Oh Pablo



November, 2014 marked the reopening of the Musée Picasso ,after an extended renovation. The Métros paid homage to him in many delightful ways. I like to think that my talented photographer friend Jean-luc Rollier's sense of humor that he often shares in his street photography, was my inspiration here.

I first met Jean-luc on Red Bubble where we both shared our images. That led to buying his street photography book on Blurb. When I was in Paris a few years ago, we arranged a meet up for coffee and he signed my copy. Since then, he's moved to the Brittany coast, so haven't met again, but I follow his work on Facebook, and we have continued our friendship there. Merci, mon ami.

An eye catching capture V. Humour can be a a wonderful inspiration and one I hope I can always rely on.

Thank you dear Virginia for this warm tribute. I am very happy and very proud to have been a ( just a little ...)
source of inspiration for you. Thank you for having remained faithful to our digital relations for lack of the reality...

A wonderful photo in the tradition of the Paris school of photography.

Pablo looks quite stern. There's one or two of his works here in our National Gallery.

Nice one. A fun bit of street photography. This is one that works well in black and white.
