Enough cold and rain!


Don't get fooled by the ray of sun that you can see in this photo, it's actually pretty cold and rainy these days in Paris... The only positive aspect is that it gave me the opportunity to take this photo while I was crossing the Seine to go back home. If you blow it up, you'll see the Grand Palais in the background (on the right), pretty spectacular with the light passing through it. My only concern is that this bad weather stops right before the PDP Picnic on May 13; I want heat and sun!

  2. Nice capture of the Grand Palais. The ray of sun isn't fooling me, that is one moody looking photo. There will be heat and sun on the 13th. I have spoken! Or it will snow! ;)

  7. Don't we all!! (At least those of us in northern climes that have had much cold weather of late!) This is a gorgeous picture, Eric. I love the sunbeams coming through the clouds and the colors on the water and in the sky are lovely. Thank you for sharing it!

  10. I like the photo, tho its too bad you have to put up with the bleak weather that's created it. You've made a silk purse out of a sow's ear, though.

    I'll cross all my fingers though for wonderful, perfect weather for you all for the picnic. Oh, you have no idea how much I wish I could be there!!

    Eric, this is just to tell you for the millionth time, because you deserve to keep hearing it over and over, that you are a wonderful person for creating PDP and for being so faithful to all of us who benefit from your love of your beautiful city.

  11. Lovely Eric! I appreciate the variety in your photos. One day a cup, another day legs, today sunlight on the Seine. Is this taken on that pedestrian bridge near the Tuleries? Or do I have my direction off? I hope you have good weather for the picnic!

  12. I have been talking daily with Paris and everyone seems to share your opinion. Today I was told that May is suppose to be a good month in Paris, weather wise that is. BTW, this is a lovely photo, and does that river look COLD or what? My teeth chatter just looking at it. The sky looks like it is trying to clear. Maybe this is the last rain for a while.

    Blowing you California sunshine.

  13. I'm sorry to tell you that it will be rainy in Paris most of next week. Then, on Friday and Saturday 8 and 9 of May, it will get sunny. By the 13th it will be absolutely lovely weather. Have I ever failed to bring good weather to Paris for a picnic? Please, have some faith!

    This view of Pont des Arts and Grand Palais is one of the best in the city at sunset. Your photo captures the Grand Palais quite well.

  15. Great photo. I love how the buildings are silhouetted and the water has a nice sheen to it.

    I'd still rather be in Paris when it's cold than in California when it's hot.

  18. Really striking photo, Eric! You are right about the light passing through the Grand Palais -- spectacular indeed.

    And I cannot resist saying that I would be glad to be in Paris in ANY weather ... Oh, and if only I could attend the PDP picnic! Sigh ...
