Caught Red Handed


I'm pretty good at photographing Parisians on the sly, but Monsieur looked up just as I was taking this shot!  I'm afraid I interrupted their afternoon chocolat chaud!  Galerie Vivienne, if memory serves.

Monsieur is a Frenchman, and as such, caught a glimpse of a lovely blonde snapping away outside the window... :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Chocolat Chaud in Paris would taste different than anywhere else in the world.

I'm sure he took one look at your charming smile and friendly wave and was glad of the experience, dear V.

What a charming couple and I am sure Monsieur did not mind at all.

This reminds me of when I was caught by a rather stern Madame sketching in front of a hat boutique in the 6th...it's part of my post on June 3rd: "Wandering the Saint Sulpice Neighborhood". Your image & text is bringing back the Paris Dream...Merci!

Boy, I would sure enjoy a cup of chocolat chaud and one of those delicious looking pastries! I'm sure Monsieur didn't mind the photo, he was probably just surprised to see to taking their photo. :)

Yikes—I'd probably gain a few pounds by osmosis just being in the vicinity of all that good stuff! Hope Monsieur was flattered.

He was probably wondering why you were taking photos instead sitting inside drinking chocolat chaud.

I love photographing people but I hate getting caught. You did a good job at sticking to your guns and getting the shot. I usually try to play it off like I'm taking a picture of something else. :)

Your memory seems to be in very good shape! :-)
