Quirky bird-man walking the Ile st Louis, in the rain, with a broken umbrella, holding the broken side over his head, getting wet. I had a little chuckle as I took this shot. Adoreable.

Gypsy bohemian purple cape man. I half expected him to turn into a vampire or bat and fly away. Or a magic flying carpet-rug.
I met this whacky chef at a teeny local creperie in Guy Moquet (near Montmartre) - the most peculiar character, for once I am stumped for words, there is no words to describe him. Pity a photograph can't show true character. Here he is making my nutella creperies. yummmmm
