Lovely, Virginia. These are the folks that my eye searches out. Just delightful ...

jb said...

Is that you and Peter...?

Éva said...

I like black&white!
But last Sunday was a very sunny, warm, colourful day. We took a walk and enjoyed spring colours.
The old pair? They are beautiful!

Sérgio Pontes said...

This back and white photo is very good, i like it

M said...

Delightful photo, Virginia. I love the contrast of the older couple with the younger one in the background. Bises!

Alexa said...

I was going to say what M said! The lady on the left is looking rather wistfully at the obviously devoted older couple and the gentleman on the right is staring fiercely—at you!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I saw that and then the younger couple between them... same story, newer version. Love this, V!

Virginia said...

Julie,
I thought of you when I took it!

JB,
Of course not. Do you see any cameras?? HA

Eva and Sergio, I thought BW was good for this as well. Merci

M, Genie and Alexa,
I got lucky with the people in the background!

MadAboutParis said...

That was a memorable stop - such fine people watching that day!

Daryl said...

Oh so amazing ... I saw a couple the other evening .. it could have been those two .. I wondered outloud to Toonman if I should get a cane so we could walk together like they were

wonderful shot Virginia! The woman walking toward you on the far left...she looks like a very young Queen Elizabeth!!!

this is Belgium said...

reminds me of where it all started, of a cartier bresson shot, very nice
greetings from brussels

Cezar and Léia said...

God bless you!

Pamela said...

Lovely photo!
Check out the older woman to the left...skinny tights and sexy winter coat!!!

V , I love your new profile photo! Beautiful!!

Virginia said...

Pamela,
Who on earth would be skinny enough to belt a puffy coat!!! Don't you love the elegantly dressed lady with her mink (?) hat and cute tights and chic coat? I love Monsieur with his dapper top coat and hat as well. They obviously took great care dressing for their outing that fine day in the park!

Jack said...

I think they are scheduled for matching hip replacements, after which they are going on Dancing with the Stars.

Dianne said...

Ah! only in Paris - the Madame is so elegantly attired in that zipper coat - I'd like one just like that with the man to match bien sur!!

Nathalie said...

A very sweet photo. I long thought my husband and I would finish our lives together... it was not to be.

May I make a small comment about your title ? It should read Dimanche AU jardin du Luxembourg... and not "à"
("au" being the contracted form of "à le" for masculine words).

Virginia said...

Thanks Nathlie. Google lets me down too often!

Starman said...

It's too bad Browning was quite wrong.

Virginia said...

Starman, I must disagree. I think it would be wonderful to have a soulmate to grow old with!

TheChieftess said...

I'm guessing it's the growing old part being the best to be that Starman is finding a contradiction!!! The soulmate part is a blessing at whatever age!!! Aging ain't for sissies!!!

James said...

What a wonderful capture. It's so heart warming.

Reese said...

So charming!

GeneMarine said...

Classic photo of the well dressed people of Paris. Older but elegant in all manner of being.

Interesting how the lady on the left, in the belted puffy coat, is dressed almost indentically as the younger woman! Thought that only happened in CA. ;-)
