Une terrasse à Philadelphie (Weekend Street/Reflections # 38)


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

An interesting fellow having lunch alone in The French Quarter.

Pourquoi devrions-nous toujours déjeuner avec quelqu'un ?

Have a great weekend!

Now you can link reflections and/or street photography. 

Please no posed pictures, portraits, animals, etc. unless of course there is a reflection.

Yes, he is an interesting looking fellow in a Panama hat. This is the second week you have featured a Panama hat. Interesting. The French Quarter in what city? NYC? All the signs are in English, so it isn't Paris, but the cafe looks French. To answer your question, we enjoy having lunch with someone because humans are at heart a social animal.

Weirdly the link up isn't letting me add a thumbnail from the post. Not sure what's going on there. Anyway that guy has a similar hat to the guy last week and I wondered if it was the same man at first. The textures in the scenery around him make the photo. Et je suis heureuse prends le dejuener toute seule.

Hi James. Thanks for your question about the Degas Little Dancer Age Fourteen. Degas exhibited this sculpture, his only sculpture exhibited in his life, in 1881. He made it of wax and real clothing. It created a sensation. The statue in my photo is one of two plaster casts made from the wax original. And more than twenty cast bronze examples have been made, so it is likely you have seen one in a museum. Thank you for your positive comment.

My first thought was it looks European, so this being French Quarter makes sense.
