Quelques saint-Jacques sur un lit de poireaux fondus, je veux bien et vous ?... mais attention accompagné d'un bon verre de vin blanc.
Gros bisous et merci pour cette belle photo... Le regard est passionné.

Pretty picture! I like how they both focus and wait!

Dianne said...

Love those little touches of the scarf looped around Madame's neck and Monsieur's jaunty cap .... Oh so French!

Joe said...

Love the ladies expression. Very quizzical. Not sure if she is going to make a purchase or not.

{Hmm, I suspect I'd find it much harder to choose pastries.} This is a fabulous shot, V! The atmosphere and their expressions ~ wonderful.

An adorable couple. Looks like they aren't very happy with the prices. Her hands clenched in hesitation. Tough choice, so many options on a tight budget. Madame est triste.
Wonderful pic Virginia.

S'il te plait, remind me again as to where you are standing in the banner photo.

This shot of the market is really a great portrait of the couple considering their choices.

Kris said...

Great photo, Virginia! They look so deep in thought while trying to decide what they are going to purchase.

Virginia said...

Harriet, I was high atop the rooftop at Galerie Layfayette and most delightful place to take in a fine view!

Alexa said...

V, you have captured M et Mme Too Too Parisien! I think they're actually suffering from un embarras de choix—and I don't feel sorry for them at all.

You're right Virginia, it would be hard to make a choice, but oh how I'd like to be there to give it a go!! Fab B&W image.

I'm sure others have made this comment but her expression is just wonderful.

A decisive moment, as they say.
