heheheh very funny! The expression of the waiter is great!

Patrick said...

Merci Charles,c'est gentil.
About the waiter,I keep seeing Rudy Giuliani when I look at him,something must have told me to put him there.Considering the subject of the painting it seem logical after all.

Mick said...

legendary pictures and your take on them is fully spot on. In them days they always had these great snaps of the top swankers lording it up in St Morritz or whatever... high society and villains 'avin a mingle. Nowadays the market seems to be saturated with knickerless nobodies taking ten minutes to step out of a car... fat bellys viewed through two mile zoom lenses... where did the class go? ... then again, maybe things just look better in black and white

Patrick said...

Mick what I love in those photos is that they have a story.

Encore une réalisation exceptionnelle. J'aime aussi, comme souvent chez toi, l'originalité du choix, cette volonté de "jamais vu", c'est magnifique !
