The theme in the Gallery this week is Street Photography.
My friend and I visited Paris a few years back. I’d already been once previously but she had never seen it. My other half never wants to go so I thought why not go with a friend!
This was part of our “mini tour of Europe”, which comprised of Belgium and France. So very very mini. Anyhoo, we arrived at our hotel and kept seeing signs for Roland Gaross. Not being very sporty we had no idea what it was and dismissed it for some local attraction at first. Instead we hurried to the centre to see all the important attractions like the Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, the Louvre etc.
A day or two later we asked the hotel receptionist what Roland Gaross was. Her answer was a very enthusiastic “The French Open of course!!”.
It turned out we were only staying a mile away from the tennis and the French Open was in its opening rounds. We got day tickets to the games and had a wander around the courts. We particularly enjoyed watching the French Jeremy Chardy and shouting “Allez Jeremy!!!” alot and trying in vain to get his autograph despite not really knowing him nor being a fan of tennis.
Just for the day though, it was a lot of fun!
