Timeless shot.

OK, we win - we will be there all of May. Join us. It's my wife's 60th birthday. I said Paris or diamonds. She said both and I said, non-non, so its Paris.
Yes Genie - the waiters are cute.

Nice capture!

The guy must have ordered something really good, for the smile on his face...
God bless you!

you've sent us on a virtual journey to this delightful moment. we are sitting just beside you, adjusting our scarves and waiting for this young waiter to turn his attention to us.

Great shot...throw in a little pastis on the side...

Vreni said...

I want to be there, too!!! "Les Philosophes", I guess?

Kate said...

I don't think that you are the only one who would like to be in Paris right now. Like the B&W with this photo. Never gave much thought to the attractiveness of waiters; perhaps I'll notice more now, but maybe it's just Paris waiters?

M said...

I think it's their attire --- crisp white shirts, vests and long aprons .... Looks and attitudes don't hurt either ;)

Stan said...

hello Genie -- have to start catching up again -- sigh -- Another gem for your portfolio!! We don't have to travel to Paris ourselves -- we just peruse your wonderful gallery.

Randy said...

I have to agree, this guy made for the perfect shot.

Julie said...

The fact that they are more often than not, young males?

This is Belgium said...

moi aussi !

Virginia said...

I wouldn't mind sitting next to the gentleman either! :)

Don't regret it too much, it's chilly and grey! You may have to sit inside! :-)

I think a high percentage of them seem to be very appealing young men Genie, and also they look so handsome in an apron haha!

TheChieftess said...

I think it's the long apron Genie!!!

Of course...the fact that he's good looking doesn't factor in at all!!!

Yes photogenic, I also like the motion captured. Its kind of routine, but with b/w and an interesting composition becomes attractive!

Nat said...

People watching in Paris... a great pastime :-)

One of my favorite activities in Paris, is to watch irate American tourists (which the gentleman with the paper obviously isn't) jump up and leave in a huff because the waiter didn't rush over and "introduce" himself.

Me too. The Marais is my favorite district.
