Paris after dark - 6

I like the look of the water in this photo, and the bateau-mouche passing under the pont Saint-Michel.
I took it from the same spot as photo no. 3 in this series.

This morning I woke up to lightning, thunder, and...believe it or not... rain. The shower lasted all of 5 minutes. Maybe we'll get some more raindrops from the front that's moving through. We desperately need rain. But no hail, please. Afternoon temperatures have been in the upper 80s F for a few days now. Thay say this month will go down as the hottest May in the history of record-keeping. Oh, it just started raining again — heavily.


  1. The more rain the better! That boat created a nice wake for your photo.

  2. Love the water in this photo. We too are desperate for rain.

  3. E and BA, we didn't get any more rain yesterday, but it also didn't get as hot as predicted. The long-term forecast has very little rain in it, and more high temperatures. That roiled water in my photo must surely have been caused by tour boats.


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