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

Bonsoir Genie. It's Spider Man, or rather his French cousin, l'Homme Araignée, taking enormous risks to be included in your photo! ;-) Bon weekend à toi aussi. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Darn that glass ceiling! It's only ever the men who get above it.

this is Belgium said...

very curious to find out, Genie

Pet said...

Siesta time? :-)

Paris Paul said...

LOL @Dive!

But once men get to the top, they feel stuck and just want to escape.

No fair Genie, I've just about been standing on my head to figure it out, I just can't decide what is reflecting what!!! A revolving door isn't involved somehow is it??

Strange place for a nap!

brattcat said...

I can't remember the name of it but that looks like a car store that we went in on the Champs Elysses. (Darn. I don't know how to spell it.) At least I think it was selling cars, but I don't see any cars in your picture????

Halcyon said...

An interesting reflection, I think!

Malyss said...

Alexa said...

Was thinking that it must be a mannequin reflected in the glass ceiling, but a mannequin would have a better bod, no? So is it a real person?

Kim, USA said...

Oh this is a very nice reflection. The man looks surprised ^_^

It almost looks like he's lying on the ceiling.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, how fun, Genie! I love it! You do find the great ones! This one takes the cake!! It does almost look as though he is lying on the ceiling! Wonderful smile for my morning, mon amie! Enjoy a beautiful, fun weekend!

Kris said...

Is he walking up a staircase? Or is he walking on a glass ceiling? Maybe it is a reflection?

i hope it's not someone in heaven!

James said...

LOL! Looks like he's doing a little fixing and cleaning with his screwdriver and spray bottle. Very cool and unexpected capture.

Clueless in Boston said...

Did he break through the glass ceiling?

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

You are all so clever! l'Homme Araignée! Glass ceiling! Dive, so funny and brattcat with an out-of-body experience; trapped in the glass ceiling... Alexa, I agree! Jenny, I do not think that he is in heaven.

This is a restaurant just to the side of Église Saint-Roch with a surround of glass and a class ceiling. My head just about whipped around when I felt that I was being watched as we walked by... AND... there he was carefully suspended between the glass ceiling and the roof, balancing on the metal bars. One false move and he would come crashing down.

He probably wonders "what were they thinking" when they designed this ceiling! There are some reflections but yes, he really is suspended above the glass ceiling.

Now, he is famous on my blog.

Enjoy your weekend!

Bises,
Genie

He really did take "window cleaning" to a whole new dimension! Great capture, Genie!
