L'Équipée 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 à 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. 😄

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.

"Street photography, a genre of photography that records everyday life in a public place. The very publicness of the setting enables the photographer to take candid pictures of strangers, often without their knowledge."


  1. More a Samuel Jackson's look than a Marlon Brando's one!

  2. Well you must have said the right thing James. Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend.

  3. Hi James and All. Google translated, "yes absolutely, you have to drink beer."
    I am back from my Sabatical and a bad, bad, 16 Day trans-Atlantic cruise. On the cruise Mrs. Jim tested positive with mild symptoms. She was "isolated" for the rest of the cruise and a day. Four days later I tested positive and was isolated for the rest of the cruise plus five days. Our British isolation was at an older Holiday Inn at Portsmouth, U.K. I think.we got it from unmasked folk in a ship elevator.

    1. Oh yes, in April I only posted on my Photo and Poem Blog a Poem a day for National Write a Poem Month.

  4. The wild that a pretty old movie? I think I've heard of it.

  5. C'est un peu la version light ou écologique de "l'équipée sauvage". Un peu comme le film de gangsters "Bugsy malone" tournée avec des enfants ! En tout cas, je suis très admiratif de ta capacité à filmer les gens de face et non en cachette. C'est une super photo joyeuse et conviviale

  6. Lucky for you that he doesn't think all beer-drinkers are wimps and he only drinks Cachaça

  7. même avec des lunettes noires il ne passe pas incognito
    bon weekend

  8. Guy must have taste because clothing, guy and bike fit seamless together. Nicely done again.
