Paris, France
Even nuns like to hunt for bargains and window shop.

  1. What a fabulous shot James. And about my portraits, read my comment, but I'd like to add that you really need to try it . I meet the most wonderful people taking street portraits. They are by far my fondest memories.

  2. Very clever! And I love the stark contrast of the whites and blacks. Whatever bargain can it be they seek or that holds them with such interest?

  3. One seems to have found what she want and is headed inside.
    Yes, one must wonder what they're looking for.
    Great shot, James!

  4. Terrific captures, James! You don't see many nuns in habits anymore - at least here in the states. I, too, love the contrast of black and white!

  9. One of those subjects that comes out well in monochrome; when I was in Rome years ago then of course there were nuns everywhere.

  10. Nice!
    Those are really old-school habits.

    There is nothing like a vow of poverty to alert a person to bargains.
