Partners


The dancers on rue Mouffetard each Sunday have provided me with endless pleasure and many photographs.  You met this lady and gentleman here.  Today, they dance for you.

I'm always surprised to see that they're usually not very young,But their passion for dance keep them young.

I LOVE IT. These two are most definitely SO PARISIAN...look at her, she is quite older, but chic forever. Ah...les français! Anita

They look like they were born to dance! The lady looks so graceful!

La dame ne veut pas faire un faux pas, elle semble très concentrée!

Hi ! I went to rue Mouffetard for the very first time not so long ago and loved the Sunday market atmosphere. You captured that feeling in a very awesome manner

I love this photograph! It is always a pleasure to see your photos each day! Thanks so much!

Janey and Co. said...

Beautiful! I think we should all go dancing once a week

Daryl said...

Love this shot .. love her concentration and poise .. and he's got his moves down doesnt he

Jacob said...

Quintessential Paree! Isn't it wonderful how people in the City of Light seem so much freer and more able to express themselves than people in Memphis or Ocala?

Jack said...

Nice, Virginia, This is an absorbing pairing of two people I wouldn't see as being together.

Starman said...

I can almost hear the music.

Alexa said...

I just love your shots of the rue Mouffetard dancers. This one seems fitting in b&w—she almost looks like she could be from another time. Très sympa, V!

Hi Virginia,

Love the black and white photograph of the dancers.
What it tells me is no matter what age you are, you can do anything and enjoy life.

Happy week
hugs
Carolyn

Virginia said...

Costas, I'd love to but I'm afraid we'll be called a pair "of a certain age" and everyone will marvel that we can still hobble around! HA

I'm glad you all enjoyed this couple as much as I did. In looking back over my photos from different trips, I believe I"ve photographed them with other partners. It's seems to be a group of faithfuls that gather each week with others that join in. They dance with each other and anyone brave enough to put down their camera and try it. Don't worry, I stayed firmly on the curb snapping away. I know my place!

Paris Paul said...

Obviously very dedicated and focused on their craft...

Julie said...

I suspect each of the dancers delight in the attention. They were a disappointment the one only time I remembered to get myself down there on a Sunday afternoon. I shall be much closer next May, so shall try to get there more often. A glass of vin always helps my 'eye' unwind, too.

James said...

Excellent photo! I'd love to watch this myself.
