Reading through lunchtime

I do often that, she told me after realising she was taken.

I do too like to read in a café, I answered.

And we smiled at each other : two similar people.


Paris centre, 5e we went there with my Documentary class to meet after our walk around the Quartier Latin.


Algo: "she told me ok and then went back reading"


This photo is used as logo in the People Reading flickr group, the first group I formed in Flickr. Almost 6500 members now. And many interesting and very divers photos!

    Is there just the beginning of a smile of awareness that she is being photographed? That was an amazingly productive day in Paris. More to come? Nice light here.
  • Judy Baxter 10y

    Very nice portrait.
  • Cynthia 10y

    She looks so pretty and interesting. It's funny I just did a reading-girl picture, too! Reading
  • pascale nguyen-the 10y

    c'est effectivement un ravissant portrait, avec le "sourire intérieur".
    Il évoque aussi certains portraits de madones (je ne sais pas si cette jeune fille apprécierait la comparaison).
  • Julie Kertesz 10y

    Thank for the beautifull photo as comment. And yes, it was a day with 200 photos : until I did not have any more space in either of my memory cards.

    More photos to come.

    très douce son expression, de lectrice, concentrée, attentive... et en même temps perméable à son environnement... elle est charmante :-)
