Happy birthday, Mister Sam, hug and kiss from Paris.
Let the good times roll — paie-toi du bon temps! (now, I do prefer the cajun anglicism “laissez les bons temps rouler!”)
And thanx for helped me to prepare a journey in California… I’m quite sure it will be for another time!
Paris, le Louvre, March 2013.

This is my generation, baby.” (The Who)
My favorite model, August 2012.
To my IG’s friends who pass from time to time see me here (BTW, see? this one isn’t raw, but hardly edited!) : thinking of you, & I’ll be back soon…
Begging in the subway.
I hesitated a lot to take this photo, then to post it. Moreover, it was rather badly perceived.
But it’s also a scene of the 2012’s Paris. It’s not a very frequent scene — he dragged himself on the ground. I don’t know if he feigned or if he was really handicaped. But I guess that we perceive the other travelers emotion.
Am I wrong or not? I do not know. I can be this beggar, tomorrow.
I testify for my city, and I cry with her as I also laugh & love with her at other times.
Just before this one, I took a lovers “typically Parisian” photo, if one of you wants to see it, just tell me, I’ll post it here too.
Paris, subway, June 8th, 2012.
(I guess he was a tourist, discovering he was in front of the Lido, a parisian cabaret.)
I know that most of you prefer the monochrome (not to write “ALL of you”), but… not me, you know it already!
So, if you know some street pix streams in colors (= with candids, not only street art nor only portrait nor only urban landscapes), could you please tell me where I can find them, on Tumblr? Please no “ghosts” nor “massively rebloggers” (okay, I’m hard to please!)
I already know: the skilled Brooklyn Theory (great portraits, street art, street photo), Lolitalens (mostly mobile photography, with street photo, portraits). Otherwise, I know “ghosts”, simple reflections of feeds coming from Flickr, from blogs, from EyeEm or from Instagram, for example SongForAWastedLife (street photo stream only, reflect of his Flickr, fed by a talented professional photographer, a lot of BnW these last days), and AliveInNYC (a lot of candids portraits, reflect of his Instagram feed only).
I can’t believe there’s only Newyorkers who live in colors in this world! :)
Paris, Champs-Elysées, May 2012.
