I generally avoid photographs of this location – the Pont des Artes in Paris – because it’s been so often photographed and has become so iconic that what can I possibly add? But clichés interest me, so I decided to go all out on the clichés with this shot. Street musician? Check. Pont des Artes? Check. Bokeh? Check.
Is there ever any better place for a little dance than the street on a warm evening?
Sometimes the world just looks clearer when it is out of focus.
Oftentimes it looks even clearer when it is in Pantone 4975c or thereabouts.
Maybe. Pah! Who really knows their Pantone numbers? But there or thereabouts is the number that corresponds almost perfectly to the colour of beautiful melancholy.
