A Quick Coffee

Standing at the counter in a Parisian cafe is cheaper and you get to talk to complete strangers.....besides, I was with my wife's uncle who wouldn't dream of ordering an espresso any other way.

Cool image...before the 2nd of January...no more cigarettes in the cafes...breathe easy...love the composition...candids like this are some of my favorites...when I take 'em up close and personal it's almost like stealing someone's soul...just kidding...
