paris in black and white 2011
I really like the look of Paris in black and white, so each day I'd take my camera with me and would just shoot whatever took my fancy.
Some days it would be markets, other days it would be buildings or details.
I spent 2 years developing and printing black and white film when I studied photography and those photographic chemicals don't agree with me. Sydney is short on labs which still develop black and white film, so I'm lucky to have found someone who lives close by who develops the film for me.
I found this random piece of elegant graffiti in the Marais, I think. I shot it in colour as well but I think the black and white image is the better of the two.
I found this great clock the day I visited the Musée Marmottan Monet. I love the building reflected in the clock face and no, it wasn't a happy accident. I had to stand on my tippy toes to get the building in the frame.
Doesn't this image just scream Paris?
Still 2 more shopshoots to come and then the travel related posts will be over for another year,
I hope you've enjoyed them.
