Still cold...


It's still cold. I feel a bit reluctant to go out for blogging subjects. This week I have also been more "baby-sitting" than usual, which also forced me to get up earlier than usual.... and for once I saw the sun rise... over trees.


Actually, the trees were between two buildings. The chimney on the right...


... produced a lot of smoke. All heating systems work at their maximum.

The birds seemed to leave for some hopefully warmer place...


... and the pilot of this airplane seemed to have changed his mind on where to go.

Merci chèr Peter for these images of a Paris sunrise. I've not seen of course. Vous êtes très courageux!

Have fun with our dear Jay today. You two try to stay out of trouble! :) I can't wait to hear your route.

Although I do not see it often enough, the awakening sun making its appearance in Paris is stunning, and you captured it beautifully! Sorry that you had to get up earlier than usual, but we are the beneficiaries!

Stay warm!

Bises,
Genie

Tu te lêves avec le soleil, et tu te couches avec les poules ?

Very poetic images, I'm enchanted by your first collage!
Here we are waiting more snow today. :(
I think I will stay at home, it's the smart idea :)
hugs and a great week

Mais ce n'est pas vendredi aujourd'hui, Papy Peter.
J'espère que tu mets ta petite laine de lama avant de sortir si tôt le matin.

Peter, I do hope it warms up over there soon. It seems all of Europe has been bitterly cold for weeks. Your sunrise photos are wonderful [even if you aren't a morning person!]

Eh bien voilà, rien de tel que de jeunes enfants pour vous faire découvrir de nouveaux horizons, ou plutot de nouvelles lumières !
Je ne reconnais pas ta rue habituelle, j'imagine que ton baby-sitting était au domicile des petits chéris...
Merci pour ces belles images d'hiver. Stay warm !

There´s poetry in what you saw and what you write...

The freezing temperatures don´t interfere with your inspiration...

Bravo, Peter!

Tu me fais rire, Peter,il n'a jamais fait tant froid à Paris / à ailleurs et maintenant c'est finished ! Vendredi il y a 8 jours nous avions gardé Oscar aux Batignolles et devions coucher ensuite à Belleville et puis nous avons entendu dans la voiture "alerte 2 à la neige sur la RP", nous avons changé notre esprit et fait demi-tour pour rentrer à Cergy ; mais samedi il n'y avait pas de neige, elle n'est arrivée que dimanche matin.

Cergie said...

Bouh ! On a du boulot avec nos petits-enfants, einh ?

Ash said...

I can't even rememeber the last time I saw the sun rise :-)

Lovely photos. Happy Valentine's Day to you, Peter!!

Zdjęcia wschodu słońca i umieszczenie etapów jego pokazywania się w kolażu, świetny. Zima mogłyby już odejść i przyjść wiosna. Marzę o tym . Pozdrawiam. *** Pictures of sunrise and placement stages of its display in collage, great. Winter might have to go away and come spring. I dream about it. Yours.

I've heard this winter is so very cold in Europe. I hope it warms up by mid-April!
