The Earl of Menilmontant

This man introduced himself as the Earl of Menilmontant. Told us many great stories of his prime years. Even sang us a song. Earl in the heart, he was.  (click on picture to enlarge)

    Only a colorful cavalier like Earl can take champagne like him.

    Sans vouloir faire ni mon pédant ni mon casse-burettes, je pense que Monsieur le Comte, au vu de son verre, sirote plutôt un petit blanc d’Alsace que du Champagne. Tout cela est à l’est de Paris, j’en conviens, mais le nectar n’à pas la même saveur.
    Tout ça pour dire… que de belles photos ici !
    Longue vie au Comte, longue vie à Yanidel !

    Nice shot! He looks like a man full of character. What aperture did you use, by the way?
