Paris and One Tourist

It is hard to take a photo with one lone figure in Paris. Thanks to minus three degrees I managed to take this pic on Sunday morning. Paris felt deserted just the photographers and the kids hurling snow balls.

I snapped this pic on Pont Marie and thanks to a girl with a multi-coloured umbrella broke ‘the end of the world’ sensation.

Hope you enjoy it.

PS: Taken on my Leica M8.2

    I love the photo….and I would still love to be there, even with such cold temperatures. It snowed when I was there, but nothing like what your lovely photo shows!

    Have a Fabulous Christmas and I hope you find lots of ways to keep warm!

    Paris streets are never empty of people. No matter what time it is.
    This is a very unusual view of Paris, but equally beautiful.
    Joyeux Noel Carla

    I"m LOL. I was going to ask how you knew she was a toursist and then I said to myself, "She's not in BLACK"~

    Seriously how much did you have to pay the "models" for these last two photos. They couldn't be more perfect Carla. I"m swooning again!

    Love seeing snow in Paris. I was outside today in bare feet. I walked across the Pont Marie every day I was in Paris, so this photo makes me feel as though I'm standing there once again. Happy Holidays, Carla!

  12. James says:

    Well seen and captured Carla! I wondered how you know it is a 'tourist', but then again, only a tourist would go out in that weather?

    Keep warm

    What a fantastic image! I love that the only people out in the snow were photographers and kids. The beauty of your photographs of the snow in Paris will stay with me for a long time.
