Oakland Daily Photo said...

Oh, yeah. All she needs is a cigarette in her pouty mouth to make this scene complete. I've seen it. Honest.

J. Evan Kreider said...

This is precisely the type of detail I neglect to notice (my loss). Rendering it in B&W was an excellent choice, and the gradations of intensity are very good indeed.

it could be in milano...

Richard Moisan said...

Oh le joli talon!

Louise said...

I took a number of photos of tres stylish ladies in quite high heels knocking about on their Velibs!

Rob-bear said...

How terribly French of her.

Bibi said...

Indeed...une chic motocycliste!

M said...

She came zoom-zooming up the sidewalk and nearly ran us over! Then she went the wrong way up a one-way street and took off around the corner. But you, my dear friend, are a zoom-zoom photographer and captured her in perfect detail. Très bien!

Karen Xavier said...

Oh the picture speaks a lot. The shoes of her fashion sense, the bike of her rough and tough nature, etc,. The black and white is a +10

SRQ said...

I saw something similar around here recently and did a double take. Rather unusual.

this is Belgium said...

I like the heavy machine - high heels contradiction

Ninny said...

Never in America. Especially not Oklahoma where our interstates speed along at 75 mph not to mention the 30 mph wind gusts. Even wearing a scarf, our hair would be an owls nest by the time we reached our destination. But it would be fun to tootle around on a scooter in Paris, no mater the shoes.

Sylvia K said...

High heel contradiction indeed! What a great shot and you were "quick on the click"! I do love your people and places around Paris captures, Genie! Hope you have a lovely weekend, mon amie!

Hugs
Sylvia

Cezar and Léia said...

C'est difficile d'imaginer!Comment la fille peut conduire une motocyclette et porter de grands talons! Tous en faveur de l'élégance!
Moi j'aime beaucoup des talons aiguilles.Certainement ils ne sont toujours les plus confortables ou solides ...Quand même!Quelque fois,je prends une petite paire de ballerines dans mon sac à main!
(soyez prudent! mdr)

One expects no less in Parris.

Rob and Mandy said...

Oh yes, she's got the va-va-voum as well!

Kate said...

She certainly does have a well-turned ankle!

Kris said...

Ooh, It's a good thing she is wearing a longer length pair of pants or she might get one of those terrible burns from the exhaust pipe. I've gotten those before when I rode behind my brother and I never wore high heels! LOL

Cute shoes!

Kris

Loree said...

Oh wow. I could never ride a bike in shoes like that.

Alexa said...

You probably could have put her in your "Must Be a French Girl" series too, Genie. :~} Nicely done!

Paris Paul said...

A skillful capture if ever there was one...

Jack said...

If you think I am going to make a chauvinist comment about her ankle, you have another think coming . . .

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Alexa, I am adding her to "my collection" of French girls, and Jack, I would not think that of you.

Marie reminded me of the circumstances of the photo... She was definitely a woman on a mission and one accustomed to zooming! Also, you can see that her moto is well-equipped with a guard for the mud/rain/slush

Leia, j'adore les talons aiguilles mais les ballerines sont plus confortable.

I am high above the US flying to Las Vegas where I will be working for a week. I am combining some fun with Mr. Paris and my two girls joining me.

Bises,
Genie

Virginia said...
