Paris in august

Paris in august, i took my 1st vacation day for a walk along the Seine.
this second week of august is the quietest of the year in Paris…many streets are almost empty (except tourist areas), transport are not crowded, several shops closed…i like Paris in august…and the 11 other months also ;-)

Beach volley at city hall square…kinda Copacabana ;-)

3 beach volley areas, for summer games

a very contested basket ball game…i'd like to catch pictures of dunks or smash, but i missed them:-(

the river boats are on the Seine, all the year

chilling under the bridges

the city hall in the background, seeing from “ile saint Louis”

Quai des Célestins : the street booksellers area, the stalls are closed.

Voie Georges Pompidou : the express shore drive, crowded with thousands of cars the rest of the year…only for pedestrians and bike on summer

What a cheerful, fun-loving series of this wonder filled city! The light, casual, fun mood of the people are a nice contrast to the austerity of the official buildings. Great job!

Nice set. Love how they made a "beach" in the town center.

I love Paris too. Beautiful pictures. Fantastic city. I think it is rather warm there during August. May is better.

Belles vues de "Paris-Plage" ! ...
Ai quitté cette région en 1991 , elle ne me manque pas ! mais je comprends que l'on puisse lui trouver un certain attrait .
