Sean, lots of boats? Where else?
I thought I should do something in colour - I am getting depressed with the weather ;-). Really.

Beautiful colored sails on the boats. I'm doing a ship theme for the next two days myself:) We've had the Tall Ships in Boston for a few days. Have a great week.

Colour is a surprise and what and interesting shot. Regarding rain in Australia ... we get the incorrect idea that Europe is all cities jam full of people and old buildings and that their is only room for tiny farms between.

When we get colour, we get it in abundance!

Boston, I just had a look at he tallships2009 website: now these are ships! Looking forward to seeing your photos.

Joan Elizabeth, I thought about it a little longer and came to the conclusion: to many episodes of "Flying Doctors" and "Neighbours" in my younger years ... :-S. And yes, you are right, everything is very crowded around here and the farms are tiny(compared to Australia ;-))

AB, and it worked: sunny day today, :-D

Martina said...

Joanet, lol - actually I thought of you when I took the photo.

I have photos of little boys pushing these very same boats with a stick in the Tuilleries .. lovely to just sit and watch ... and photograph.

Julie, there wasn't much action when I was there - not many tourists and all the French kids might have been at school. Only one or two boats bobbing up and down.
