     A funny story about this scene.  Back in 1977 I visited Paris, and I was 
taking a photo from almost this exact spot.  I was using my Kodak Retina IIA 
and a hand-held light meter.  A fellow walked up to me and pointed at the light 
meter, and then his camera.  He had a Retina III.  He needed a light meter 
reading.  He was Italian and didn't speak any French.  I didn't speak any 
Italian.  But we both understood numbers in German.  So, at the top of the 
Italian Steps I gave this Italian fellow a light meter reading in German.
