Photographer's Note

A common scene throughout Paris and many parts of the world…and that’s a big part of the reason why I took this shot. Certainly nothing of huge impact, but it’s just one of those every day moments that caught my eye as I was sitting nearby, taking a break from another long day of walking.

The secondary reason for snapping this shot was that it made me think of a funny movie scene from Austin Powers: Goldmember – “Would you like a smoke and a pancake…you know, a flapjack and a cigarette? Hmm, alright…cigar and a waffle? No?...pipe and a crepe?....bong and a blintz?”

This phrase (smoke and a pancake) was intended to highlight two popular stereotypes of Holland: marijuana and sweet confections. Certainly not meant to offend anyone, just a simple play on a familiar tune.

Makes me laugh every time, what can I say… it’s just my ridiculous kind of humor! :)

Thanks for stopping by.
