Photo Friday – new name….same idea

Well, it used to be called Photo of Week, but it seemed a bit misleading as the pictures weren’t always taken that week.  Anyways, I like the new name so who cares?


I took this photo at Buttes Chaumont, a large park in the 19th arrondissment in Paris.  This man made waterfall and cavern are always a great location for a photo, so I went with my NEX-3 and Holga lens attached.  I was very excited on arrival to see this strange man at the base of the falls.  He was madly sweeping back and forth in the water with a large stick, oblivious to anyone else in the cavern.  I took a long exposure which not only blurred the water but gave him a ghostly effect.  This combined with the Holga lens’ soft picture and vignette, gave an awesome picture indeed.
