Rue de Rivoli Réflexions

Paris, France

I took this shot from inside Le Musée du Louvre. I'll post some different crops of this photo another time. I chose this crop because it has the most reflections.


I'll be adding this to Weekend Reflections and The Weekend in Black and White.

  11. I'm curious : what is the strange white thingy at the foot of the lamppost ? Is that a reflection from the inside of the building, or something on the floor ?

    Nice shot, anyway...

  16. I love that there is only one person and one car, each going in an opposite direction, and so much pavement left for reflecting.

  18. Don't think I can add much to what's been said: terrific capture and composition, nice motion and reflections, perfect crop for the theme. And so Paris. I think I've said it before; you can have the rain. :-)

  19. Great framing with beautiful reflections, I love the sensation of movement of the girl's umbrella. Greetings.

  20. James, like it, but I'll stick my neck out. Crop it Horizontally just above the umbrella to remove the top bit and you have a 1930s Paris type shot.

  22. Your shot reminds of one from a famous photographer from another era..also taking shots of Paris.

    Great action and movement along with those reflections.

    Happy B&W Weekend. David/ Houston
