What caught my eye first and foremost in the photo above was not
just the cobblestone alley filled with people…
but the gentleman with the dark grey shorts on the right.
His hands are in his pockets….
the black vest a bit slouchy over his long sleeve white shirt.
I hadn’t meant to take people photos…
i was just taking a photo of an alley.
There just happened to be a lot of French men heading to and fro.
I’m heading out to buy Bryan some new grey shorts this morning.
Darling French vespa man smoking a cigie.
This is little Madeleine…..
even though violet had a red coat on.
I coveted that red coat.
All the girls had bangs.
I have an appointment tomorrow with my stylist.
I’m going to get bangs.
i realize i haven’t had bangs in 25 years…
but i will have bangs as of tomorrow.
this next girls was gorgeous.
And i think she was only 13 or 14.
She was with a bunch of girlfriends…
and at the time i took the photo..she was being talked up by one of the
artists at Montmartre.
He was trying to draw her…then her friends all walked away
while she was stuck.
She reminds me of what i looked like when i was 13.
Except i was overweight and had an acne problem….
and i don’t think i could put an outfit like this together.
I almost brought this boy home with me….
the problem was…
i tried to take his hand and pull him away…
but his dad yelled something in French.
I swear it sounded like he yelled..
get more macrons at the bakery.
So we did.
This is where we met Fredrick.
Fredrick is the nice boy who runs the patisserie in St. Remy.
I’m sure Kim might have a good photo of Fredrick.
Fredrick wouldn’t look up at me….
but he looked up at Kim.
I bought macrons anyway.
Lola would have closed her eyes as well as soon as she saw me taking a photo.
I’m going to go and buy a new scarf for lola tomorrow.
I’m also going to learn to braid hair again.
I don’t know if i told you how hard the trip was on Kim…
she had a heck of a time with the stick shift of the car we rented.
Needless to say….
i believe i was doing all the navigating and the map reading.
I even had to parallel park us at one point…
but more to come on that later.
I also think Kim smoked one tooo many cigies……
