Solférino peek a boo?

Solférino Metro (Paris, France)
Here's another instance where things were not as they seemed.
It looked like she was playing peek a boo before I realized she was just fixing her make-up.

This will be my Weekend in Black and White post.

  12. This is so good, James. The black and white is the perfect choice for this image. I like how the wall curves at the top...such a dynamic composition!

    re: my Salton Sea images...you will see the "NOT so pretty" scene of the area in my Scenic Sunday post. You had better take a close look before you venture out there during one of your California visits!!!

  18. This is great James! Love the bw and graphics.
    I appreciate the trip info. Definitely just want to walk the streets and be and shoot. I'll be in Paris 2-4 days depending on what we decide. Did you like a particular neighborhood (I'm trying to choose)? I'm thinking about the Lowepro Passport sling bag.

  20. J'aime beaucoup ta photo. Ce n'est pas toujours évident de prendre les gens sans être intrusif!

    Bon dimanche

  21. Fantastic composition and timing. It appears to me that something's stuck in her left eye and she's trying to get rid of it:)
    Thanks for sharing.

  24. Very interesting post! Each one has each story. Mine is, she is reading a memo which makes her sad then angry and at last causes her headache. James, I love this!
