I walked by this Monsieur twice. Going and coming.
When I asked him if I could photograph him he asked
I was a bit shocked that he didn’t speak English. The little bit of French that I learned in college did not come in handy. I forgot everything.
I should have said, Puis-je prendre votre photo? but I pointed at his clothes and used the word photo instead of picture.
Ahhh, oui, oui.
