Promenade, Garonne River, Toulouse

South of France Autumn light through the Plane Trees along the Garonne River. Picture by my friend Jenny, now living in Toulouse. Exquisite public space. Look how the walkway along the river's edge isn't lined with railings as it would be here in North America. "Street wall" of 2-3 stories set well back. Appears about 25% of the space is for car use. 75% pedestrian and bikes, seems about right.
