Piano Al Fresco

I FOUND MYSELF IN THE  9th arrondissement in the Galeries Lafayette Homme. ‘Homme’ being the part of that majestic temple to shopping devoted to menswear.

I entered full of ideas and good intentions but the plethora of big brand names and extravagant prices completely overwhelmed me so I left empty-handed.

Leaving the Galeries Lafayette I found a young man sitting on a stool playing a piano in the middle of the pavement. Living in Paris one gets used to seeing the quirky and accepting it as being quite normal but this spectacle did grab my attention.

Quirky the sight may have been but, gallantly competing with the very harsh traffic noise, the young man gave a bravura performance.
