Paris Rouge LIX - Partners


Today, one of my favorite portraits. If Madame looks familiar, she should. I have photographed her three different visits to rue Mouffetard, as she danced with first one man , then another.  Is it any wonder. I think she is fabulous.  She was a late addition to my book, Paris Rouge Through My Lens.

I think Françoise Hardy should sing for you today right here.

She has a timeless beauty, Virginia. Nice portrait. I don't think I saw the pictures you posted last year, so I am glad you showed it again, this time in color.

Oh just wonderful Virginia. I adore your Paris Rouge photos. All of them!

I think she's fabulous too, V. I'm guessing she's quite magnetic in person ~ her dance partners would gravitate like moths to flames.

A lucky man to be able to dance with her and gaze into those welcoming eyes...

She is a gorgeous woman Virginia, she is a perfect example of how a woman 'of a certain age' as they say in France can still look fabulous! The feeling is mutual Virginia, about the getting to know you!

Beautiful portrait. A familiar face, I am sure to have her in some of my pictures taken there on Sunday around noon.

You have captured her beautifully, and how great that she knew to wear rouge!

What an evocative photo! Madame is wonderful. I'd like to have a glass of wine and some conversation with her.

And I'll bet each of her partners was made to feel that he was the only man in the vicinity! I recognized her right away, V. I'll bet she'd be very pleased to know she's in your book.

Voilà une scène comme on peu en voir de nombreuses, en France, le jour du 14 Juillet. Sur les places de village, alors que les guirlandes sont dans les arbres et que les jeunes garçons font éclater des pêtards. Le son de l'accordéon ou celui des petits orchestres amateurs illumine toute la nuit, comme les yeux de cette femme de la photo.
Bravo Virginie pour ce cliché!
