Much more chic than any photo of me and my dog! :-)

beau gosse said...

A truly well behaved Baby she has! I would be nervous my little one would spy un chat ou un autre chien...jump off and give chase! Merci a toi, Genie pour le foto! (^_^)

Cezar and Léia said...

How cute, and the little friend is so easygoing there! :)

Tres chic. Very Parisian; stylish and laid back. I love her cycling shoes.

YONKS said...

She looks so nonchalant! Marvellous :-)

This looks like a vintage shot. Classy!

brattcat said...

Love this capture and look at those shoes!

M said...

Awwww - très mignon et très chic!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

What a perfect image Genie, doesn't she just look so elegant riding that bike, how many could pull that off! Wonderful in monochrome.

Rob said...

This is a sight we will NEVER see here; a bicyclist dressed in their finest, high heels and all. Excellent capture!

Aesthetic Alterations said...

She's perfect--and so is that cute dog!

Beautiful photo! Makes me want to
go back to Paris even more than I
do now...I thought that was impossible!

My Standard Poodle was too big to fit on the back of my bike. Besides, she was too eager to "get going" on her own four legs.
Lovely picture, Genie. You had to move fast to get that one.

Andy said...

I'm not used to seeing a well dressed cyclist.

Virginia said...

My all time fav photo!

Her little friend seems interested in where they are going...Love it!

Jack said...

Just another day of commuting in Paris.

Montreal Photo Daily said...

Oh yes, how the French love their doggies! So cute!

Halcyon said...

Only in Paris!

Stan said...

Where else but in Paris would you find a young woman so well attired [love those heels] on a bike? Really nice catch! I like your vignetting of this pic -- [I'm having trouble recognizing the dog].

Petrea Burchard said...

It's darling!

A big, belated happy blogiversary to you, Genie!

Loree said...

What a precious photo and a great capture.

Harriet said...

I had to stand up and view my computer screen from above to really 'see' the pup. Based on the ears, he/she looks so much like my Boykin Spaniel, Chloe -- but I don't think my Chloe (7months) would be so well behaved....nor would I venture to ride a bike wearing heels. Great photo!

Alexa said...

They both look very much "a l'aise" on their bicyclette! Not sure I'd ever wear heels while riding mine. :~}
But where are their helmets?

How precious and how nice that it's black and white.

I'm always impressed to see how wise and calm those dogs are..and how they LIKE to be carried that way!:)

Paris Paul said...

Not a courier, but she still should watch in case the dog decides to make a "special delivery"!

Dianne said...

Only in Paris Genie - would you see an elegant high-heeled madame riding le velo!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

She was so at ease and at the same time quite chic in her appearance... Little Toto, black as coal with a red collar perched himself assuredly in the basket. I imagine that it is just for him, for their excursions about Paris.

Both of them seemed quite comfortable with their transportation mode.

Thank you for all of your comments. This b/w is one of my favorites, but I would have preferred un chien blanc for the contrast. (Shhhhh, don't tell Toto)

Bises,
Genie

Carol Schiff Studio said...

Great shot and even better in black and white!

Randy said...

How can she ride with those shoes! Great b&w.

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

I guess is it possible to be elegant while on a bike! I want that bike...
