Dimanche Sur Rue Mouffetard IV - La Grande Dame



This lovely lady is in her 90's and from what I was told, she is there every Sunday rain or shine, year round. I photographed her last summer right here. This day she was doing a French line dance and having a swing with the dancer I featured yesterday. I think she is just ......grande!

I will be offering another 5 week series of photography classes, here in Birmingham, on Monday, July 26 from 1-3pm.
These classes are designed for amateur photographers that want to take better family and vacation photos. Contact me if you are interested.

Look at that beautiful face - so happy and full of Joie de Vivre!!
AND I'm sure she'll be there again next year.

I'll be grateful to have that spring in my step when I'm 90 ~ delightful, V!!

She looks much younger than "in her 90s"! A beautiful woman. Maybe dancing keeps one young!

She is exactly who I want to be when I grow up: vivacious, chic—and dancing every Sunday in the rue Mouffetard!

She's as lovely as the flowers in your header which made me inhale deeply with envy when I saw them

Virginia, and everyone,

Thought you,and some others might enjoy this website about Hemingway,and his experiences in Paris and Europe. I look at it most every day, as I do your website, as well.

Enjoy! Gary

Start with Kirk Curnutt's interview,and go back to read older posts. He talks a lot about Papa,and Fitzgerald in Paris!

I also highly recommend Kirk's book, COFFEE WITH HEMINGWAY. I have a signed copy!

Gary,
Bienvenue! I'm so glad you have left us this great link. Merci.

Yes I agree with all of you that she is just a lovely lady and looks and acts much younger than her years. I hope I can follow in her footsteps!!

I would never have guessed she is ninety.

Hey V:
Loved watching the dancers with you (and dancing)! Too bad it was a rainy day. I like your LinkedWithin widget. I'm going to try to add it to my blog too. Thanks for the idea!

I have mentioned this dancing to my travelling companion and we will be there on our first day in Paris, Sunday 19 September.

PS. My grand-daughter has arrived. Alannah Jane.
