Two years ago- Passage Jouffroy
Exactly two years and a day ago, on July 20 I was in Paris visiting passages and galleries, before I made a list with the group that begins at the Galleries Vivienne and ends at Montmartre Boulevard
I note down not address at all, only the names and trust people to help me, it was a good idea, I began with the one I knew Vivienne, near the Palais Royal, going out, show my list to a porter or police
What an idea he said, call another person and both explained how to arrive at the first two galleries or passages and add another one that was just a few meters away
When I finished (a hot Summer day) I enter a small shop and asked for the next ones at the only person inside, she was a kind woman that recommended me to have some lunch at a restaurant in the corner, rest and return, she offered to go with me walking, because I wanted to take a taxi and she said it was near and also added more galleries at my list
So at the early evening I arrived at Jouffroy, a place plenty of interesting objects as old canes, books,postcards,stamps,paper specialists, a true paradise for a hot day
What I like about these places was to see not tourist and tours but people watching, searching, interested in the special items on sale like this relaxed man quite adsorbed in an art book from the very good Paul Vulin bookshop

Intéressante perspective du mobilier de la librairie
Une bonne profondeur d'image
La personne est concentrée sur sa lecture et ne pose pas pour toi et ça c'est très bien

The man is really focused on reading.. İ think he explores something from books booklets or journals.. but i like reading like that man..;) its a good photo thanks:)

Few shops interest me as much as bookstores. Here the reader emulating a stork balancing on one leg would certainly attract my attention. Good eye, and good technical shot.

Hola Maria, it seems we are visiting this library too. I would be also interested in the book this guy is looking. Something from archeology maybe? Funny relaxed pose. Nice candid shot.

Great catch of a man posing while reading, nice taken the moment. Red basket stand-out contrast, while there is good clarity over the books shelves.
Buenas dias from Israel,

Hola Maria querida,
a very agreeable presentation of this elegant bookshop through the gentleman's relaxed pose and smart integration in the setting. I like how our glance is first attracted by his expression, moves on to the open book he is observing and then wanders around. You chose a very good perspective for this quick and discreet capture, the setting is thorough and clear, the colours are natural and the atmosphere cozy and delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

This is in every way a very good photo. The books make an interesting theme and are nice to watch, the man is a perfect leading actor and his relaxed posture makes him more interesting, the light is good and the diagonal composition is very attractive. This may be indoors but the photo has all the qualities of an excellent street-shot. Very well done,

You were lucky to take a photo inside a bookstore. Barnes & Noble here will not allow it. I find the gentleman's posture interesting. Good composition, very well done.

Recuerdo muy bien esta galeria, una de las varias en Paris, con mucho encanto, tu imagen resulta muy viva y natural, con esta mujer en una postura peculiar, mientras hojea los libros
Muy bonito colorido, que da mucha vida a la imagen.
Una magnífica gestión de la luminosidad, la nitidez también esta perfecta, para disfrutar de los detalles.
Bien visto y realizado.
Disfruta de un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Hola mon amie Maria
Ici il fait super chaud, l'on atteint les 38°.....
J'aime ta note, comme l'image, la position cool de la personne intéresser par un bouquin d'art, belle scène de vie bien mise en image
Belle journée a toi

The red shopping bag sets up a superb warm cold color contrast against the blue jeans. Good interior shot with excellent sharpness & diffused light. Colour balance is spot on as evidenced by the perfect grey tiles. Tfs!
