CDP Theme Day - scene from a coffee shop


The first day of every month is theme day for the worldwide blogging community City Daily Photo.  Today's them is "scene from a coffee shop" and you may see how the others interpreted the theme here.

My shot of a popular café on Place Debré exemplifies the classic French café as a place to meet friends, read the paper, hang out, and have a great cup of coffee.

  1. A very nice café scene, Stuart !
    Did you take this photo in the 50's ? (just kidding). The b&w choice is very appropriate.

    1. No, but the place has probably not changed a lot since then.

    1. Hey, we're ready for you. As they say in France, "come on down!"... or something like that.

  3. Black and white certainly gives this one a timeless feel.

  7. I love the choice of black & white. It really emphasises the timelessness of these typical old cafés.
