I like this photo. It seems very quiet.
Good pic.But I think a couple of people at a table, with tea and croissants, would be even more delightful. Lovers, perhaps.
It gently rained a bit when I was in Paris recently; didn't mind at all....and I sneaked some shots, too.I like this 'quiet thought' photo.
Moi, je pense qu'il guettait un chien ou un chat pour préparer le déjeuner... :-)Bon début de semaine, Genie!
I like a lot this kind of picture showing "life in the city", and this one is wonderful, I love it in b&w.Hugsand a lovely Monday,Léia
I think he needed the break Genie ~ looks a tad stressed. It's amazing how the camera shows the emotions on a face. xx"All Things French"
Sara Louise -- Merci... The street was active with people but I was able to capture him alone..Miss Sadie -- I will find a few of those types for you... merci!Richard -- hehe... Tu est trè attentif... mais je ne pense pas que ce soit vrai. Léia -- Merci, mon amie... I had to snap and go on this one as it was lightly raining! A wonderful Monday to you both (and Luna)Bibi -- I'm with you... a little rain in Paris is great for the atmosphere!Dianne -- He might be a bit stressed if you believe what Richard said... hummmm Merci!
I came from Rob-Bear, Miss Sadie's blog to say bonjour.
Great shot of the ordinary, which is rather extraordinary. Next sewing project begins with phase two of sewing class starting in a couple of weeks, another skirt with zipper and darts. Have a lovely day, dear little Genie in the blogger's bottle of beauty ~ xox Alexandra
Stealing a moment to relax. Thinking about how hot it must be inside the kitchen.
I like the mood of this picture: the special light, the man that is obviously tired by his work and needing this little moment of peace, the asiatic man working in Paris..a good departure for a writing class, a lot of tales to imagine..
Black and white is perfect for this photo.
Another great shot. It speaks volumes about reality and the city life.
I love the composition and the quietness in the photo. But not the RAIN.
Lots of smoke breaks in Paris! :)V
rosaria -- So glad that you did... They are both dear friendsBird -- Merci, mon ami!Coco -- Merci, hope you become a fashion dressmaker with your new talents! Love the "Genie in a bottle" reference, mon amieRob -- Yes, and it was very cold in Paris in early December so he cooled off quickly!Malyss -- Merci... I like being able to produce thought-provoking photos - yay!Kate -- Thanks, I was undecided until I looked at it in b/w... I had a tighter crop but V said she liked this one better...Jacqueline -- Merci, mon amie... I would love to spend weeks and weeks finding moments like this one.biebkriebels -- Merci... and I understand that you have had more than your share of rain lately (smile)
I'm surprised there aren't more comments about uck, typically French, the chef smokes and then cooooks! :-) Having said that, the photo is terric!
Nice ambiental pic ! Black and white is great :-)Bonne semaine Genie !xoLala
Like Ciel, I know all about how people feel about the smoking/cooking chef! But what the hey? He makes a terrific subject for a great photo! I love France, I love the French and I loved every minute that I was able to be there. And unlike what you hear a lot of Americans complain about, everyone treated my husband and I in the very best, welcoming, helpful and fun way! Now who asked me to get on my soap box????? But I do love France! Hope you have a great week!Sylvia
This photo speaks volumes!
Look at that expression...pure France!I've only just discovered you - very glad I did. We are down in Provence.
ciel -- Yeah, that is a bit yucky... glad that you like the shot!Lala -- Bonne semaine à toi, Lala! It seemed to look better in b/w, merci....Sylvia -- You make me laugh, my friend, and I totally understand your sentiments... I love Paris and all of France... I love the French, the language, the countryside, the cities, the children, the rivers... well, you get the idea.EG -- Merci, my friend!Deborah -- Oh my... I have now discovered your blog and your post about Richard... Merci, mon amie!
Sad that it's almost tomorrow and I'm only getting here now! I think maybe this guy's job is as stressful as mine. At first I wondered what he was thinking about—then decided the answer is . . . nothing! Good capture, Genie—and perfect in b&w.
Alexa -- Not too late as I always read the comments and of course, I treasure your creative wit and humor (and opinion)... Merci, ma chère amie!
Everyone needs a break now and then. ;)
Beautiful B&W photograph. Very classic looking.
I like the typical moment you captured, Genie. For this cook, it was probably a moment like many on a day like many, but your capture now makes it special.
Halcyon -- Agreed, and hope you will give us an update on your transition...Randy -- Merci, mon ami.Jack -- He just seemed like a frame from an old b/w dubbed movie... glad that you like it, Jack
Love this photo. You want to know what he's thinking? Of his wife, his children, where he came from originally - perhaps.
Oh I love that pic ! I've been away for a few days... I missed your blog, Genie ! :-)
Great shot Genie!!! I love it in B&W!
This is my kind of shot! We would have a great time shooting Paris that's for sure!
Jilly -- I love to imagine what people are thinking... Merci!o2 -- So glad you like it... glad you are back as I missed seeing your blog and hearing from you here.Chieftess -- Merci, mon amie!James -- Yes, this would be your type of shot... we could have a whole gang of photographers!
