Walking the dog in the old Paris. A street photo taken in Rue Nevers just off the Pont Neuf. Old outfit in old Paris.
A little while back when walking around in Paris (about the same time as I took Farris Smith’s photo the Jazzman) I was looking down this one-way street thinking the lights sort of look magically old and right in place.
As I was there a lady came out of one of the doors to take the dog out for a walk, she just looked unusual, not sure if it was the size, the headdress or what. But I took a few photos, and this one came out best.
A few tips I can give on street photo are:
1. Keep your cap off.
2. Leave your aperture to 5.6, iso to about 400 and stay in aperture mode. That should be about right for most situations and you’ll be ready to shoot. Of course there are plenty of situations where that’s not going to be good and you’ll need to change.
Otherwise, my move happened and while all wasn’t sweetness and light (I guess no move is) that’s all water under the Bridge now and we’re happy to be in the new place. I’ll be posting a couple of pics of our new home on my Google profile.
