Walking along the banks of the Seine in summer, on this day especially is hot work. Thankfully provided on a few occasions are these fine misty showers, perfect for cooling off in the hot Paris sun.
Also along the banks there were several references to Brazil and Brazilian fiesta celebrations. As can be seen by the blue, green and yellow banners to the left of the image. I don't know why, perhaps to further exentuate the summer feel of the city.

Great street shot James. There is loads going on to provide interest> It could have been a bit too "busy" as a result but it isn't, I think because the lead in line of people along the road gives it a kind of structure and balance. Nice one. Leon.

Hi James, what a colourful scene, and so busy. It's a very hot day here today and I think we could do with some of those cooling showers.
The colours stand out so brightly too. Well seen and captured,
