La devise de Paris : elle est battue par les flots mais ne sombre pas

The City is " tossed by the waves but doesn’t sink "
The flood of the river Seine in Paris

Ta photo est bien titrée... Les gens qui possèdent un bateau ou qui vivent sur doivent avoir quelques soucis en ce moment, c'est triste de voir la Seine comme cela mais ta photo donne aux provinciaux une idée précise de ce que vivent les parisiens en ce moment

Magnifique composition, malheureusement beaucoup de personnes ont en cette période les pieds dans l'eau. Il n'y a pas qu'à Paris. )

Très belle composition avec cette belle péniche ! on se rend bien compte de la montée des eaux ! elle ne va pas pouvoir passer sous le pont avant un certain temps ! Je plains les gens qui ont les pieds dans l'eau actuellement !

An interestin composition of this moored boat on the flooded river. I like the ladder and small boat so folks could leave the moored boat.

You can really see how high the water is flowing under the bridge. Wonderful point of view with the brightly colored boat in the foreground and the bridge in the distance. I hope that the waters recede soon.
