THE FACE IN THE MIRROR

 

…good morning…

 

 

Paris is always such a wonderful enigma. A mystery of sights, smells and sounds, the flowing river of humanity passing without end as I wander the streets. Hidden alleyways, ancient storefronts, the cafés and the restaurants, the bars and bistros, always filled with people all eating and drinking, engaged in conversation, all acting out their passion plays along the rues and boulevards. It is a kaleidoscope of impressions, feelings and emotions that swirl around you no matter where you walk. Being in Paris is to have immersed oneself in all the rich complexity of the human experience, with that special haughty touch that only French culture can infuse. It’s Sunday, a week and a day on here now, time for a break. This self-portrait, a one shot from the hip in a shop window moment, was taken in the Marais district yesterday as I meandered through, on my way into the labyrinth of side streets of the 3rd arrondissement. The journey continues…
