I took a series of photos at this location, waiting for interesting passers-by, and by happenstance this chap happened along and totally completed the scene.
This is the kind of picture that can be used as an argument for film photography over digital. It reminded me of another picture, taken 100 years ago, that I saw this morning with a similar palette,
Film will always trump digital in my book. Then again, I’m the kind of guy that thinks LPs will always be superior to CDs, for many similar reasons.
What an astonishing likeness! Who was the photographer of that image?
I’m glad you also see the likeness. It was shot by Stéphane Passet in rue de Bièvre towards 1914.
This is very nice. The mood is fantastic.
Thanks, Yardley! I’m happy that you enjoy the image.
I agree completely with the above to comments. The ‘mood’ is excellent, so many interesting aspects to the photo.
Chris, thanks so much for your kind words! I’ll be uploading more shots from this roll at a later date, so please feel free to check back! 🙂

I love a well toned film image. The shadow on the man’s face is a great touch – very cool.
