The silhoutte

I saw this woman from behind and thought the contrast of her black overcoat and white hair was so arresting.
And then I saw she was carrying a Vuitton bag and I had to take a picture. I walked behind her for about five minutes—I was just so inexplicably mesmerized.


  1. Sheesh, the LV is almost bigger than her! The juxtaposition of her bent black clad frame with the younger ram rod straight version ahead is like seeing the past & present at once. Paris has honed your eye.

  2. Merci, Anon! I hadn't even noticed the younger gent up ahead...

    I think I need to keep my eyes open for these beautiful old women more.

  3. So that is a guy! Wasn't sure. Do you think she was checking out his backside?

  4. Sublime picture and great photo moment, only in Paris!
