Dancing in the rain on the Champs-Élysées (Paris, France) by 


“This is what you do on your very first day in Paris. You get yourself, not a drizzle, but some honest-to-goodness rain, and you find yourself someone really nice and drive her through the Bois de Boulogne in a taxi. The rain’s very important. That’s when Paris smells its sweetest.” ~ Sabrina (Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina)

Photo taken on the Champs-Élysées (Paris, France) during a May rain shower.

    (Would you mind to add the country name, France, to your description, for our group, All Street Portraiture? Thank you!!)

  • Thanks Tatum – sorry that I keep forgetting to add the country, not just the city!
