Tonight after work, relaxing at one of my favourite cafés, "La Belle Hortense" (the Beautiful Hortense, never met her ... ;) also located in Le Marais in the centre of the city.
At Hortense's, you can find good wine and litterature ...
Tonight, that was all I needed, wine, books and photography ... what else ?

About the book, "The New Life" by Orhan Pamuk, Turkish writer who was recently awarded Nobel Prize.

About the wine, Côtes-du-Rhône.

About the camera, Canon Ixus 500.

About the photographer, me ...

Maybe a cuban cigar to complete the mood (purely on a smoker to non smoker preference though)

For me? Perfect!!:)
Beautifull photo!!

I love to see each new cafe scene that you create! This one is certainly one of my favs, it is so full of atmosphere, the angle and the POV work very well together and the exposure and colour tone create the mood.

Thanks, you allow the mind to be in the cafe for a few moments and enjoy!



Ben pour moi une petite musique de fond … et un peu plus dans le verre …
Bon cliché qui fait bien ressentir l’ambiance du café …

He is a brilliant writer. I hope you have enjoyed "My Name is Red." One of my favorite books, and perfect for someone like you, with such an artistic sensibility. (Nice composition in the photo, too. I can't decide whether I like the glare of the overhead lights on the the surfaces or not. While they interfere with some of the clarity, they help create the ambience. So I suppose they are good.) Salut et bonne lecture! -Hugh

Great job!!kisanlov

Hey, I'm almost dazzled by the good taste you have! Truly, what else more than just a book, drink and camera? Not much else, really.

Loving this pic,

Hi Sylvie,
good point of view! You don't need anything else, just quiet. Lovely photo. TFS

All the best,

Time to relax indeed. All that's missing is a fireplace! Lovely composition and a very inviting mood.

Hi Sylvie,
Apparently we have one more thing (except from photography) in common; literature! I can't go to a cafe without or taking a newspaper or (preferable) a good book. Your captured here with great lighting the nice subjects wine and book, very well. Excellent posting my dear Sylvie! TFS.

:) Later...

As promised...

A propos de l'auteur, nous avons le même prénom,
A propos du photographe, nous avons le même hobby,
Et a propos du café, il est dans un quartier que j'aime.

NB : Il est bien ce livre ?

allons dans l'ordre princesse;
les Côtes du rhône je les connais, j'y vi pas très loin (le futur)
Turquie: je connais des militaires et j'espère que les turques ne sont pas tous pareil car en février j'y vais faire un petit séjour. et quand je vois ta photo j'ai l'eau à la bouche et l'esprit qui s'ébroue un peu.
Très bien majesté, c'est impec.

Bonjour, Sylvie!
Beautiful Your own life documentary!
And I like reflection of cafe atmosphere on the surface of table..
Must have been a nice, relaxing evening!

Hard text reading habit is on the decline in the contemporary youth - the reason could be the electronic publications.

This picture in view is an innovative idea which is invoking the pleasure of relaxation i.e. book reading and drinking red wine. The red wine works as a catalyst, because it is sleepers friendly.

Well done Madame Sylvie. Many thanks for sharing a thoughtful image.

Que tel le Côtes-du-Rhône ? Et le livre?
Intéressante image du quotidien parisien.
Hortense semble un nom portugais.

About the shot: sylfondacci, without a shadow of a doubt!
yet some other hobbies we share, Sylvie: wine and reading ;o).
Both nicely combined in this shot.

Superbe ambiance on se sent confortable avec cette palettes de couleur chaudes et ces reflets très purs. Très belle compo, belle ambiance!

Great shot and very creative. Thanks for sharing.

Ah this image displays such a romanticized lifestyle, it sets me in awe. Look at the floor and the carefully placed tiny tiles, and the even smaller white tiles... things like that catch my attention... I go to places just to experience little details such as that. Although I have never heard of this book, or drink wine, I'd love to have experienced this moment- it must have been quite the evening! I don't think this image needs a cigar, who wants to spoil a lovely evening with toxins? I think you have done an immaculate job on this image, many thanks for this post! :)


Hi Sylvie, here I am again at the bottom of your admirerer's list. Hope I am not the last!
Anyway, great capture, nice reflections, lighting. This could an advertising shot for wine or whatever. Cotes-du-Rhone? You have good taste. Enjoy the good life, Janos

Salut Sylvie,
Belle ambiance et tres belle composition.
