French!"

So, there is a silver lining getting our cameras wet...I'm going to have to try that.

Great shot! And a nice way to spend a rainy day.

Pasries and coffe are good in this Lisbonne-in-Paris place... Good to know ! I'll try it next time I'm in Le Marais...

I like your pic, James : the attitude of the men talking together is so natural... And it is never easy to get such a result, so great job !

This is such a wonderful photo - One of those I can just sit with as it tells its story.

James, what a fine memory of a rainy day in Paris. Great reflection as well.

Je ne connais pas cette place, mais il s'agit d'une photo très réaliste, pleine de charme. Il pleut à Paris ? très étrange.

bon week end à tous,

Ava

Hi James I love the way your shot is in B & W as it suits this street scene with its reflections. Hope you like my first attempt in your weekend reflection meme. Thanks for hosting.

Great capture of theses two guys chatting, completely oblivious to the rain.

Laura said...

So much character in the faces of these people… great photo James!

I really like this reflection. Our local photo competition this spring was 'street photography'. This would have been the perfect entry. A winner for sure.

The black and white photo fits perfectly in the rainy day mood. The moment captured in others lives ... so cool. The sweet treats and espresso ... you are making me drool. Great post, James ...

Very cool street shot. Would have been fascinating even without the reflection.

Great shot, it really captures the atmosphere. Sounds a perfect place. I love wandering around the Marais and I simply adore pasteis de nata.As a total coincidence my reflection this week is in the Marais too.

Je suis à Paris, je vais essayer de prendre de belles ' reflections'.

Généralement, on s'interesse à l'histoire qui est SUR la photo. Grâce à toi, on s'interesse à l'histoire qui est DERRIERE , et c'est presque mieux !
