French girl - reflecting


Sitting in the window of Fauchon on Place de la Madeleine,
this young woman was reviewing her journal,
perhaps waiting on a friend, reflecting in the winter Paris sun.

Definitely a French girl


bon weekend

I agree with Sam ... This does look like a painting! Beautiful photo and I must say --- Elle est une fille Française bien sur!

oh no genie, not a french girl, a parisian (means she can be american, no problem if she lives in paris since about a year). visit berry, or vosges and tell me!

She might have been on my blog today but mine over a titch overexposed. Yours is much better! Wasn't she cute.

She's trying to decide whether or not to leave the nasty comment she wrote about her boyfriend.

Kris said...

Yep, she is definitely a French girl. Look at how stylish she is dressed! Perfect!

Alexa said...

I agree with not just French but Parisienne—and you've captured her so well, Genie!

Stan said...

Literally and figuratively reflecting -- a fine catch!!

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

Definitely bien dans sa peau. Another wonderful image Genie.

This photo would make a lovely painting. Great shot!

Randy said...

Lovely, great reflection too.

Jack said...

Definitely a French girl. I don't usually think very much about women clothing and accessories, but the way her coat and the bag interact with each other is pretty cool.

James said...

Bien sûr, elle est française! Great shot!

Catherine said...

Lovely shot of a reader - it looks like a painting...

Gine said...

Une scène intimiste ... le livre doit être passionnant, ou le bus très en retard !

Nathalie said...
