    This image has such a timeless quality to it. It could be today or 40 years ago.

    This photograph is timeless, so many things are working so perfectly here to make it so. The location, the black and white film, the clothing that the gentleman is wearing…beautiful capture.

      True. I totally adore this photo.

      It also reminds me of a black-and-white portrait of my grandfather.

    This says “Paris” way more than the fashionistas strutting the streets in their designer clothing.

    What I love about this photo is that it is timeless! It might have been taken yesterday, or be a vintage photo!

    shopping bags, particularly plastic bags, ruin more shots
    Timeless but for the bag

    • Nini piccola

      July 26, 2013 at 11:07 am

      The plastic bag makes the photo more authentic as in not “styled”.

    Classic style, monsieur…but the pimpin’ shoes give you away!

    yes, but for the bar code on the bag, and the plastic trash strewn about, it could be timeless. beautiful shot. oh, and is that a no-smoking sign inside the cafe? also a modern invention, i presume.

    Far more fashionable than the photo I took at the same spot 14 years ago. (see link above or below, not sure where it’ll show up)

    Especially the tired and apparently frustrated gentleman in the oversized brown jacket.

    Older people in France seem to have a dignity that is missing in the U.S. Perhaps people value their opinions?
