The Place Dauphine is a public square located near the western end of the Île de la Cité in the first arrondissement of Paris. It was initiated by Henry IV in 1607, the second of his projects for public squares in Paris, the first being the Place Royale (now the Place des Vosges). He named it for his son, the Dauphin of France and future Louis XIII, who had been born in 1601. From the "square", actually triangular in shape, one can access the middle of the Pont Neuf, a bridge which connects the left and right banks of the Seine by passing over the Île de la Cité. A street called, since 1948, Rue Henri-Robert, forty metres long, connects the Place Dauphine and the bridge.

A puzzle here, a triangle "square"...Jason.
Nice view through, with good depth and clarity.
Already a bit of autumn colors, maybe partly naked trees, already.
Nice neighbourhood in Paris, as i see from this.

This is an intriguing picture with this triangular square. The borders of the triangle on both sides leads the eye nicely in to the picture. It convokes the mood of Paris nicely.
I think you may have got some nice autumn colors in this picture, witch I have tried to bring out some more in my little workshop. I hope you don't mind?
have a great time
