Dancing by the Seine


Do you remember this photo? Well, I went back to the Quais Saint Bernard, and, this time, I went a little further and stumbled upon the tango dancers! They are even better located than the salsa ones of last time because they really face the Seine - They actually nest in one of the 3 or 4 small amphitheaters that are to be found there. It's a real dream place for dancers. FYI, the weather is a little chillier in Paris right now, but beautiful.

    I feel part of the energy, looking at them dance. If I had to pick a picture of life on planet earth, I would pick this.

  10. Romantic, heart warming and very Parisian. The tourist office should pay you lots of money for this photo.

  12. I wonder if any of them get carried away and fall into the river.

    PHX - The third thing?
    Well, it takes two to tango.

  13. LooooL Drummond! J'adore:))

    Beautiful shot again : a true 'Intoxication feeling' at the foreground while a really nice view at the background, serene, luminuous. C'est beau. Both are interesting.
    The tango is a spectacular dance. I love seeing it dancing.

    Yes, the weather is beautiful. I feel it very well. Thanks a lot... :)

  14. Dancing in the forefront, with the city of lights as a backdrop and the boats docked on the Seine. Une dance, un Tango, c’est la vie à Paris!

  15. Oh this is beautiful, Eric. Love the tango & this captures the movement & atmosphere so well.

    I could stand for cooler weather here (Wash, DC), so I await it. (Not cold, just cooler:)

    ciao!

  16. Eric -- je suis éblouie! (is that the right word?) This is one of the best "moment in time" shots I've ever seen.

  19. Wow....I can feel the passion of the nite. Do they end this at the end of the Summer? And any hints on how to find these little amphitheaters?

  21. Merci pour cette photo. J'avais vu les danseurs dans ces petits amphithéatres le long de la seine. Mon épouse et moi étions en bateau-mouche (croisière de 23 h) il y a deux semaines environ et je me demandais ou ils étaient situés exactement.

  22. Oh how I love this picture! It carries the atmosphere so well

    I love these dancing spots by the Seine. I once saw people dancing gavotte, a dance from Bretagne.

    These amphiteaters keep busy untill it's too cold to have fun outdoors
