Montmartre la Nuit

Paris, France

I wanted to take a picture of this man walking up a hill but it seemed too dark. Then suddenly he was illuminated by a car's headlights. Thanks for the spotlight! :-)

  9. Ditto what Pat said. Once again, your timing is impeccable! It's very cinematic. I love the way your photos always encourage my imagination to attach my own narrative to them.

  11. This photo is fantastic. The car came at just the right moment. And the photo in black and white is hard to beat. I like it so much! Maybe you should make a poster of it.

    PS: Rocky says "wuff wuff" (meaning thank you very much) for your visit on his travel blog.
