Week 10: still walking around town (part two)

Hi folks, still trying to walk around town and find interesting things to photograph. Week ten was another push-processed roll but hey! strong sunshine came out on the last few days (during which time I took the photographs here), and I was reduced to photographing everything tiny apertures, fast shutter speeds and with a big thick orange filter.

The first photograph – I saw this car with the front hub cap ripped off and just at the right moment, a bicycle showed up. Luckily, as I had said last time around, I had been practicing quick-fire photography with the Leica. And there was a stop-light.

The Hazards of driving in Paris

Then a walk around Luxembourg, and I noticed this statue through the trees for the first time. Yes, I admit I take too many pictures in there, but it is one of my favourite places to take photographs.

And I need I need to try to look elsewhere, which is why I too this photograph of the ground and some shadows.

Shadows, winter sunshine.

Walking back to the apartment, I saw this: some oyster shells on a park bench with the legend “not all homeless people are alcoholics’.
