This young artist with his interesting attire, was very focused on his lovely rendering of the Canal Saint-Martin.

Love Canal st Martin. The Canal boat cruise is one of my favorite things to do in Paris (on a sunny day, bien sûr) -- Lovely shot. Beautiful light. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Wonderful, V! You were close enough to see his sketch and it looks as if he did not even mind. You captured his intense focus and steady hand.

He looks very cool! And I see it's true, spots and polka dots really are 'in' at the moment.

A wonderful portrait of that artist and his sketch! We had a blind painting friend over for dinner last night - she's our adopted "Auntie Annie!"

Artist will always be drawn to Paris for inspiration I think, from the little peek of this artists work when you pull the image right in, Paris is working it's magic. You've captured him well Virginia.

For some reason, so many of your photos bring memories to me! :-)

He looks like he's wearing his pajama top.

You know how much I love your portraits, V! There's just something special that you're able to capture. Brava once again.

Paris Paul said...

This is close to where I live! I should go find this guy and ask him to give me a discount because I know you...

Virginia said...

Paul, Well you just go and try and let me know how that works for you! HA

Peter, You know why.......you're always right there waiting for me to take "just one more shot, Peter!"

Carlo, Welcome and thank you.

Alexa, I love portraits more and more.

Good place for a stroll on a nice day... have you ever stopped in the Hotel du Nord along the canal for a drink ? They were doing concerts for a while, some excellent talent performed there from time to time, people like Bruce Cockburn or Loudon Wainwright, and other well known musicians... another Paris treasure...
