In Paris, everybody wants to be an actor; nobody is content to be a spectatorJean Cocteau
I’m not totally with Cocteau on this, although I do understand why he said it. For me, there are few more pleasurable ways to pass the time in Paris than sitting on the terrace of a pavement café watching the world pass by. The city is a continuous performance, with mini dramas being played out on every street corner. I am very content to be a spectator, with of course my camera in hand.
So order your beverage of choice: coffee, beer, wine or anise perhaps. Then sit back and enjoy the show!
This is a follow up to last year’s post on the same theme, with shots here all taken on my most recent visit to the city
