A photo very well done!

Well, if he works at La Comédie Française, he could be an actor... dressed for the part ;-) I would ask him two questions: 1. Monsieur, are these real tatouages (tatoos) ? 2. Où est garée la Harley? (where did you park the Harley?) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Hehe, maybe he's NOT a parisian!:o)

With his ink and emblems, this fellow would almost qualify for one of your Paris Rouge photos, V.

Someone needs a hug.

M said...

Rats! Shell beat me to my comment! I too think he has a touch of Paris Rouge!

Harriet said...

Quite at odds with the beautiful balcony.

Great capture and it would have lost its "flavor" in b/w... Paris rouge, indeed!

Daryl Edelstein said...

Looks a bit like Ricky Gervase when he was pudgy

Alexa said...

Great capture, V! I say he's an actor, in full costume. And I'll go out on a limb here and guess that they are NOT doing "Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme."

What were the Hell's Angels doing in Paris?

Leif Hagen said...

He's an interesting, colorful chap, non?

And not all Parisians have the best macarons in hand, because my boss just handed me the BEST one I've ever eaten! From Miette in San Francisco.

Awesome photo op! I know a few French guys who look just like this. :)

Jack said...

This one is great, Virginia. I wish I took it. When do you go to Paris?

V, You never fail to surprise and amaze us! Great "catch", so to speak, in so many ways.

The people I see in Paris are usually much more elegant, he really sticks out, especially on the balcony of the Comédie Francaise!
