I’ve just returned from 10 days in Paris, London and the surprisingly wonderful Brighton.

I plan to display some of my photos as I fixed and work with them. Today, it’s two gentlemen at the cafe I stopped at for a Cafe Creme every morning in Montparnasse. This is the essence of what Paris means to me. Lazy mornings sipping great coffee. I will never again make the mistake of imagining for one minute that Starbucks has anything at all to do with good coffee!

The photo is pretty much unedited. It has been converted to black and white, straightened and cropped but that’s about it.
