The Waiter


I recognized this handsome waiter at Nemours from another trip to Paris. That sunny afternoon he served us champagne outside. This rainy January day, we had a cozy lunch inside.  I'm amazed at how many photographs I snapped from my seat that last day in Paris.

Un lieu bien distingué tout comme le serveur...
Gros bisous et merci pour cette belle photo.

I am not amazed that you look around, see, take it all in, and then photograph vividly and splendidly. Not amazed or surprised. I think it's in your breathing.

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

OMG V. Your waiter looks JUST like my old boyfriend. Wait. That IS my old boyfriend!!! -- Kidding. ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

He could play the young Mr Big in SATC! I love Parisian cafes. x

You have a great eye, V.

I'm thinking he would catch my eye too!

I always hate that "last day" - the trip is over - gotta go home - zut alors!
Quand meme, bon weekend chere V de B!

Daryl said...

I can see why he was memorable ..

Ha ha! I tried taking pictures of waiters when I was in France, but I was just too conspicous. One at Le Comptoir des Saint-Peres looked exactly like a children's book character called Prince Cinders. The other, at the Auberge Ravoux, was the spitting image of Neville Longbottom.

I like your new banner!
Does he know that he is now famous among the blogosphere?...:o)

Virginia said...

Malyss, I am going to try and take some prints to Paris for my "favortes"! :)

Pup, Well I call this one Monsieur Dreamy! HA

Leif, The last day is always bittersweet.

Lynnette, What is really funny is I hesitate to ever pull my camera out in a cafe. This day, I was in Last Day Mode and was snapping everything that stood still long enough. I've posted at 4 or 5 photos from that one luncheon!

La Petite Gallery said...

Yep, he is handsome, but I snapped a photo of the famous Bartender at P.J.Clarks in NYC, he was also a cutie pie.
Our minds seem to be intune.

Definitely a blog-worthy specimen, ce jeune homme! I always get even more snap-happy on the last day, trying to take as many pics as possible before I have to get on that darn plane.

Jack said...

C'mon, Virginia, just say it. You had the hots for this guy. It is OK to have a little crush.

Natalie said...

Love the way you change banners. This one is gorgeous and you use such a delicate font.
The water is really Mr.Big just more handsome. Did you catch his smile?

Virginia said...

Jack, Guilty as charged. Le sigh........ :)

Natalie, I have a short attention span so the banners change, the songs change......you just never know! :)

Alex, I think we are kindred spirits Darlin'!

Jilly said...

Love it! It might be interesting in black and white too...
