'no george bush!'

sighted: 20 arr., near pere lachaise cimetiere (where oscar wilde, proust, chopin, edith piaf, and jim morrison are buried), paris, sunday 1 april 2007, 6 p.m.

we couldn't resist capturing a moment of their lazy, people-watching sunday afternoon. we humbly admitted to not speaking very good french, but with the help of our translator and added savvy eye kendra, we all got to talking. when they found out a few of us were american they exclaimed 'george bush,' to which we responded 'noooooooooooooooooooooooo,' with emphatic hand gestures.


sighted: st. germain des pres, 6 arr., paris, saturday 31 march 2007, mid-afternoon.

the french know how to wear their scarves. the elastic of his jacket and the peek of red from his t-shirt is so classic and 'tricolour.' also loved the freshly pressed shirts coming up the road.

madame de saint eustache

sighted: outside saint eustache, rue rambuteau, near les halles, 1st arr., paris, sunday 1 april 2007, 12:45 p.m.

our jaws dropped at the sight of her. she marched across the square with an air of authority from another generation-another world. leather coat, black leather pants, silk scarf, that hat. ...unfortunately we missed a better shot of her shoes-cowboy boots.

sighted: rue oberkampf, 11 arr, paris, sunday 1 april 2007, 1:30 p.m.

sighted: cafe charbon et nouveau casino rue Oberkampf, 11 arr. (republique/bastille), paris, sunday 1 april 2007, mid-afternoon.

vincent sur le metro-savvy on the road-paris

sighted: sur le metro, on the way to bastille, friday 30 march 2007, about 10 p.m.

vincent glided down the platform and we followed. with the help of our lovely translator kendra, we were able to convey our enthusiasm for his sense of style and received permission to take his photograph. his jacket had a marvelous texture which was difficult to capture in the metro lighting.
