Autumn's Here

Just been strolling around the 15th arrondissement, not trying to be particularly creative, just enjoying a lovely autumn day. And it's funny what you come across.

Here you can see a lady leading her four donkey/mule things down the middle of the street past the very picturesque little church at the end of rue de Commerce which runs back to La Motte Picquet-Grenelle where I live.

I was actually looking for a place called 'Mon Bon Chien' which is Paris's and probably France's first doggy bakery and I thought it might be worth checking out. It was shut though, so I carried on and stumbled across this little street which could have been in a sleepy village somewhere in the south of France or on an island somewhere!

And finally I came across the beautifully calm square Saint Lambert which is a sleepy delight, with people sunbathing on the grass and just generally chilling out and not feeling like they're in Paris at all. I think I'm heading back there with a drink as soon as I finish this!

There are some awesome coloured trees and walls draped in bright red ivy around at the moment, so I'm going to try and capture a couple of those for us too.

I'm still waiting for Shakespeare & Co to get back to me with confirmed dates for my photography evenings so until then I'll just have to content myself with actually taking pictures instead of blabbering on about them. Back to work tomorrow, but until then, let's enjoy Paris some more.
