« French people » defined

Vendredi, mars 19th, 2010

I received an email today from a person surfing the net to find pictures of « French people ». After a while, it got me thinking about what defines pictures of « French people ». Are typical items such as a beret and a baguette needed to identify a Frenchman or could a simple portrait be enough ?

I don’t know, yet I am 99.9% sure that the picture below portrays a Frenchman. (obviously, the Arch of Triumph helps … but still).    (click on picture to enlarge)
