As I wrote in my earlier post, I wanted to take a few more photos of the Parisian classics, the monuments and the great things that Paris has to offer.
So this weekend (as I went to see Sherlock Holmes movie which I loved) I had some time before me to take a few shots. I figured Arc de Triomphe would be a simple and good place to go next.
I went up to the Etoile about 45 minutes before twilight began, it was grey and slightly rainy so I knew that I would only have a few minutes to get the “blue hour” and still get a nice blue sky even though it was cloudy. I walked around the Arc to find the angle I liked most and this turned out to be it. Actually it was mainly because the other side was full of police and army buses who were there on a parade, so I didn’t have too much of a choice.
The photo is a bit of a copy of a friend of mines (photoserge.com see his photo here) but I took it from a different angle – and duplicating other people is a great way to learn.
Next up I guess I will try to make a copy of Trey Ratclif’s photos (no not just yet).
Enjoy it and feel free to comment!
