Stepping out of the shadows


On the cobbled narrow Rue Cortot, we find this prince stepping out of the shadows of Musée de Montmartre. He may have disappeared by now.

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Awesome! I love le Petit Prince de St Exupery. It was good seeing him again. From a new follower, Veronique aka French Girl in Seattle (posting from Nice, Côte d'Azur for a few more days ;-)

Shell Sherree said...

Oh, sweet and drole! I love the way the sunlight falls on him, too. I hope you're having a beautiful week, Genie.

He looks as if at any moment he will step out of the doorway and race down the street! Great capture, Genie! ^_^

Funny fellow, looking handsome with his blond hair and waving scarf. What about your comment about the pond yesterday, I watched it closely and it is a frog. I don't think it is a fountain because there was another already in the pond. You are a keen watcher anyway!

Gringo said...

What a coincidence, I was only this week, browsing through the book....nice foto!

What a wonderful find.

dive said...

Sweet! I love the Little Prince, though this modern version of him looks more like Charlie from Charlie and Lola. I'll stick to the original I think.

What a wonderful find Genie, Montmartre is the most interesting place. Perfectly captured.

Halcyon said...

Glad you have this memory of him!

Birdman said...

What, pray tell, is it?

M said...

Oh, what a find! How cute!

Virginia said...

Seems to be paper glued on . I hope he is still there so I can find him myself!

Obviously not painted on the fence (or whatever the background may be), what was is made of?

Kris said...

Genie,

I love that! It is so sweet. I am a huge fan of the Little Prince.

Il ressemble certainement au petit prince de Saint Exupéry. Un petit prince qui pourrait marcher hors d'un mur.
Photo passionnante. Bien sûr!

Jean said...

Great picture. I am enjoying all the pictures from of this really beautiful country. Thank you for sharing.

Harriet said...

What a great find. Paris is always full of surprises and how fortunate we are that you have a keen eye to find those surprises!

Malyss said...

Did you draw a sheep for him? did you give him a rose?.. if not, maybe he's gone now..

Fábio Martins said...

The "guy" is so nice. Nice capture :)

Jack said...

Well, at least their street artists are fans of French literature.

Alexa said...

Nice find, Genie! I was kind of thinking what Dive said and wondering what St. Exupéry would think of this rendition.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

To all who recognized this prince I salute you. I knew him in an instant but preferred his old fashioned look.

Maylss, I should have offered him a rose!

He was found on the door leading from the street into the courtyard of the museum. My guess is that I will not see him there again, but one never knows.

I am in the land of "the mouse" again but will fly home tomorrow with the help of some Tinkerbell dust (and prayers for the Delta bird)

A bientot,
Genie
