Le French Quarter Cafe

Man in French Cafe

A couple of days ago I walked past the Healy Building in downtown Atlanta and noticed a slew of people just inside the entryway. A gallery in the building, which had been empty a few days prior, was packed with equipment. The commotion is rare given that there are only two first-floor tenants, the Vintage Hair Gallery and Le French Quarter Cafe. I had not been allowed to photograph within the building a few days prior so I decided to wander inside in the hopes that I would blend among the crowd. As I approached the entry to the Healy Building I glanced to my right into Le French Quarter Cafe and noticed the scene as shown above. For a moment I felt as if I had been transported to Paris. I took several shots and proceeded to wander into the Healy Building. As it turned out, the Oprah Winfrey-produced movie “Selma” was being filmed in the Vintage Hair Gallery (see last post). “Selma” is a biopic about Martin Luther King Jr. and is anticipated to be released next year.

    • Thanks Lisa. As much as I try to stay out of the pictures I did not manage it this time. I had noticed my reflection in the window when I was shooting but it wasn’t until I was editing that I noticed my reflection in the mirror.

    Great to be able to see you in the reflections of the window and the mirror. Love this shot.

    I guess that is you reflected in the mirror on the wall – looks like someone shooting with one hand!  Certainly a very french flavor! M

    • I actually had both my hands on the camera. I can’t quite manage shooting with one hand.
