Ernest Hemingway in Paris in the 1920s. An expatriate learning to be an author while living with other members of the "lost generation."
Hi Kaylee, thanks for giving it a look & being the first to comment!!I hope that you are feeling better.
That's a very interesting photo! Did you manipulate the image?joyYour Love Coach
Love it. I love Paris, but never had the chance to visit it with such weather.
Hi Joy, no, just a copy & paste job, no manipulation at all.
Hi Carlos, thanks for the visit - always good to see you on.I just liked the painting :)
Yo my friend this is so interesting :D I bet these barges housed the boat people too perhaps? I'm intrigue by the oldies really!
Very cool!But is that snow on the banks? That's very unusual. During our sejourn in Paris (3 years) it snowed a couple of times, but it melted almost immediately...
Hi Shionge, frequently the crew was a family that owned the barge. So it was their "house" as well as their business.They might carry grain or coal into other parts of France or to Belgium or Germany - there is a very good canal system in Europe.Some barges were owned by a businessman, of course, & the crew would work for him and have a house on land.It must be a great way to live - & barges are collectibles now. Live on it and just sail along the waterways, tying up at the banks at night.
Isabella, yes a snow scene - I know snow is an unusual event in Paris - but this was from the 1920's :)
It is a nice painting. Thanks for your visits to my blog.
It's a very pretty painting.....who's the artist, Nikon???
Hi Moi, The artist is Jac Martin-Ferrieres (1893-1974).
Paul you HAVE to go to Paris someday. I stayed in the Saint Germain area so you can image all the places Hemingway and his friends used to go was just around the corner. I even went to Shakespeare and CO. a couple of times.Paris is the best!
Hi Monica,I'd love to go, trust me !!

Definitely a winter shot - the dim and soft light is beautiful!And barges speak to me, I've lived on board one for over ten years...

Nikon, This is a delightful photo of a delightful painting. The barges are so nostalgic for a bygone era, even tho there are still barges plying the canals. Great find
Nice painting. Love the feeling of the entire painting - especially the smokes flowing out from the boat. It has somewhat enlighten the whole painting. I've never seen the real snow yet. =)
