City Daily Photo Theme Day: Looking out

So the year is drawing to a close... For this month's Theme Day in the CDP community, here's the owner of the Greek deli looking out of Monsieur Bresnu's cheese shop in Montreuil neighbourhood. Now naturally, just when VDP clicked, he turned his head slightly and then it was too late, there was a van coming and he disappeared into the shop... To view more takes on the theme, click here. Oh and VDP is away for a couple of days and will catch up with your blogs asap! Have a great December!

Et voilà que déjà la fin de l'année approche... Pour ce thème de la communauté des blogueurs CDP, voici le propriétaire du traiteur grec qui observait la rue depuis la crèmerie de Monsieur Bresnu à Montreuil. Forcément, juste au moment où VDP a pris la photo, il a légèrement tourné la tête et ensuite c'était trop tard, il y avait une camionnette à l'approche et il a disparu dans le magasin. Pour voir d'autres interprétations du thème, cliquez ici. Ah et VDP est encore absente, elle vous rendra visite dès que possible ! Bon décembre !

Life is like that. Fleeting opportunities, often hard to grasp.

This is a good one. I tried to find someone doing something similar but no luck.

Well Monsieur WAS looking out .... and if I had been there, I would have been looking-in. It's a lovely little shop.

Good choice. It is curious that so many Greeks around the world have chosen to be in the deli and restaurant business.

Ha! I seem to have a LOT of just-missed shots. But in my opinion, yours turned out well. ;)

Feels like it's a pause in the day's occupation!.

Looking in, looking out - it's a matter of minute timing. Tough luck. The spirit is there though :)

Fantastic. I love the feelings it evokes.

Still a great photo of a peek outside the shop. My just-missed shots seem to take up most of my camera:)
