At the Newsagents

Saturday evening I felt like getting myself a couple of glossy magazines... There are newsagents booths like this one scattered all over Versailles, I'll have to remember to show you how they look from the outside, because they are quite pretty.
----------------------
Samedi soir en rentrant chez moi, j'ai eu une subite et furieuse envie de m'acheter un ou deux magazines...

tu as de la chance d'avoir encore un kiosque, a Evry tous (enfin le seul du centre) les marchands de journaux ferment a midi ;o(. et c'etait quoi comme journaux ? (je sais, je suis curieux ;o) ) ).

Oh yes, sometimes we need glossies. But I love more and more to exercise restraint.
You captured countenance of the newsvendor (large photo)is marvelous!

C'est une photo que je n'ai jamais faite mais je l'ai dans un coin de la tête.
Je me demande toujours où ils vont aux toilettes, et oui, je suis pragmatique.

Près de Versailles, serait ce Montreuil ? Ma fille a habité 2 ans Montreuil pendant ses études à Versailles...

I have to agree with Juergen, the color and detail is amazing when you see the large version of this photo.

Le visage de l'homme est très interessant. Et oui, je voudrais voir l'extérieur!

Ces kiosques sont de moins en moins nombreux, c'est dommage...J'aime beaucoup cette idée de photo et la photo aussi!

This is a great shot - I love the look on the man's face.

we all love news stands. In America, newspapers are dwindling and there are not many news stands left. I do not know what will happen. Although people do seem to read and listen to the news more and more on the radio, I-phones, and internet. I hope we continue to see news stands. I am glad you are enjoying my photo series on Arabian horses and that you knew the region of the native Arabic costume being displayed on the horse and person today.

A slash of colors! I enjoy these newstands. We saw many of them in Paris, there always seemed to be much activity around the stands.

Newsstands are always fun to browse. Sometimes it's hard to choose which one to take home, though.
