Balboa Park Parisian Photos

A few years back I vacationed in Paris. What a treat. Anyone that has been there, you know it is just as mesmerizing as photos we see and watch on television. I recently watched the movie, "Midnight in Paris" with Owen Wilson, which is set in Paris. Great movie, by the way... anyways, that is what got me browsing for images on the web that would enchant me as if I were there. I came across a book called "My French Life" by Vicki Archer. I have not yet seen the book, but it is about the author and her family who move to France and buy a 17 century farmhouse and property to restore. She shares lots of photos and their experience of their life there.  What intrigued me was this cliche cover in black and white:

So what, you say. The funny thing was, I was at Balboa Park just after it finished raining, taking photographs, and the a lady from the book cover walked right by me.  See, here she is:

My daughter posing as well:

Ok, it really wasn't the same lady from the book, but she made a neat photo!

Merci for looking!!!!
