Le Nemours - être obligé d'attendre




Kept waiting at le Nemours....


At least there is much to catch one's interest near Palais Royal,
Comédie Française, Place Colette...


How about a glass of bubbly?

I do love your "people" shots, Genie! The expressions on their faces are terrific! Your post is always a lovely way to wind down my day! Thank you! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy, mon amie!

Hugs

Une coupe de champagne ? Oui je veux bien alors un champagne rosé et pourquoi pas un Roederer ?... Très jolie capture que cette scène...
Gros bisous.

Café Nemours is the perfect place for waiting and watching people!

Raymond had just ordered a cafe au lait from Le Nemours when suddenly there was the crash of breaking glass demanding his attention and that of the waiter. Mon Dieu! A crate of Bollinger destined for the cellar had toppled off the back off a trolley. Bubbles effervesced along the gutter. A look of dismay soon morphed to horror.

Kristin said...

Yes, please!!! A glass of bubbly and I could sit there for hours. Have a lovely day!!!

Cezar and Léia said...

Great b&w picture!

I enjoy how I sometimes make up stories on my mind about your pictures... This is a sad one because now I'm thinking maybe he is waiting in vain, the girl won't show up... see my mind is terrible.

So lonely...

M said...

I think he needs a bit of conversation. Let's sit down by him, order some bubbly, and chat him up until his date arrives!

Virginia said...

Ahh I recognize the waiter. I caught him taking a smoke break outside one day! And I'll have the bubbly! :)

There must have been something interesting. The waiter thought so too. :)))

Janey and Co. said...

I think they are both enthralled with the beautiful photographer!

Bubbly sounds tres magnifique, chere Genie!
Beautiful shot... I love the B&W, and wondering what the subjects are thinking about...

Look at those faces! Great scene. The framing of the picture sets the scene perfectly and the expressions set the imagination in motion. A perfect example of how to engage the viewer, Genie. Perfect in black and white.

Kate said...

Is that young man awake yet? Hurry, bring him some coffee! Loved your comment on my blog about "checking the rear view mirror"...

Kris said...

Great shot! He's a very handsome young man... perhaps waiting for the love of his life!

This is Belgium said...

instead of taking this photograph, Genie, beautiful as it is, would it not have been wonderful if you had sat down and started a lively southernese (as we call alabamian here at home) conversation?

Randy said...

Amazing b&w shot. Bring on the bottle!

Jack said...

I am guessing that there was a fine looking 20-year old woman off to the right, capturing the interest of both men. Right?

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

No,Jack, it was me - hahaha!

This is such a great spot from which to watch the world passing by that I could not help but turn the tables and watch the watchers.

Joe, I'll take the photos and you can write my stories... You always make me laugh or cry.

M, I talk to almost everyone, but this guy was intently waiting for someone.

Love the comments which means that my photo captured your imagination today.

Lynne, thank you, and I was lucky this day to get the expressions on both subjects which makes for a better story.

Bises,
Genie

Très belle scène choisie, ton oeil averti de photographe a su capturer cet instant, magnifique photo!!!
bonne journée
cath.

Starman said...

I wonder what it is at which they're staring so intently?

Mary said...

Ah! Perhaps his young lover is making him wait? :) Tsk tsk. He is quite handsome, and i doubt i'd keep him waiting long if he were 'mine'!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Two very different expressions here Genie. I don't know why but whenever I see one of your cafe scenes, whatever time,I get a very urgent need for a cafe au lait!!

Amanda said...

looked at differently, waiting can be a lovely form of meditation - especially if one is in Paris!

Nathalie said...

These two guys are obviously looking at something. I wonder what.
