At the Flower Shop - 100 French Strangers Challenge

French Stranger #40

I"ve been sitting on this delightful portrait since last June. This has to be one of my favorites!. I spotted le chien through the open door so I stuck my head in and asked to photograph him. Then his happy owner came over and was nice enough to pose as well! Aren't they a great pair?

Lovely portrait, I am not sure who is prettier the woman or her dog!

What a photogenic pair. Her eyes speak volumes. Nicely done.

What a classic. Her expression is so genuine and direct. And the dog seems like he gets that kind of affection from her all the time.

So, at last we got this photo; you talked about the shop, the lady and the dog!

Peter, Well I have to drag out the good stuff you know! :) I"m glad you remembered.

Yes, I found her enchanting. What a lovely lady. BTW, when can I purchase your fabulous book mon ami???

Merci everyone, I agree. I think she's one of my favorite "strangers". I went back to her flower shop in July but sadly she was not there that day. I hope she sees this post one day.

V, I think this is my favorite stanger picture yet - she is lovely and the dog is obviously well loved. A beautiful pair!
