Gallery: on the streets of Paris again

In Paris, everybody wants to be an actor; nobody is content to be a spectator

Jean 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


Do share your thoughts, I'd love to hear from you!
