Pouvez-Vous M'entendre Maintenant? (Weekend Reflections # 209)

Paris, France                                                         

"Can you hear me now?"
To be honest I don't know what he was saying, but since a bus and truck just passed by, my guess is as good as any.

Well, I hope everyone had good week. Now let's have some fun with reflections! :-)

I WANT TO GO VISIT!!! This is such a quintessential shot - a day in the life...in a beautiful place. Although - not so many cell phones when we lived there...that would be different! I love how the reflection turns an already magnificent building into a doubly magnificent one! Enjoy your weekend!

I love this shot, James, and what great reflections for the day -- as always!! Sorry for the weird appearance to my post today???? Not sure what the problem is now, always something it seems! Have a great weekend!

That's pretty awesome! It looks like you're just seeing both sides of a concrete pillar.

Lew said...

Great capture! Everyone has to be talking these days - why not just enjoy the scenery of Paris?

Cool pic James ! I like also the words you give to this man...

I'm not to keen on people using their phones on the street they are often too loud, and I feel like they need to show everyone that they have a phone, if you see what I mean... ^^

Carletta said...

I can only really tell that it is a reflection because the words are backwards on the right. Totally amazing shot!

Too funny, James, and right outside the Hotel du Louvre. The reflection is perfect.

Nice shot, James—of the beautiful city and the oblivious Frenchman x 2! He seems to be suffering from the syndrome I call PIHHUA (Phone in Hand, Head Up _ _ _), which has reached epidemic proportions here!

Pat Tillett said...

Great photo James!

Victoria said...

encore une prise de vue intéressante, que je devrai tester un de ces jours. Comme disait une chanson, on ne sait pas où vont ces hommes quand ils s'en vont... ni à qui ils parlent !
le mystère restera entier !
un bon week end à tous !

great title for such a sad activity...too busy talking while missing such a magnificent building and its environs!

namaki said...

Ah ! ah ! ah ! This is excellent ! I can almost hear him shouting in his cell phone as if alone in the city ! ;-)

Jack said...

Nice, James. This is like some I did in Venice, where I parked myself beside a reflective store window and waited to see if someone interesting would walk past.

Louis la Vache said...

Outstanding, James!
«Louis» knows "zackly" where that hôtel is, too!

Viera said...

This shot is fantastic...I love the doubly reflection...That's really brilliant...

Daniela Augustka Blah said...

I think, that he with his girlfriend announced that the date will come later :-)

Nice photo!

orvokki said...

I love this image, there is a good humour, too, in reflection.
Have a nice weekend

Halcyon said...

Nice one! It's looking a little gray in Paris.

Mama Zen said...

Fantastic shot!

Small City Scenes said...

Great reflection--no blur, no way of telling which is which. Exceptional! MB

Valerie said...

Magnifique, James! Such beautiful architecture and another brilliant, creative reflection.

Mandy Southgate said...

What a great capture! I must try look out for more reflections and take part one day!
