Le joueur d'orgue



 We continue on our little trip to the grande brocante. Today, another bright spot, the organ grinder.  He was a happy fellow and some even danced. Mary and I did not.

I've included a BW and color photo in a feeble attempt to please all of the readers all of the time. HA!

Monsieur Organ Grinder looks like a very jolly fellow. Such a nice way to liven up the streets.

What a wonderful experience! Shades of so long ago. In all my years of living in France I have yet to come across Monsieur Organ Grinder.

Looks wonderful no matter how you color him! How delightful -- I've yet to meet an organ grinder, but I'd love to! Seems so classic!

Love the B& W portrait Virginia, what a very impressive mustachio!

With all the gloom and doom in the USA what a refreshing and uplifting sight to start my day. Thank you for this photo. It is a gentleman like this that is a true artist and teacher.

I like the B& W portrait!

Your "feeble" (not!) attempt worked with me. I love his face—and his jaunty casquette!

Virginia said...

Mary, that is up for some discussion!

There used to be an organ man who walked around the streets of the 12é with his daughter. I think I'm the only one in our block who gave them money.

There is a great face for you! This time I prefer the black and white, probably because you came in closer and eliminated everything except the intriguing face.
