Ah, the perfect capture of Paris!! Yes, I'd like to know their story, too! Terrific capture, Genie! Bravo! Have a wonderful evening, mon amie!

Hugs
Sylvia

Sweet capture.

What if they're married, but not together?.. :o)
How not to think about Doisneau?..

Meet Marie & Raymond; they first saw each on the banks of the Seine 15 years ago. Marie was young and Raymond bereft having lost too many dear to him. They shared their past, their stories their souls before parting returning to their regular lives. Raymond often visited the graffitied wall where they first met but this time it was different. Looking directly at him was Marie as beautiful as she was all those years ago.

They look married... but not to each other ;-)

Nina said...

Oh this is so lovely!!!!

brattcat said...

they kiss goodbye, then,
oblivious of the seine
kiss goodbye again

The photo is a story unto itself! Married couples can still be lovers, n'est pas?

Kris said...

I'm not sure what the story is behind this photo but I sure would like to know!

Great with never any concerns over PDA. That's why we like Paree in the springtime or for that matter ev'ry moment of the year...
et comme toujour, merci Madame!

Amanda said...

oh, but we all have a story for that photo dear genie ;-)

Alexa said...

This is terrific—but I want to see the photo Peter took!

(BTW, I have a poem in my pocket today; it's Balade des Dames du Temps Jadis, by François Villon!)

Starman said...

This almost looks like Lisa and Georges (friends in Montmartre).

Halcyon said...

Do you have a long lens? I would feel too embarrassed to shoot something like this. :)

biebkriebels said...

It is definitely spring in Paris.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Joe, you are definitely my romance writer - fabulous!

brattcat, thank you for the haiku, 5-7-5

Halcyon, I do have a telephoto lens but mostly I shoot quickly and sometimes miss. This shot was actually taken with a point in shoot as my Nikon broke on my last day in Paris. The point and shoot could be my "undercover camera" but it is bright orange and not a wise color choice!

Peter, I will be sending you the bribe money soon. Do you want that in Euros or dollars? hehehe

There is an openness in Paris and no one pays much attention to the couples in love... so great for a photographer...

Bises,
Genie

Bibi said...

Good one...and I like that they're an older couple in love, illicit or not!

Jean said...

Not only the City of Lights--but Love is all around.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Ahhh! love! Quintessential Paris!

Kate said...

You don't need a story; the kiss itself speaks volumes.

TheChieftess said...

Ahhhh...

Perhaps they're advertising models for the older version of Match.com!!!!

Stan said...

Warms my heart to see romance -- but, I hope they were not just tourists --lol--
