Beatiful! I love the snow!
Eric,I too am sitting my office (Melbourne, Australia) and looking out my window - the sky is clear, it is warming to 30+ degrees. I'm near the airport and see jets flying out. We are visting Paris for my 60th birthday. Is there something you can arrange about the weather on April 1 please.My first comment but a regular reader. We love Paris and the many parts of France over our past visits.RegardsLeonhttp://melbourneourhome.blogspot.com/
Looks like a blizzard, Eric! This effect is hard to capture (I find), but you've managed perfectly. Glad it stopped though, especially if you went to work on your scooter!Hi, Leon and Sue.
Amazing capture! I hope for Sue and Leon, and tous les Parisiens that the weather will be beautiful in April.
April in Paris...this wild fit of snow will be a distant memory by then. But we'll have this image to prove it happened.
Gee how I miss that sitting outside here in Singapore! Great photo though.
Wow, you caught the movement of the snow flying so well. . .not easy to do. I love the head and tail and traffic lights giving the gray and white scene that pop of a little red and gold color, and the black band giving some graphic contrast. You really are an artist, you know! ;-)Best wishes to Leon and Sue for the upcoming birthday trip, and Michael and Leon, we in the northern climbs have little sympathy for your plight :-PI hope Montreal was fun, Eric. That is another place I very much would like to visit. In summer. :-)-Kim
I love this. I bet you felt all cozy and dry in your aerie, perhaps with a cup of coffee in your hand. Not fun for the drivers though.
Great shot!!!You went to Montreal last week? I hear it's -20C right now.
Oooh, it looks chilly beans! Fast and furious. Great photo. I'm sure Leon and Sue will have perfect weather in April. Why, even if it showers, they'll be Parisian raindrops, and doesn't that just make you want to be... "singin' in the rain"?! (I do hope you two have warm spring sun for your whole trip, though!) (Michael -- LOOL) I'm thinking ahead, too -- been reading about the 2010 Tour de France. Starting in Rotterdam and highlighting the Pyrenees, its the 100th anniversary of the first time those mountains were included (the poor guys with the derailleur-less bikes of those days had to carry them up the mountains to finish!) Huff, puff, puff!
Gee you meet some nice people out their. Thanks for your thoughts.Carrie - I to enjoy my cycling and take my bike to France each time. I actually find the Paris traffic more fun to ride in than Melbourne.Looking forward to your Pic each morning Eric.Leon
It looks like pointillistic strokes of snow in your photo!I tried and tried to trade my LHR for tomorrow for CDG but now,after this depiction, I don't really care to be there. I HATE the kind of weather you are having now, altho an Angelina hot chocolate sounds pretty good.....!!!!
Come to SIN instead PHX! I'll treat you to Raffles where the Singapore Slings are just as expensive as Angelima's hot chocolate!
I took a group of 17 people to Paris last month. It was cold, snowy and wet. They did not complain once! I wish all my groups were like this.
A veil can only conceal the details of a woman's face, not her beauty.
Beautiful shot! (Even if I am tired of snow :))
yes, looks like ontario last weekend too!~pooch
Beautiful ! To tell the truth, yesterday morning, I thought 'ohhh... snow again' but after that, the weather turned to be dry in the afternoon with a cleaned sky. I felt it good! Abd I now remember that nice time of snow with a warm feeling. That's true it was quite unusual to see this blizzard with these so big and numerous flakes.I love your photo because it reminds me of something close to me!
Well Eric, Michael may be at Raffles but not even Orchard Road beats a little snow in Paris!
Beautiful to admire from the snug comfort of indoors, Eric!Have a lovely trip, Leon and Sue. Can you drop some Koko Black out of the plane as you're flying over Brisbane, please? :)
I had the same weather yesterday morning, while I was driving on the highway... much less fun ;-(
Wow, you've got the disorientating, chaotic feel of snow there...
Sherree,I'm blown away by you lovely drawings and will definately add you to my regular blog reading.Koko Black???Leon
If you love snow and that kind of weather, then you've to come to Estonia. We've about 50 cm snow :D
April in Paris. Wish I was going also. It is also snowing in my little part of Indiana, USA. Somehow, it isn't as exciting as being in Paris in the snow would be.
Nice true flakes.I really envy you Leon and Sue Sims. Having projects of travels together (plus for a special kind occasion) and being on a same wave-length. Sharing. Cheers!Ahhh that's just what I dream of!Shall I have to wait until my 60th??? Give me any drug in the while :D
Somehow, I must agree with bmagre that snow in Paris is more exotic than plain old snow here...maybe because we get it so often and have it for so long. I look forward to the day of sunshine and warmth and green leaves again soon.
Lucio, I like your philosophy. Hide the beauty of Paris? To no a vail. 'snow use.Anytime you want snow, come on over here, we have plenty. Take some home with you. No, really, I insist!But, at the Institute of Arts here, I saw a Courbet painting that I've not seen in the years I've been visiting. I love it when they rotate the collection.
I am dying to see Paris in the snow...We are about to get 2-4 inches here in NY, but it's not anywhere near as romantic when its at home and needs shoveling!Sean
Goodness! How I love it when I'm sharing a view of Paris with you. This is beautiful and I love feeling your intelligence in your shot. No snow where I live. Snow is not compatible with a desertic climate. Only camels live here!!!! Well I'm not joking.
@Leon and Sue. "Is there something you can arrange about the weather on April 1 please." Sure. Let me give a call to the the Paris weather guy!! I'm sure he can arrange something, just for you!Jokes aside, bring a sweater. April in Paris can be very cold...@Alexa ", especially if you went to work on your scooter!" In fact I arrived just before it started. Fortunately ;-)@Kim "I hope Montreal was fun, Eric. That is another place I very much would like to visit." I was not in Montreal. In fact this photo reminded me of Montreal that is why I mentioned it. But I was in Paris last weekend...@Tomate "You went to Montreal last week? I hear it's -20C right now." Nope!@Carrie "been reading about the 2010 Tour de France. Starting in Rotterdam and highlighting the Pyrenees" Rotterdam really? So weird...@PHX "altho an Angelina hot chocolate sounds pretty good.....!!!!" Now you're taking!@Michael "Come to SIN instead PHX" Yeah PHX, come to sin in SIN!@Flore "I love your photo because it reminds me of something close to me!" LOL! @MmeBenaut "Well Eric, Michael may be at Raffles but not even Orchard Road beats a little snow in Paris!" I agree!!@Marleen "If you love snow and that kind of weather, then you've to come to Estonia" Well actually I think I'd love that.@Jeff "Anytime you want snow, come on over here, we have plenty. Take some home with you. No, really, I insist!" LOOOOOOL
Exciting! I think I would appreciate it all the more because it was so short-lived.
Jeff: Hee hee!
By your enthusiasm I guess this is not too common a sight in Paris. More snow than usual this year, eh? Well, you've got a splendid office view, and I'm glad the snow makes you happy. I'd gladly give you some of our Midwestern variety..actually, it's the ice I could do without. Hope you're having a good week. Ciao.
J'adore Eric! :)V
