Be Bop Robert Doisneau

Dancing Be-Bop

I saw this fabulous photograph by Robert Doisneau on Twitter this week, courtesy of @History_of_Cool.

It just fills me with joy: so evocative of a moment in time, carefree dancing Be Bop style in uber-cool Paris of the 1950’s and yet so timeless in its’ joie-de-vivre.

Searching for it on Google, led me to a lovely blog, Chasing Light by Doug Kim where I found a couple of blog posts on Robert Doisneau, containing the photo above, amongst many others, each topped and tailed by Robert Doisneau quotes, including this under Be Bop en cave:

Chance is the one thing you can’t buy. You have to pay for it and you have to pay for it with your life, spending a lot of time, you pay for it with time, not the wasting of time but the spending of time.

-Robert Doisneau

Wonderful photo, interesting blog, much joy.  Do click across and take a look.

Happy weekend.
