Florence from Paris, France

Truly a remarquable shot, in its frame/crop and this warm hint... it always evoks a great times for me, summer but not only... it's the time for sun, heat, time to rest... time to live our life.... time to take time.

@Florence: Thanks for your thoughts on summer. Hazy, warm summer mornings are the best! Dawn comes early and nobody's up. Nice and quiet.
