great photo.. keeps us wondering

Richard said...

Heu... Moi, j'aurais détourné les yeux!...

dive said...

Hee hee. You caught him just right, Genie. Wonderful.

Ann said...

Oh definitely ...

French girls never fail to turn heads around and get that look of admiration from strangers... ♥

Gringo said...

Ah, nice shot Genie. Right place and right time! I can see your camera is never far away.

Starman said...

Definitely Parisienne.

Cezar and Léia said...

Very elegant with that hat!But ...think about the long hair, so she could be also a Brazilian girl! :)
Long hair is very popular between Brazilian girls.

LOL

Great photo Genie. The guy on the bike adds so much to it.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Those shoes would send
Aimee into a frenzy Genie, they are so gorgeous. Love how you caught the bike rider having a good gander, mind you she does look stunning.

brattcat said...

be still my heart...what a wonderful capture, genie.

Louis la Vache said...

And «Louis» agrees!
;-D

M said...

Certainement! Perfect capture. I thought she was spectacular and so poised as she walked down that street perfectly put together!

Carol Schiff Studio said...

She has the style....love those shoes!!

Harriet said...

What style! You have composed this beautifully, capturing her from the back. And there was no fear of the bicyclist objecting to the photo because he was too preoccupied!

Grammy Goodwill said...

I would take a second look at her, too. I love her shoes.

Rob-bear said...

Une fille française. Naturalment, enchante.
Good snap, Genie.

Virginia said...

Who wouldn't take a second look. She looks so French and so stylish. The shoes are killers!

Sylvia K said...

I do agree, who wouldn't take a second look! And she does look SO French! Love the shoes -- been many years since I wore anything even similar!! The expression on the bikers face is priceless! Another terrific capture, mon amie!! Thank you so much for your good wishes, they are appreciated so very much! Enjoy the day!

Hugs,
Sylvia

Rob and Mandy said...

Mais oui!

jennyfreckles said...

Great candid shot. She does look stylish - dress like that round here and you would almost certainly be going to a wedding!

Alexa said...

Absolument! And must be a French guy too. :~}
Your timing is impeccable, Genie—well done, mon amie!

Loree said...

Lovely outfit. Impeccable taste.

Jack said...

Ooh la la, Genie. I am so disappointed in the cyclist. By his age, he should have perfected the technique of looking straight ahead and catching a good ogle from his peripheral vision.

Halcyon said...

For sure! No tourist would wear those shoes. :)

Bibi said...

Yep; the shoes, the stance...

Fábio Martins said...

Um bom retrato urbano. Parece que o ciclista ficou encantado com a beleza da senhora

Suzi said...

Doesn't she look divine...oh to be her for a day. I love the shoes! X

Suzi said...

Just had to Aldo say that my word verification was funny today "achoo" which is really funny because I have a cold x

Randy said...

Excellent capture! I love her outfit too.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I might have missed her but Marie spotted her walking so elegantly. I had to almost run to catch up with her before the light changed and she crossed the street.

Richard, I am sorry that I did not get her face, but can assure you that she was a beautiful as she appears from the back. The cyclist was not attempting to be suave with nonchalance, nor was anybody else in the vicinity.

She must be French and she carried herself with grace, not a haughty sway, but one of self-assurance.

Jack, I think that perhaps the cyclist had difficulty with the technique you mentioned, but after all, he was on a vélo.

The hat and outfit were perfection and the shoes were just divine!

Bises,
Genie

James said...

Yes indeed and I bet that's a French guy checking her out. :)

Viennese Girl Vreni said...

I love her shoes!! I´m not sure if the monsieur likes what he sees, he´s looking so serious...

Kate said...

Perfect example that "French Women Don't Get Fat"...also very stylish!

Aesthetic Alterations said...

Wow--what a beautiful woman. I love how she wears that bold dash of bright color. But most of all, I love that she's wearing a gorgeous hat and shoes with a touch of eccentric detail!

Alan said...

I suspect he'd have to brush up a little to grab her attention, she seems immaculately turned out!

Rebecca said...

I love this shot. What a great capture.

JM said...

What a great timing, Genie! I also love this shot.

Siddhartha Joshi said...

:) Nice one!

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Perfect shot, Genie! Yes, she is definitely a French Girl!

Rob said...

I wonder if the man on the Velib has a sore neck or if he fan into the back of a car. ;)

Ninny said...

Oh,those shoes! First the pastry and now the shoes! Genie, you just love to send me spinning.

ELFI said...

extra!
