Pom, Snapper, thank you -- it was such a pleasant street atmosphere, with the yellow leaves falling on the brick walk and the street lights and store lights coming up as day turns to night. I love this twenty minutes in the city.

Dear Penny, wonderful scene, if there weren't the letters I'd have thought it's out of some paintings of Paris of the early 20th century (for example Maurice Utrillo). The copplestones, lanterns, trees, leaves and bookstall make it perfect. Very beautiful study! YS! Best of!

Warm regards, May

Thank you, May! -- Yes, the same street lamps! All together, it felt very romantic - The man near the books turned to see what I thought worthy of a photo -- it was the atmosphere I wanted to catch.
