Sunday bridge

Pont d'AvignonYes it's that bridge again, the pont d'Avignon made famous by the song "Sur le pont d'Avignon, on y danse on y danse..." . Sunday afternoon is a great day to go for a walk on the promenade along the river bank. This couple stopped for a while to look at the ducks before resuming their walk.

Eh oui c'est encore lui, notre célèbre Pont d'Avignon. A défaut d'y danser, se promener sur les berges du Rhône en ce dimanche après-midi est toujours un grand plaisir. Ce jeune couple s'est arrêté un moment pour regarder les canards avant de reprendre son chemin...

Elle renvoie à la courbe de l'arche.

Such a pretty bridge with the lovely reflexions. We often sing that song in our French Language classe ~on y danse on y danse~

Bonjour! Nathalie,
Ah! The bridge...Once again, what lovely photographs...this time of man/woman and nature in unison?

I like the fact, that the couple where just walking along and then stopped to be attuned with nature.

In this case, observing a group of ducks waddle in the water. I must admit that he seems to be much more interest in the ducks than his companion does.

Merci, for sharing!
DeeDee ;-D

I'm going to Marseille on Wednesday for a couple of hours. Know of any photo op places other than the tourist track

So that's the bridge! I remember learning this song at the Alliance Francaise and wondered if it was real or imaginary.

Fardoise - depuis le pont Daladier bien sûr ! :-)

Peter said...

Fortunately the bridge is still there ... but fortunately there are also other bridges - for your photos and for crossing the Rhône! :-)

What a lovely spot and I'm puzzled as to why there is only the one couple enjoying it. I would think there would be many out on such a grand day.

Une bien belle harmonie de couleurs et de lignes !

J'ai cliqué sur Skywatch tant pis on est lundi :-) Un ciel nuageux est toujours fascinant à observer. Un bel éventail que celui-ci !!!
