Purple rain


OK there is nothing really purple in the photo, but it makes a good title! There is nothing really captivating  about this photo either, and though I really love it. I took it last evening near Les Halles (you can see a tiny bit of the Beaubourg center in the very background) just after the rain stopped. The lights are 100% natural; that's what invited me to take the photo actually... Now on to the Christmas decorations ;-)

  2. But there is something purple in the image. Look on the upper right and you'll see some purple in a sign or something.

    Great image. I love rain images.

  3. Since Prince comes from Minnesota - I am sure Jeff and I will both appreciate the Prince reference in your title! Love the lighting.

  4. Nothing captivating ?
    A great urban shot, on the contrary! No need of faces, of chic store fronts, of woks of art all the time. Just a good athmophere, just a great moody picture can tell a lot. You can repeat this one anytime !

  8. @Ken "But there is something purple in the image. Look on the upper right and you'll see some purple in a sign or something." True!!

    @Petrea " It's raining here today, too!" I bet it's much warmer though ;-)

    @Mpls "Since Prince comes from Minnesota" I knew that and did it on purpose!! (No, I'm kidding, I had no clue ;-)

    @Arr Day "You can repeat this one anytime !" Don't encourage me LOL!
