  1. There must be a reason this ruelle is named after chats. It looks kind of dark and spooky…I don't think I'd want to meet a big mean chat in that ruelle after dark!

    I like the softened edges here and that last shot is so mysterious…who is the woman? Is that her bike? What's she doing there?

    And Cezar, your comments this morning were just the right tonic as I head out to the golf course…well, I hope I get to play golf…we had bad thunderstorms during the night with lots of rain, wind and lightning…but it seems that nonsense has passed…anyway, merci beaucoup!

  2. I feel the same way as Doug, your terrific photos are like a walk back in time and I do love the medieval feel that they have! Superb post for the day as always! Hope you have a great week, Leia!

  3. Your photos are fabulous and the black and white ones are of a time long past. I would be partial to any “rue” or alley with “chat” in the name… I bet that Luna would like this too!

    Bon dimanche, mes amis!

  4. Like Genie, I thought of Luna right away! Then I thought of Dick find a “Rue du Dick” in Saint-Malo.
    Black and white is absolutely perfect for Ruelle des Chats. Gorgeous photos!

  5. Your pictures have a very “film noir” look to them. Little by little I am learning tidbits of French. Rue – is street, yes? So ruelle – is like little street or alley. I'm having so much fun. 🙂

  6. No cats street in Livorno, but in Rome there is a Via della Gatta with even a sculpture of the feline on a corner!

  7. From the first photograph I thought they were Louvers (the second one made it clear that it is not)
    Like that lampshade.
