In October of 2006, I took my first trip to Paris…my friend Peg & I spent 8 days exploring the city, mostly on bicycles. Rented a little flat we found on craigslist (i LOVE craigslist!) in the 3rd arrondissment (sp?) and enjoyed some wonderful weather along with the usual rain for that time of year. First thing we did was Le Tour Eifel; what fun! This photo was taken on a bike trip to the Monte Mart district, known for its sex shops, and also the scene of one of my all-time favorite movies; “Amelie.” I spied this couple enjoying the rare sunshine and warm temps as we were cycling along the boulevard; quickly changed lenses and got a few shots off without them noticing me. Love the visual humor; I like to think that Robert Doisneau would approve – and as serendipity would have it, there was a Doisneau retrospective exhibit that very week we were there…merveilleux!
