a perfect splash of 291 stepped out in front of me earlier this evening and reminded me not to forget my pantone project… This was taken with my favourite lens: a very old Summaron 35mm f/3.5, close to wide open.
Filmothèque on rue Champollion in Paris is the place to go for classic movies including those made in the days before it was all cgi, when film still seemed to have some authentic magic. Sometimes they show even older films, made in the days when real men wore hats. This is an old photograph, taken when I walked past and spotted this dapper looking hat-wearer tarrying with the fantasies of the silver screen some time around November or December 2010.
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.
