Accordez-moi un Air d'Antan

This girl enchanted me. She had a really weird, indefinable sort of other-worldly charm. Her costume, her evocative melodies and her gentle swaying and far-away gaze was a potent combination.
I took my shots, didn't talk to her, humbly offered my coins and scurried off, but she's one of those people that stick in your mind and I can't help wondering what she's about. Whether she's a student or a professional musician or married or single or deep and meaningful or, well... weird.
I guess I'll never know if I don't go back to that place (Montmartre) and strike up a conversation. Except that often a picture has captured a moment in time which could be destroyed if you asked the subject to step out of the frame. I wonder if I'll ever see her again...
