Keeping Watch


Madame lives on a busy street in the Marais. Perhaps the noise is not so pleasant or maybe she's just having a look at what is going on below?

Great shot Genie. This "almost" reminds me of a great Hitchcock movie. Almost. That little French lady ain't exactly Grace Kelly though ! ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Viennese Girl Vreni said...

She doesn´t have any scarf... Is she really French? ;-)

Malyss said...

She's surely interested by something, but what?!

Your sound track is making this such a nice visit to your blog now...thanks for that..and I love this photo of a really genuine person "keeping watch". I wonder what she would say if she saw this...

Shell Sherree said...

You were in the right place at the right time yet again, dear V! She looks rather ferocious ~ perhaps she needs a macaron...

Sorry for calling you "Genie", Virginia! Yours and Genie's are the last blogs I read before crashing down for the night. Clearly, I was tired last night ;-) Veronique

Jack said...

Nice one, Genie. What do you mean, Genie and you aren't the same person?

Alexa said...

Madame looks un peu miffed. But I like Shell's idea for turning that frown upside down! (Always works for me.)

Janey and Co. said...

I think she looks lonesome :(

PerthDailyPhoto said...

She does look a little grrrrrrrr! Virginia, but she's doing it with a bit of French flair haha! Wonderful candid shot.

ParisienSalon said...

I envy her for her view.

Another fantastic picture of Paris life, Virginia!

Susan Campisi said...

I'm with Shell: give this woman a macaron!

Starman said...

She certainly looks less than friendly.

Catherine Robinson said...

Oh dear...she doesn't look happy :(
Well captured, Virginia!
Best wishes

Paris Paul said...

I bet I'd look happier if I lived where she does!

Virginia said...

Thank you all for your great comments today. I'm home from LA and getting back to visiting your blogs.

Virginia said...

And Veronique, not to worry about calling me Genie. I told Jack that we'd finally been "outed" as one in the same blogger! HA Since we met last May '10, we've said many times that we are twins separated at birth!

I feel like she is regretful about something... great picture.
