Weekly Photo Challenge: Pedestrian

Latin Quarter, Paris

Location: Paris, France
 
Our tour guide, who hailed from the South of France, told us that Paris is considered one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful city in the world.

I couldn’t agree more. It has much to offer to anyone, but to fully experience it, you must take it slow like sipping a good wine. In other words, you must proceed with the intention that you’d be coming back.

What a better way to do that than to sit outside a cafe and watch people as the locals do. You can see them, in different shapes and colors, as they come and go about their business, immersed in a world of their own making. What’s interesting, though, is that before you can pass judgment on them, they’re gone and a new group of folks appear.

The above picture was taken while having lunch at the Latin Quarter which I’d consider the Berkeley of Paris. It’s dominated by university students and intellectuals with lots of places to eat and to hang out. Situated on the left side of the Seine River, it’s a good spot to indulge in people watching.

    Thank you for the pingback! Looks like a great spot you found. As a teen I got to visit Paris with a group, but we didn’t hang out…we walked and walked the cathedrals and museums…nearly fifty years ago! Haven’t been back. I love seeing the cobblestones in your photo.

        Maybe so! It would be fun to hang out with a sketchbook.
