Random Act of Kindness in the Jardin des Tuileries

So I've been slacking on the post this week. There are several reasons for this, really. But I would like to place the majority of the blame for my laziness on PHB - Post-Halloween Blues. It's a serious condition and it affects thousands of people worldwide. It's like I blew all my creativity in the frenzy and excitement of my favorite holiday. And now, I'm just blllaaahhhh. Oh well, I'll get over it. In the meantime, I'm going to pick up where I left off before the most awesome month of the year took over, with pics of Paris...

Whilst strolling through the Jardin des Tuileries, we happened upon this lovely little scene that was just waiting to be photographed. There's something special about capturing strangers in random acts of kindness. This sweet gentleman brought a big bag of birdseed to the garden just to feed the sparrows. If that doesn't make you make you tilt your head and sigh, "aw" then, well... I don't know about you.

This last one reminds me of a line from the movie "Roxanne". When Steve Martin's character is coming up with twenty jokes better than "Big Nose" one of them is:

 "Complimentary: You must love the little birdies to give them this to perch on!"

That's a great movie, by the way. If you haven't seen it, you should.

Halloween is the fairest of them all...

Halloween is over. Uggh, it pains me to even type the words. But all good things must come to an end, I suppose. I bid my favorite time of the year adeu and leave you with some of my favorite shots of my best (of the three I wore) costume - courtesy of Photo Booth.

Would you like an apple?

Looks like someone had fun in the photo booth! Yes, I know I'm a dork.
