There is a story here.
In April, I returned to the thrice-weekly marché in Place Maubert to deliver a portrait that I had taken in June 2010. As I have mentioned before, I carry back to Paris on each trip a small folio of portraits that I have taken. When possible I deliver the photograph to the subject, reminding them when the shot was taken. Although I am a master of stealth photography almost all of the "returns" were taken with permission.
So, back to the story... In April I was delivering the photo below and this fellow in yellow saw the exchange asking if he was not handsome enough to have his photo taken. Bien sûr! When I arrive in Paris in three weeks I will have the top photo tucked into my bag and will find him to renew acquaintances. I always enjoy the triangle-folded treats from these vendors and in April they would not let me pay.
Nothing like making friends in Paris, n'est-ce pas?
