Photo of the Week

I took this picture on our last day of our 6 month stay in Paris.  It’s a picture I’d been planning to take for a long time, in fact I have a similar one I did with my d70.  The original was taken on a night time walk with my dad several years ago.  He has a great eye for composition, and while the original was taken from the landing of the staircase, this one was taken from platform level.  Many of the Metro stations in Paris are unique, and this one is definitely my favourite.  I am still sad that I never went to the Arts et Metiers station, but we’ll be back sometime…

 

Taken with my Hasselblad xpan and Fuji Pro 400H film, handheld.

Photo of the Week

This week’s photo is from Potsdammer Platz in Berlin, Germany.  It’s a truly amazing place with an incredible history.  It used to be a sort of no man’s land between the old East and West Germany’s, but has since experienced some renewal.  There are now many buildings, restaurants, etc, and it’s a very busy place during the day as well as at night.

This shot was taken with my Hasselblad Xpan using the 45mm lens and Fuji Pro 400H film.  I had a bunch of shots from the same night and I really love how they all turned out so great.
