A Martini Lunch

A Martini Lunch

Café de la Presse, a bit touristy as it’s at the entrance of Chinatown on Grant Street but it’s ok with me. Whenever Betty and I walk in there we are transported to Paris. This man usually sits at the bar with a martini in hand. I haven’t had the courage to talk to him yet but one day I will. He’s a regular and is always dressed to the T. I love that. He fits right in as he’s French and usually reads the newspapers from his homeland.

I love this city.

Leica M6 and Arista Pro 50.

  7. Thanks all….I’ve also taken a photo of this gentleman at a anti-war protest. He accused me of being a part of the “mainstream media”. Ha!
