This woman is a dangerous outlaw!


I already explained the pigeons situation in Paris in this post and in the meantime I discovered that according to a law (the sanitary code, art. 120) it is forbidden to feed the pigeons in our Capital. And though, I suppose this moment is probably one of the main highlights in the day of this old lady. It is silly but this picture moves me!

  1. But ! What is Sarkozy doing about that ? In jail, the old lady !!!!

    More seriously, pigeons are a real problem in towns. But I can't forget this part of "Mary Poppins" where an old woman feed pigeons. So tender...

  2. Nothing silly about that, as far as am concerned...
    I think you did the right thing in showing us that picture.

  3. It is, indeed, very touching, and shows the loneliness of this old lady, whose only friends are probably those pigeons.

  4. I guess my 4 year old can keep the lady company. That's all he wanted to do in Paris last week.

  6. Un moment d'humanité dans la grande capitale... C'est en effet tres touchant.

    Another great shot, Eric.

  7. Au fait, pas pour critiquer, mais le titre de ce post, ça serait pas plus "This womAn" que "This womEn" ?

  8. Eric, every picture you show makes me want to visit Paris all the more. My heart goes out to this woman. I remember when it became illegal to feed the pigeons in Jackson Square in New Orleans. I missed the pigeons, but not the mess they created.

    Sometimes it seems that every freedom we exercize infringes on the freedom of someone else.
