Merveilleuse photo!
L'ombre appartient à Louis Jouvet pour son célèbre film. Non?

Very nice shot! A mystery indeed, will we know which "famous" person it was?

You have to be very quick to catch a great shot like this Genie. What an elegant shoe. Makes me think of old movies with Fred Astaire.

A mysterious messenger...Love the idea to use this picture as the beginning of a story!

Alexa said...

Given the location, my first thought was Jean-Pierre Aumont—but he's been dead for about 10 years, so . . . is it Peter? At any rate, this is very cool, and so perfect in b&w.

Love the black and white.

Hitchcock apparaissait toujours dans ses films car il manquait de figurants...
Très jolie photo...

C'est très intéressant. La photo noir et blanc est très forte. Mais qui? Je ne sais pas.

Amazing photo Genie.
Maybe Nicolas Sarkozy paid you a visit to welcome YOU to France!!!
He's a very dapper dresser!!
Don't you forget to tell us now!!

Now, HERE is a shot that just cried out to be rendered in black and white. Great eye and great composition, Genie. It looks like my shoe, but I swear I wasn't there!

I do not know this mysterious man's name but I think that I have a photo and will post it soon. He does have nice shoes and a lively step, bien sûr!

Thank you for your comments... I am catching up after many flight mishaps between Thursday and last night getting home. Merci!

this is a wonderful image, genie — yes. full of mystery - and the play on black and white is stunning.

This reminds me a a 50's mystery film. Excellent shot.

It could only be Peter.

A job for M. Poirot!! Eye-catching, creative shot -- B & W rules!!

Definitely a Hitchcock opening!!!

Marie-Noyale said...

Just the name of the place...
could be the cover of a French 'Polar"!!
