In the Forest with You

  • Oct 21, 2012 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Fallen leaves ... colored in red and gold ...
Autumn, a great season to have a walk in the forest and take photos !

Meeting Point : 10 h Metro Porte de la Chapelle

a gasoil station ( pompe à essence ) on the right side of Rue de la Chapelle ( facing outside Paris )

Please be on time, my mobile number [masked] ( I won't have internet connexion )

Our drivers, can you please confirm the number of people you can take, yourself included ...

Everybody with an extra car is welcome !

And, for sure, your camera, raincoat, sandwich, water, extra bag for chestnuts ( if you like them ) ...

My idea : Photos of autumn athmosphere, why not macro, but also portraits of each other in relationship with the forest ( human & nature ), plus I'll have some dancer friend coming and maybe a model for individual posing.

For those who are not afraid of weather conditions ( can't be worse than last weekend ! ), weather forecast says cloudy or sunny with the highest temperatures of the week ;) ...

Let's go to a forest about 20 minutes from Paris, possible by train, but if we could get organized to take cars and split the cost would be great.
Depending if we go by RER or train, we should either meet at Gare du Nord or Porte de la Chapelle sunday at 10 am.
I'll confirm the meeting point later.

People with cars, please let me know ...
My mobile number[masked] or by mail on this site.

    Thank you all for participating, - we were very lucky the sun came out as soon as we arrived and we had a great time together. A big thanks also to our three drivers who took us to the destination !

    +1 to the idea of organising another meetup in a "real" forest (so frustrated I could not make it this time).

    This was a great experience. Hats off to Claudia and Jim. The forest was a delight with a carpet of chestnuts and a bumper crop of freshly sprouted mushrooms. And to make it even better, the sun decided to shine on us in the afternoon.

    I'm going to pass. I'm a public transportation person, not a car guy, and thought we'd be in the Metro or RER zone.

    • Claudia

      Sorry, Richard, I thought it would be possible to go there by train but last minute info is that they're working on the line and there's no train at all this weekend going in this direction.

    Was so looking forward to see the falling and colorful leaves but I'm down with a flu ! If I'm getting better tomorrow, and the weather is friendlier, I may come by on my own and catch up with all of you. I jotted down your mobile number just in case. Have fun !!

    Hi everybody on the list or on the waiting list,

    Claudia, two questions: for how long will this trip be? Should we pack lunch/water, or expect to be able to find a place for food?

    I will be coming from Montsouris/Cité Universitaire, so I hope there aren't any "perturbations" or delays that are typical for a Sunday morning.

    October 20, 2012

    • Claudia

      We'll probably stay in the forest until maximum 13h, depending the weather conditions ( weather forecast says rainy in the morning and sun coming out towards the afternoon ), then look for a restaurant or bar in Domont or Montmorency, or head for Paris, also depending on the drivers time schedule. Pack a sandwich and water ( and an umbrella ) ... Important : We might wait maximum 15 minutes, make sure you're on time, or a bit in advance if you think there will be problems on your line.

      October 20, 2012

  • Claudia

    We should meet Metro Porte de la Chapelle, line 12
    ( not M° Chapelle on line 2 )
    but we still need one more car to go !
