I appreciate the fun, but I must tell you that for those who have gone through the war-time period food was scarce, thus your subjects aren't really representative. Now, does it look French and Parisian, I'll leave it to my British confrères. Regards,

Quote 'you can even see the Frenchman's Onions', now thats just a little too up close and personal!!Wink Smile

I love the 40s events, and no they don't look any more French than an Englishman looks English in a bowler hat carrying a rolled up brolly and a briefcase, but it's just harmless fun! And there really isn't (and never could be) too much of that in the World.

I think the female costume owes a little to British TV sitcoms - and 'Allo, 'Allo never sat very comfortably with me, to be honest. Hard to be funny about a World War.

For me, the issues are that the colours are rather bright, and I'm unconvinced by the processing... I also wonder if anyone managed flowers on the pavements during the War.

But... You can only shoot what's there, and it would be hard to resist the colour and the costume. I know I'd have taken a few shots.
