Meet mon ami Serge. I really like this portrait of him. Serge and Caroline live in Chalmaison, France. I loved getting to know them this past summer. The dinner we shared in their lovely home was just a very special evening, and one I'll not forget.

Leave a comment letting my know that you'd like to be included in the drawing on Christmas Eve! Bonne Chance!

Cheers to you Serge!

I think your French experiences have been much better than mine. I'm that guy at the party who's hiding in the corner, hoping no one will try to talk to him.

He looks like he knows his wines, Virginia!

Virginia said...

WEll Starman, in Paris the waiters will do just that unless you flag them down. :) Aw now, i want you to get out there and find some French Strangers to photograph just for me!!

Shell, he does!

Marie, :)

Virginia said...

And Starman, if we're ever at the same party, never fear, I'll find you ! HA

I've been taking a hiatus and now trying to catch up with all the blogs. Of course yours in the one I most want to read and devour the photos.
Put me in the drawing for the calendar, please.
Hope you have the greatest of holidays ever this year! Hugs.

Serge looks as if he might have memories of WWII. WWII history buff «Louis» would like to hear those stories. That was a horrible time in France, whether in occupied France or Vichy France.

Virginia said...

Glad to see you back here! You're in girlfriend!

You would like Serge very much. Such a nice man with a wonderful sense of humor!

If you find me at the party, be gentle. Their willingness to wait until you call for l'addition, is one of the things I like most about dining in France.
