When I was walking the river Seine a few days ago I passed spot that is favored for wedding photos.
The subjects of those photos almost always appear to a casual observer- and I am certainly casual - to be Chinese.
I have no idea what was the ethnicity of the young couple that I saw in that venue today, but their religion was clearly Muslin.
The young woman in a quais-sweeping length white satin gown - neck high of course - had on her head, exposing only her face, what I would call a Martha Washington hat.
Except that it was made of the same material as the gown, not homespun.
And it had several crenelated layers.
And it was really attractive.
God she was beautiful.
I almost asked to take her picture.
