Jardin du Palais Royal - un skateboard


The Fountain at Palais Royal


This wide bowl of water with active fountains is not just for the retirees of Paris to prop their feet.  This twenty-something was reading, taking a moment to enjoy the quiet of the early morning.  He had the fountain to himself.

Ha, that's funny. I still picture grandmothers sitting beside the fountain and mothers with prams.

Nice to see even the skate borders take time to stop and smell the roses sometimes.

And the perfect transportation for a quick get-away when he is done! Great capture of a "not-so-traditional" Paris!

Probably zoomed in, and after a while zoomed away.

Here in the States, I don't see a lot of skateboarders reading while they take a break from zoom-zooming. Just sayin'.
