The Toulousian Ice Cream

I’ve recently returned from a trip to Toulouse in Southern France. Unlike the UK there were some beautiful sunny days.

Whilst sitting in Place du Capitole I noticed this woman sitting with an ice cream. She was holding it in front of her as if contemplating the taste and enjoyment she would get from it.

Then came the enjoyment of the taste.

It’s not usually very nice watching people eat, so photography of people eating doesn’t usually give pleasant results, although at times they can be funny.

Then came the business of the lick, which is probably the best.

A good lick

It is funny how people can become so absorbed in the enjoyment of the things they are consuming, that they are not aware of how they look or a lot of things going on around them, especially photographers.

When I turned a couple of minutes later it looked as though she had thoroughly enjoyed it.

  1. So, you had some sunny days in Toulouse ? Great ! You were lucky to be in the south of France, this first of may on the west coast was awful, raining all the time during 3 days ! really not in the mood to appreciate an ice cream … I like the first shot, she is really expectating the taste of the ice cream. I can’t wait for your other shots !

  2. Yes Esther, the weather was beautiful, up to 30C on some days. It rained on the 1st May but was still warm.

    There are plenty to come! πŸ™‚

  4. Hahaha. She certainly ate that cone quickly, but to be fair a good ice cream would be eaten quickly by anyone. I wonder what flavor she had.
