Waiting For Nadia

The fountain at St. Michel is a classic Parisian meeting place and is always thronging with people in more or less agitated states of impatience, unless they are simply snap-happy tourists taking the same old pics in front of the same old angel...

But this guy grabbed my attention as rather poignant. Standing alone, or possibly with some embarrassed friends nearby, forlornly Waiting For Nadia. I never discovered if he found her or not, but I hope he did. I'm not sure if any Nadia would have done of if it had to be a specific and special Nadia he was on the lookout for.

The angel is also curiously holding his arm aloft, although he's probably alluding to something much weightier than missing meetings. Maybe Nadia's up there...
