Rue Budé

Île Saint-Louis Paris, France

~~~Some yelling, the sound of a slapped face, a slammed door and the echoing clack of heels on the wet ground. The music started playing as the credits rolled. ~~~~Fin

Not really but since some of my photos have been looking like movie scences I thought I would set the mood. :)



This is my post for Weekend Reflections and The Weekend in Black and White.

  3. Oh James, this is a truly great photo! Love the bw and such mood!

    Thanks for your thoughts on Europe. That's funny because I was going back and forth between Prague and Salzburg so your words were helpful.

  4. James, lately it seems I step away from my computer for a few hours and there are so many posted words and images to catch up on...some very good, some less so, all worthy of comment, and then I arrive here, and see something that is beyond word or image, so pure, it provokes in me not admiration that can be captured in a comment, but a strong deep response that makes me feel all is good and right in the world. Yes, you did that. Apologies for the gush.

  5. Let's try something else..
    A phone rings, we hear a shout of joy, a door slamed, a girl goes out , she 'is in a hurry and she did not even think to take an umbrella..She's crying of happiness, her tears are mixed with rain drops, but she does not care: Her man is back, calling from the train station, what a good surprise !! Armstrong sings "what a wonderful world",
    Happy end!:o)

  6. hehe Malyss and her creative mind! Loved this idea!

    And yours!

    You are so talented James, this picture really could be a movie scene, I also think about music, and sometimes in the right time while I'm visiting so beautiful or special place, some musics pop up in my mind ( heart as well ).
    Bravo!

  13. Nothing better than a good movie! Got any popcorn? Awesome James!

  14. This is just as good the second time around!

    Sorry, I apologize for talking about travel in your comments section but I wanted to respond back to you. I'm thinking we'll be in Europe 15 days. I've been once before and visited London, Bath, Brugges, Paris - although none with enough time. Don't want to make that mistake again, but still want to see a few places. If I HAVE to choose, I'm inclined towards Prague, Salzburg, Cinque Terre, Venice (not all on one trip)...may end up in either Ireland, Scotland, or England for part as well.

  15. All back figures let me feel a flow of time.
    And I seem to become leaving behind...

    She may be a reflection of the towns.

    Yes. All your portraiture is scenes of the movies.
    I remember walking black man who wore a coat.
    It was a wonderful work.

  16. Mouillent le macadam,
    Tes pas résonnent
    La parisienne avait une âme
    Qui trottait en automne...

  18. James...you've been holding out! I didn't know you had 2 blogs. Stunning image. Jumped off the linky at me. Love this. The reflections are so understated...lovely.

  20. Joli noir et blanc pour évoquer les rues parisiennes

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wonderful! Tell me you didn't take this one in the early 20th Century. You tucked it away and brought it with you when you reincarnated a few decades later :)

  22. James, I would suggest that she has just left her own flat and is on her way to a rendezvous. Much to look forward to... Beautiful shot.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Fantabulous, it does look like a movie scene, I love it.

    ReplyDelete

  26. Ah, were were there in August, and it rained! Actually it stormed. Love the mood in this pic!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Very much like a closing movie scene! Walk away in the dark rain! Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh I just love this image. The light and composition raise this into the realm of the allegorical.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I read your comments and then the 'not really' part and just had a great laugh.
    That's a fantastic photo...I'd say better than a movie shot.
    The bicycles add that last, perfect touch.

  32. I think this is my favorite photo today!!! My 17 year old daughter is studying French in school (her fourth year) and will be traveling to Paris with her class in April...such a wonderful experience for a girl her age!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ah, the power of suggestion! I was so in the scene. What an incredible picture!

  35. Perfect photo in black and white. Nice depth in the photo and I can hear the heels of the street.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The way you catch a person in your photos really enhances the shots. I like the one a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Strolling Down a Paris Lane...
    Very, very nice shot, James!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm sure she's off to Berthillons to get an ice cream to cheer herself up with then...
    :-)

    Or maybe off to the Relais d'Entrecote for a good dinner to help put things in perspective...
