Paris Scarf in le Metro

 I shoot shoes in the Metro but this trip I went for scarves/l'esharpes.

 Purple is IN in case you were wondering...

 The variety of scarf knots and folds seems endless...

 Animal prints will always be IN.

 No animal print scarf on this doggie. Pourquoi pas?

 Was pastry chef Delmontel influenced by scarves in the Metro when he designed this towering chou/cream puff?

 Much like this towering blue scarf - this woman has quite a long neck it would seem...

 Just a sliver of green scarf compliments the red bobble hat.

 Hair, scarf and sweater are totally color co-ordinated here on the train.

 You can get good tips how to tie your scarf by browsing the Paris vitrines

 These are at Marie Brunon on rue Vavin.
This example in Bonpoint might be a tough act to follow. You'd need assistance with this one for sure!
Bon Week-End!

  1. Carol, I just love the way you see things. A pastry inspired by a scarf? Mais oui!

    1. Perhaps it's the other way around?

  2. For one of the prizes at my holiday concert this year (my 10th anniversary concert!!), I'll be giving away a scarf I knitted that looks a lot like the one in the last photo. Except it's green. Irish wool.

    And it doesn't fly magically behind you...

  3. I'm sure if I tried this on the London Underground I'd be arrested or possibly given a slap! Are the French just very agreeable to having their scarves photographed? Great link scarves = pastry...

    1. The Canon S100 is very small and discrete - a Non-invasive camera and shooter.

  4. Wonderful captures, Carol! :-)

    Ever since I moved to Vienna, my scarf collection grows and grows. They are so agreeable, not fussy like buying a dress or other garments.

  6. I love every one of those scarves. I live in them in winter here. Love the animal print one and the pink one but hey purple is pretty good too!! :))

  7. Love all the scarves, just wish my neck was long enough to wrap a scarf round & round like the ones in the photos. I have a long purple one from a few yrs ago, I'll have to get it out again this winter & be like the Parisiennes.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  8. Great candid shooting, Carol. The camera must be very quiet...
    I notice that all of the subjects are women - did you loose that "scarf guy" finally :)

  9. Perhaps it's true that everything comes back in style if you wait long enough....I OWN that purple scarf! I'd been saving it to make a snowman, but after seeing your post, he will have to find his own scarf!

  10. I love your stealth photography! I'm starting to practice mine, only hoping to emulate your success. I love the way you can link absolutely everything back to pastries! Sensational work.

  13. I must have thousands of scarves--never met one I didn't like. You can always change a look with just the twist of a scarf.

  14. Oui-une dans tous les coleurs! et tres longues bien sur...........just watch out when cycling-we don't want any more Isadora Duncan mishaps!

  15. Carol I Love Arnaud Delmontel! Often stay in Pigalle on Rue due Navarin just so I can get my breakfast there and watch the stream of baguettes going out the door. Living in London you can go to Paris for a day. Especially useful when you want to deliver an Arnaud prize winning baguette to you hubby back home.....

  16. For all the scarves I have, I've never been able to throw one on like the French ladies do. Perhaps I do need help from Bonpoint on that last shot. That would certainly move heads :-))
    Apparently the animal print is IN at French collège since my daughter is going nuts over them.

  17. The lady with "the long neck" is wearing a "Snood" as we know them in the UK. They are knitted and joined , so they are a circle and then you twist them round your neck twice.. I have one and it is fab, if really cold you can bring the back bit up to cover your head :-)
