Le Bon Marché - La Grande Epicerie de Paris

Le Bon Marché

Although you cannot take photos inside La Grande Epicerie de Paris*
you have ample opportunity to photograph through the windows.

I wonder if he even notices what is happening on the street.

*unless you are very tricky

Great shot! I've been taking a lot of photos of people through windows lately. I'll have to stop by here next time I'm in Paris. :-)

Joe said...

I think he is concentrating on the task at hand Genie. Cooling up a storm for some lucky diner.

William Kendall said...

I imagine he's much more focused on what he's doing at the moment.

Mary said...

He's very focused indeed! And whatever he's making, I'm certain it's exquisite!

Alexa said...

Imagine living right across la rue from this emporium of yumminess! ;~}

Jeanie said...

How wonderful. I should so like to be there right now!

Randy said...

He looks so serious.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Alexa, yes, indeed? Can you imagine?

James, this is along the side street, rue du Bac. If you like windows this is a chic, narrow street full of treasures.

Mary, I should have stopped to see what he was making!

I spent days here last month browsing things, buying chocolate eclairs and cooked food for the dinner table. This, along with le Bon Marche across rue du Bac, was my favorite department in town.

We stayed a few hundred metres away from Le Bon Marche on our Paris trip last year, and came to call La Grande Epicer the corner shop. Sure some things were very expensive (don't let the kids buy dragon fruit!), but you could buy staples- bread, cheese, tomatoes, yoghurt, and wine at very reasonable prices.
