Les Concierges Rue du Dragon

This photograph is of an elderly couple relaxing in their home. The man sits reading the newspaper and the woman peacefully waters the plants on her windowsill. Their place is beautifully decorated with lace curtains, old family portraits, and fine china on shelves in the background. Doisneau gives a calm moment in the lives of the couple, although it is still a brief second. In the next moment the woman could be done watering and the man could finish reading his paper.
