'The Guitarists Brunch', A cropped version of 'Le Creperie', as I was not happy with the original image. This picture was taken in Montmartre near the square, Sadly in this shot i wasn't able to get the consent of a crepe maker to pose in the shot. However I still like this images motion and old fashioned style, the guitarist was an added bonus to the situation.
*Notice- the bird on the crepe hot plate, this bird persistantly flew into the window and was feasting on the uncooked batter or any scraps it could find which were cut off as the crepes were being cooked. The hot plate I think was maybe a lttle too hot for this Sparrows feet, as you can see from its attempts for a rapid exit.
***Apologies for the wrong country and state I had a laspe in concentration and put UK as the country, force of habit I guess.

Very nice street shot, John, full of animation. Nice capture. I've heard of Paris, France and Paris, Texas but not Paris, Isle of Wight before :-)

I like street views and this one of a well known area, pleasant to see this guitaar player stepping inside to earn his living in this Creperie or to eat a pancake.
Pitty the bird is not that visable, it would had replaced very well the crepe maker.

Guitarist is certainly an anchor to this shot...
A bit humorous too, the sparrow on fast exit as soon as the guitarist is in!...
Nice framing & timing.
