Eh oui, Genie, une vue typiquement parisienne comme on peut voir souvent dans les bistrots.Bravo et bonne journée!
Looks like a cold morning there!I can't start my day without coffee!Léia
Even the older blokes are so very stylish. x
I love these snapshots of life, really! And I wonder if crumbs got stuck in his gloves???
He's just so... Dapper!! I love how they serve water with coffee in Paris.
Weather seems to be cold! and he's there anyway, enjoying his little moment..You caught a pretty instant of life!
I wonder what is in the package? Love the photo -- so very French!
I would join Monsieur for a cup! :) Great BW portrait!V
Love the simple chic ! ah...you make me crave for a café- croissant now... :-)Bonne journée Genie et merci pour le commentaire !xoLala
There is something very pleasant and relaxed about this gentleman. He's smiling, too.Did he know you were taking his picture?
Cold but relaxed at the same time and I love Cafe Au Lait...
oh I love to see that, great pic, have a nice time, big hugh Kathrin
Il est charmant, Genie! I agree with Malyss—and do you suppose he's there for his morning coffee no matter what the weather is like? I'd like to think so, actually.
Un vrai parigot!
What a perfect way to spend a Sunday morning. He looks like such a charming old gentleman.
A very nice (sneaky) portrait. That's a Sunday morning pleasure!
Wonder what's in the bag?
Les hommes francais sont adorables!
We are all seeing this as a typically French scene, aren't we? I'll bet he is from Mobile and just arrived from the airport.
I love captured moments like this!
Richard -- Oui, et de temps en temps il y a un photographe dans les ombres comme moi! Léia -- It was cold and I am with you on liking the coffee.Diane -- He was quite stylishSamantha -- If I were not such a stealth photographer, I would have hung around and checked it out.Dianne -- Dapper, indeed, and the water glasses are always the same.Malyss -- There were seats inside but he seemed to prefer being out on the terrasse... Merci!Marie -- Merci, mon amie... Perhaps pastries for the rest of his family? Je ne sais pas.Virginia -- Merci, the colors were good, but the b/w makes the portraitLala -- I would love one also... I guess that it is good for my health that I do not get to eat croissants every day... MerciMiss Sadie -- He does look relaxed and no, he did not see me... I am quick with my trigger fingerClick -- That is my café of choice also... café au lait, miam-miamkathrin -- Merci, mon amie... you are so kindAlexa -- I think so... I love to imagine the stories of the people I photograph... He had such a kind face and I think that he was alone that morning...Rob and Mandy -- Parigot... I wonder why I've never run into that word before, but I will be using it now... Merci!Loree -- I really do hate to disturb a stranger when they are at a table, but would have loved to talk with himHalcyon -- Well, now you know my style and my tricks, heheheStarman -- This was near a market and perhaps it was a purchaseSasha -- Tu as raison, mon amie! Il était trobooogosse!Jack -- Hummmm... Now that would be a disappointment. Here I am photographing un vrai parigot and would have been very sad had he been from Mobile... Had he really been from Mobile, he would not have owned a warm coat comme ça.
Randy -- I love them when I don't get caught or fussed at for being the American photographer - hah! Merci...
He looks cold! But I do like his little hat :-)
Alone but probably not lonely. This is a terrific portrait, the better for being converted.
Wonderful portrait, esp in monochrome. Do you ever send photos to the subjects?
I bet he had no idea that people all over the world would be joining him thanks to your wonderful photo. :)
Sara Louise -- I wondered if he was truly French, but I did not think that he was from the USCarol -- Charming and quite proper... MerciJulie -- So glad that the photographer agrees with the B/W... Merci, mon amieKate -- I have, but many strangers do not want to talk to the American nut with a camera... Certainly there are those with whom I have forged a business relationship such as the girl in the boulangerieJames -- And I would hope that he finds this a flattering portrait
Simply love that photograph in B&W
I can smell the coffee-only in France
Would've spewed on the computer if I'd been drinking my cafe au lait reading Jack's comment!!! Don't think he's from Mobile...the hat just doesn't speak of 'Bama!!! He is delightful, as is the photo, and yes...fab in B&W!!!
He looks like the quintessential grandfather and yes, very stylish. Wouldn't he have some stories?Vickixx
Love the photo Genie - so much so that I printed it out and am taking it to my writing group - the challenge is to write 500 words on 'what is in the package'!!
Haddock -- I think that it just cried for b/w... glad that you agree. MerciMe -- I can smell that coffee and even the bread which is what I think he has in that package... MerciChieftess -- Yes, you are going to have to help me keep Jack under control... I think that he is getting me back for all the "snow" comments I make to him... Glad that you like the b/w for this shot, mon amie!Vicki -- I would have loved to sat with him and talked but I generally have better manners (unless, of course, invited - hehe)Gringo -- You will have to tell me how this turned out... I think that he had been shopping in the nearby market and that the bag contains either bread or produce
Un petit air de JEAN GABIN. Charlotte
Charlotte -- Merci! Tu as raison...
