Pause-Café (Weekend Reflections # 192)

Paris, France 

What can you do if your morning isn't going so well? You may have different ideas, but for me, everything seems better after the first cup of coffee.

Bon week-end!

Plutôt un chocolat pour moi, et pas de cigarette..C'est vrai qu'il a l'air "grumpy" ce monsieur, peut-être qu'il n'aime pas être photographié?.. :o)

TexWisGirl said...

oh, he needs a pick-me-up! such a scowl! :)

Fun60 said...

You always post such interesting reflections.

wonderful shot

Alexa said...

Comme dit Malyss—but clearly the caffeine high hasn't kicked in yet! Bravo to you for not letting that scowl deter you, James.

I'm not so sure this guy's coffee is doing the trick!!! Great shot! Was he annoyed that you were taking his pic???

Adrienne said...

The everyman. At first glance I thought - I know him! Then, no...just an oh so typical sight. Brilliant capture!

'Tsuki said...

Brrrr ! He looks like a killer in action... Pour him some coffe, James, please : we need a smile on that sunny face.

:D

Ah, Pause Café, I know it well. I may even have a reflection from there, but I know that I got a shot of some killer shoes - hah!

Your portrait shows all the character and perhaps a bit of suspicion in the man's face. I think that I would like it it b/w also.

Thanks for the reminder, James. I always think of you on Friday postings but have been so preoccupied that I have been reluctant to enter without a commitment to participate in the discussion. I will today and over the weekend and will be better about a post here in the future.

Bises,
Genie

You escaped... :-)

Gemma Wiseman said...

A rather stern face beautifully captured in reality and reflection!

Norma Ruttan said...

I too wonder if it was being photographed that made him look so grumpy. I have not photographed people unless it was in a crowd or my family because I was not sure about legally being able to publish people's images unless I had permission. Is that something about which I should be concerned or not?
oh, yes, I ALWAYS am amazed at your relection choices.

Wo, double trouble!

Sophie A said...

Double realities exist in great balance.
I really like this shot.

Another one of your great portrait reflections. Like them James.

Marie said...

Super photo. Moi il me plait bien ce monsieur. On dirait un détective concentré sur le détail qui tue.

A Quiet Corner said...

It simply amazes me how you get these shots!...:)JP

Stickup Artist said...

You are brave! That look would have sent me running...

I LOVE this shot James. You nailed a great expression and the espresso in his hand. Parfait my friend.

Everything seems better after that first morning coffee, but I think he may need another :)
