little birds

i am crazy about sparrows. around here we call them 'sprovians.' in paris one see's people taking photos of statues and each other. we like to stroll through the tuilleries and take snaps of these tiny birds. they are so delightfully unfancy!
french singer, edith piaf, was nicknamed 'little sparrow.' thanks to the heartbreakingly great film 'la vie en rose' many people are now familiar with the wonderful edith.
