Free-zing!


The cold is back again... Of course in January it's pretty normal, but since we already had a cold wave in December - which is rather unusual - I was hoping January would leave us alone! Anyway, I thought this photo was and excellent illustration of winter. I took it avenue Monceau where they have a huge air grating, probably leading to the Metro. It's much less sexy than Marylin Monroe's famous photo, but that is all I could find in the middle of winter!

  1. It might be even more sexy. Is it a fig leaf? ;-)

    Stay warm!

  2. Too cold to be sure! Does the leaf flutter with the puffs of air through the grate?!? I like it. Yes, please stay warm & healthy.

  3. Cold? Seriously? Hm: -3 C in Paris right now, and it is -7 C here. I don't have a great amount of sympathy, mes amis! But, stay warm anyway.

    I just adore your photo Eric!

  7. But the wind chill makes it feel like -10°C (and there's more snow on the way). Hope that makes you feel a bit warmer!

  8. I can't feel too bad when the high here today is supposed to reach -8C! (I'm just glad you can see the leaves, all we can see is snow, snow, snow.) I hope you stay warm though and have a wonderful day! :)
