The Queen of Paris

Samedi, février 28th, 2009

I usually do not take shots of homeless people as I always feel this is taking advantage of their weakness. Yet today at the end of Les Champs Elysées, I saw that woman looking at her face in a mirror with such a proud smile that I felt she was the Queen of Paris enjoying the garden just in front of President Sarkozy’s palace.
