Photographer's Note

A very common scene during the summer months along the banks of the Seine, and this one was even more active and crowded because of a small wine and cheese event that was taking place in this particular area.

I had already snapped plenty of pictures of the Notre Dame itself, so I thought I’d try using it as a backdrop instead for this shot. With hundreds of people and spots to choose from, the guy in the immediate foreground is the one that caught my eye for his Roman-esque type statue of a pose. Not only that, but I figured I could also catch him stuffing that sandwich into his piehole…and what do you know, I did! :)

So there you have it, one of the simple pleasures of Paris, enjoying a little riverside snack …and having a view like this.

Thanks for stopping in for a look.
