I took this photo on Montmatre in September. Their sadness haunted me since. The title is from Charles Aznavour's song La Bohème.

Deb is spot on with her take on this image. Translation: "Montmatre seems to be sad and the lilacs are dead"

I don't love the processing, but their expressions are extremely emotive. I feel sort of sad just looking at them.. 8

I just kept bumping this one. I spotted ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jagar's so I know this is not his but I also bet he loves it and maybe even wishes it was LOL I would probably have tried to do something with that sticker in the lower right - desaturate, maybe? But the expressions, the composition, the reflections, the framing are all perfect. 9 Voted earlier.

Such a sad feeling. They seem to be looking out the window but not seeing anything but their heavy thoughts. A Wonderful capture.

I'll have to look up the title, but before I do let me say I like this. There's a sadness, a resignation from those inside as they watch the exuberance in those outside, indicated by that single hand. Europe of the signs, yes?, and wonderful framing of the reflections.

et encore! la tristesse des choses passées que l'on n'a pas connu

(I don't care much for the Pudlo guide but, such is life)

Even though this is France, it's almost an urban take on Grant Wood's "American Gothic".

Interesting. I seem to remember he was looking directly at the camera in the b/w version. The color version with that particular processing (or is it the Parisian light?) works well too.
