American Graffiti Diner (Weekend Street/Reflections # 70)


 Bologna, Italy

Looking trough the window I saw a big Italian smile in a kitschy American-style diner. She seemed pleased to see me. I didn't go inside but I've been to a few similar places in Europe. Some of the best hamburgers I've had were in France.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

McGlinchey's Bar (Weekend/Street Reflections # 69)

 

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A woman standing at the entrance of a dive bar in 2015. After I took her picture, she said, "I knew you wanted to take my picture", and I said, "How could I resist?" I never figured out why she was there several hours before the bar opened or why the door said TOPS BAR but the sign above said McGlinchey's Bar.

Have a great weekend!

L'ร‰quipรฉe Sauvage (Weekend Street/Reflections # 67)

 

Lyon, France

When I saw this guy hanging out with some friends it reminded me of a French, bicycle version of the movie The Wild One. He said something and pointed at a nearby Brazilian restaurant. I didn't understand what he said but I replied "oui tout ร  fait, il faut boire de la biere." Then he laughed and shook my hand. It was the first thing that came to mind and I guess it was the right thing to say. ๐Ÿ˜„

Le Lutetia (Weekend Street/Reflections # 65)

 

Paris, France

I was on Rue de Picardie about to cross Rue de Bretagne in the 3rd Arrondissement when I noticed the woman in the window smoking a cigarette. From a distance, she reminded me of Miss Marple but not so much when I got closer. There aren't many things I enjoy more than wandering around with my camera at night in European cities.

Footsteps below my window (Weekend Street/Reflections #63)


 Venice, Italy

I took a few pictures from the bedroom window while in Venice in 2014. I could hear footsteps, but I couldn't see anyone. Then suddenly a woman wearing a cloche hat appeared, and I took the shot before she disappeared into the night.

Take the shot! (Weekend Street/Reflections # 57)

 

Newtown, Pennsylvania

This is from four or five years ago when I was living in Pennsylvania. I noticed the woman having trouble getting the family to smile so I stood behind her and took their picture which made them laugh. Unfortunately for her, she turned to look at me instead of taking the shot. I tried to help. ๐Ÿ˜€

Gente di Trastevere/People of Trastevere (Weekend Street/Reflections # 56)


 Rome, Italy

When I saw these people sitting in a bar in the Trastevere neighborhood in Rome one evening in 2016, it reminded me of a rare old street photo book from the early 1960s called "Gente di Trastevere by Carlo Bavagnoli."

                                           

                                           Here's some pictures from the book, what do you think?

Kafkaesque (Weekend Street/Reflections # 51)
