The Conversation


Seldom have I crossed the beautiful courtyard of the old Hôtel de Sully, now the Centre des Monuments Nationaux, at the Place des Vosges and not seen young people sitting in these doorways have a quiet chat. I thought this young couple especially charming.

What a great scene and a wonderful doorway too. When I look at your pictures I get a feeling sort of like the one I used to get when I was a kid looking at a Christmas catalog and counting down the days to Christmas. 83 days to go!
J'aime paris! :)

A lovely shot of Paris life, Virginia.

Dream life! Romance in Paris :)

Genie said...

Virginia, the courtyard is beautiful but you captured the human detail in this sweet couple.

Laurent said...

Oui, absolument charmant. The atmosphere is just perfect

M said...

Virg, you really captured the moment!

It looks like there should be an advertisement for something in the space above them. Something like, "with Cologne d'Amour, she won't be able to take her eyes off you."

Charming indeed and perfection in monochrome

They only have eyes for each other (and are clearly oblivious to your camera, V). The whole composition is special.

Now, if we could just hear what they were saying...

James,
83 days till Paris? Oh my , I am so envious. Can't wait for your photos.

Owen,
Actually you were right there with JB, Mary and Peter when i took this one! ;)

thanks everyone. I love this kind of photo that I only seem to discover in Paris. It's a photographer's dream as you all know.

To think I almost missed this one. When I have some ducets, I'm buying this.
