Circus! - Coffee and a Cigarette


Outside the Circus Café. Talleyrand wrote this about coffee:

Black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel, sweet as love.

I love the symmetry of their arms and the asymmetry of their legs. This is a terrific image. So full of information and yet so compact.

Only in Monte Carlo would people go to the circus dressed like this pair. He looks like he is a body guard.

Your quote today is brilliant. It might apply to the people as well as the coffee?

Oh yes, those little cups of expresso. I had one in Paris and that quote hits it perfectly. Whooooo. They claimed it was decaf, but I'm not sure that's possible-HA

LOVE this photo as well. You must have a great zoom Jilly. They aren't paying you the least mind! Good one.

Give "Les Girls" a scratch behind the ears for me.

Great portrait! I really like the b&w on this shot!
As everyone else in my country, I love expressos, the only way I drink coffee. I do it on a daily basis, but just one or two nowadays.

They are dressed like this for the cicus and,maybe,for the Casino,not far awway! So many things to do in Monte Carlo! So many different people to see there,isn't it Jilly?

I wonder what they are saying to each other? Only in MC would people dress up for the circus. Anywhere else, it would be jeans and T shirt. Designer of course in Monte Carlo!

This young lady is a very classy image. Not just the wonderful subjects,(so chic) but your interpretation of them. This is an image that makes you a photographer not a snapper.

I have a t-shirt from a Mazatlan coffee shop with a similar quote...in Spanish. Good candid shot in B&W.

Perhaps, the circus is one of the most intriguing parts of Monaco.
