Thanks Steady, Good Egg, Douglas, Alan, DT and Dein.
I was walking along one of the backstreets near the Seine River and saw the possibilities. I walked to a place that offered a perspective that I liked, preset my manual film camera and waited a couple of minutes, not looking directly at the man at all. When I saw what I wanted, I quickly raised my camera, zoomed for the composition I wanted, focused and fired. From the time I raised the camera to the time I pressed the shutter release was less than five seconds. I took the one shot and walked away.
I doubt the man knew I had taken his picture.
Not the best technique for taking portraits- but I didn't want a portrait. I wanted the man in the setting as it was whether I'd been there or not.
