Rain started to fall

Can you tell where I was standing when I took this photo of the two most famous domes in Paris? No, I wasn't up on top of the Tour Montparnasse. I had gone up there in the afternoon with my friends E & L. Then we went to a different neighborhood for a light dinner. Rain was starting to fall.

Maybe this will be the right clue. This is not the café where we had supper, if I remember correctly, but it's the one that gave me my best photo. I had a salad, and E & L both had soup. A lot of other people were taking advantage of what turned out to be one of the last summery evenings of 2015.

This last photo will give away the location, I'm sure. If you've been to Paris, you've probably gone the the Place du Trocadéro and the Palais Chaillot to see this view. There were thousands of people out there on this particular evening, August 27. A steady rain would fall for the next 24 hours.

    You must have been focussing NE to get both of them in you line of vision. Dôme de la Madeleine ( hope I am not wrong) looks so close to Les Invalides.

    1. Bonjour Cousine,

      From where Ken is standing, he is looking south-east at the left bank. The second dome is that of the Pantheon, formerly known as Église Sainte-Geneviève.


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
