So Parisien! I love it. Time for lunch!

Love this shot with reflections from a mirror - no one has a clue they are being photographed - just perfectly natural.

Nicely done, Virginia. Showing it in black and white makes it timeless.

Bien fait! I just got back last night (less than 12 hours ago) and am slowly decompressing... I had lunch at Cafe Nemours near the Palais Royal, is this the same place? We were outside...

You caught Jacques doing what he does best! I love looking at your Paris blog every morning - a great way to start my day with a little dream of our next trip to Paris!
Merci mille fois, V!

Wow, what a blog! I mean, you just have so many guts to go ahead and tell it like it is. You’re what blogging needs, an open minded superhero that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. This is definitely something people need to be up on. Good luck in the future, man.

The reflection is so clear, it's like looking through a window.

Virginia said...

how fun that some of you recognized this waiter. I spotted one that was behind the bar that day but had served us champagne in '09!!!
