Marché Bastille - Un chapeau rouge


Seen in Marché Bastille in April
I was tempted to buy a hat while the eyes kept watch.

Guess which hat I would choose?

You're a red addict, so the answer is easy! :o)

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Haha! that may be a lot easier than the other puzzlers you've shown us lately Genie!! Love it.

Richard Moisan said...

Le rouge, bien sûr.
Et j'espère que tu vas faire une photo pour qu'on te voit avec!

Gringo said...

Yes! Really great shot! Nice one Genie.

Too funny! My mom just bought a Panama Hat, which was made in Ecuador, er, in Provence. And, hmmm, one of those hats is not like other...

s.c said...

Nice one Genie.Think how it must be in the old days when you wanted to make a picture like that.

biebkriebels said...

I have never wore a hat, but if I were you I think you should wear the red one?

Steffe said...

Cool cutout.

Joe said...

Cool photo Genie. Great idea to show one hat in red.

Ann said...

Definitely you'd go for the red one.

Oh the eyes,

really interesting shot ♥

Love the pop of red!

You're getting me excited about the markets . . . .

Nathalie said...

Un chapeau rouge bien sûr, à offrir à Virginia !

J'ai adoré la petite fille et sa poussette hier. Adorable.

Randy said...

I love it!

Kris said...

But of course it would be the red one! I love men's hats especially the panama straw ones.

Rob-bear said...

No surprise here. I'm confident you'd pick the red hat.
All made by The Mad Hatter, I presume.

I like this photo

Sylvia K said...

What a fantastic capture, Genie!! I love it!!! Hmmmm now which one would I choose??? Such terrific composition and the perfect spot of color! Have a lovely evening, mon amie!

Hugs

Malli said...

Lady in Red??? LOL!

Starman said...

I would chose the one with the sign on it.

Alexa said...

Hey, I know a rhetorical question when I hear one!
:~} What fun, Genie. I've been w/o Internet over the weekend, but loved both your posts (esp. the adorable petite parisienne!).

this is Belgium said...

winking at you... trying to figure out how to get on your head... maybe next time ?

Jack said...

This is a fun picture, Genie. YOU would get the red hat. I -- being a suave and debonair cosmopolite -- would get a wide brimmed white hat.

Loree said...

Perfect! I would choose the red hat for sure and I think you would too.

Malli said...

Thanks for dropping by ...in answer to your question regarding the photo....yes, they are figs and here's my recipe if you are interested

Congratulations for your sharp vision, the beauty and detail that make a difference!
Gorgeous blog!

louciao said...

Un chapeau pour aller avec ton blogue. Quelle bonne idée!

Palomasea said...

Chere Genie,

So very nice to meet you!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and for such kind words regarding my grandmother. She is in my heart every day!

I really love your blog. I am now following. You too fell in love with Paris at a young age? I was about 10 years old when I decided to check out some French phrase books from the library. I've been smitten ever since! Thank you for gracing us with your impeccable eye for this city of our dreams...

All the best to you!
Bises,
- Irina

Paula said...

Very clever, I think a chapeau rouge is just the ticket! I could find you in any crowd.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Yes, it was a rhetorical question and you all knew the answer. Truly, all of the hats were shades of white and black/browns... except the lone red hat. Even in the color photo, the red just stood out.

Based on a suggestion from Nathalie about another photo question, I found a youtube video that told me how to do the "color" in a b/w. As "sc" said above, it would have been quite a challenge in the days of film!

Did no one notice the "eyes that kept watch?" The female in a hat peers out at us partially hidden by the rack of hats... She was the one that caught my eye.

Thank you to my new commenters and followers. Many thanks to all.

Bises,
Genie

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

Loving your photo shots!

Stan said...

Wow! Spectacular!! You would have chosen the one on sale --lol

VenetiaMicio said...

C'est beau le noir et blanc avec une touche de rouge !
Ce Panama rouge pourrait venir se joindre à mon parapluie rouge à Venise !
à bientôt Genie
