Afternoon On The Pont Des Arts - Parisian Style
Photograph - Photo
This, for me, was very much about being in the moment. I had been up and about much of the day. A sunny day in winter in Europe is not to be wasted indoors, particularly if you're there to capture a city!
By the time I reached the Pont des Arts, my energy levels were flagging and I sat down on a bench to grab a quick bite that I had purchased nearby. As my energy returned, I glanced to my right, and in a strange way, it was like seeing what someone to my left might have seen, someone eating in the afternoon sun before the Louvre Palace!
I had to pull out my camera and capture that scene as it was almost like documenting my own moment, but it was also a very Parisian moment, somone having a quick nosh on something they'd probably also grabbed at a boulangerie as they were passing by. With the beautiful old architecture as a backdrop, it will always be, for me at least, the epitome of a winter afternoon in Paris.
