Rue Auber - le serveur



2012 Oct 6 Saturday_8DSC_8602


A cafe on Rue Auber


A classic street scene in any part of Paris.  
This cafe is just around the corner from Cafe de la Paix 
and probably not as expensive.  


You still get a great view of Palais Garnier 
from this sidewalk terrace.

Been there.

Classic, to be sure. I like how the waiter's face echoes the customer's.

Melbourne should implement cafe chairs facing the street like this. Such a terrific way to engage with a friend while enjoying the antics of every day life. Superbe!

You are brave to take so many photos of people. How far away from them were you?

I love the boots that woman is wearing. Probably not the focus of your photo though. Smile.

Jeanie said...

Like this one very much, Genie!

... and the coffee (or the wine...?) is certainly at least as good! :-)

Sure—this is where the smart people park themselves instead. :~} Et monsieur a l'air très aimable.

Waiters in Paris are just a magnet to my camera lens. I had to crop out a touristy little boy to save this shot!

Paulita, I snapped this for the waiter, but when I got it home, the boots caught my attention, too!

Duncan, I am careful in taking shots and this was taken on a busy sidewalk from a distance. I do not take a full face shot without permission (usually).

Starman, I have not, but it is busier than the Café de la Paix around the corner. That probably has something to do with the prices.

Bises,
Genie

Classic street scene in Paris is exactly right! Is there anywhere else that waiters wear these vests and full length 'skirts'?
