Zen day...

Today is Le lundi de Pentecôte, a Christian feast commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles - among others. And for the 4th time within the last 40 days, French people will enjoy an extra holiday (in May, France is pratically closed!). I took this photo near the Polish church in the 1st arrondissement and I love the way this guy is enjoying a little rest in the sun... Perfect for a quiet day like today.


  1. Excellent mood for the shot.

    Today here we had Pentecost Sunday- I didn't know it spilled over into Monday. I was wandering about churches here for what's called Doors Open, and a couple of them were decorated for the occasion.

  2. This photo definitely inspires peace! I'm feeling an inner quiet indeed!

  3. Perfect! I imagine he's listening to Tibetan monks chanting "Om" over and over (I keep it on my iPod for those especially stressful times). :~}
