I’m taking a break from reviewing just to show a few pictures from a recent work trip to Paris. I mostly used in camera B&W for quick snaps.
The round shape on top of a bump in the Place Saint Opportune paving makes me feel like it could start rolling if the hand wasn’t holding it. A circle in a square makes a powerfully centric composition and restores stability. Maybe I should have done the opposite to strengthen the feeling of tension?
This is a detail of the arches on the front of the large church on the same location (see below). This was made for the ongoing test of the NEX-5N vs the Leica M8.2, but hush 😉
One thing I love in Paris are the roofs. If you can get a view from a vantage point, it’s well worth your time. Stay away from the posh quarters and head for the older areas for a jumble of pipes, scaffolds, chimneys and … people.
For something more traditional, here are a few passages (blurred, sorry) and …
… the almost cliché café table.
I’m a regular at a hotel in the center and feel at home there. But I continued shooting in B&W and chose empty subjects to render a lonely feeling. What do you think?
And finally, an amusing figure (from the Musée Grévin) in a window in the passageway leading to the hotel. Which do you prefer, colour or B&W ?
