Thanks Luca The guy is a little 'blown out' as I was just passing, stopped for two seconds, no more and no second shot as he changed his position. This is absolutely candid and with film there would have been no 'blowout' around his head. But with white hair, it's barely noticeable and retouchable, I think, if necessary. In any case, it was worth posting. Let me know any further thoughts. John (Crosley)

It struck me at a first glance John, I realize that the first impression is always the most important. Then I start looking, finding the details that strike me. Perfect alignment I would say! The sun on the shopkeeper adds a surreal flavour to the picture, making the contrasts a bit harsh. The colours are wonderful, perfectly reflecting the style and the age (both old) of the scene represented. More later on. Best, Luca

Erratum That should be Parisien shopkeeper (Paris is a masculine proper noun and the 'ien' ending is the masculine) as opposed to the feminine ('ian') ending. John (Crosley)

Parisian Shopkeeper Shops in some parts of the world are dingy and sordid, but not so this shop (and shopkeeper) in Paris, which is the epitome of elegance in neighborhood shopping.
