City of Light by Rhoufi

Paris Series

Curious orange light from the rooms above a pharmacie in the Boulevard Saint-Michel make them appear to be portals into the devil’s own lair.

And this is what VampVamp felt should be standing on the balcony – can’t disagree really. Just wish the Lady with the Lash was there when I took the photo ;-))

It’s always fun to see what VV does with my images.

    Above a phatmacie, huh? Hmm…:) Great capture, the architecture takes me right back…:)!

  • Hi Rene, I have no idea why it looks like this. Some strange lighting design I guess, but it sure looked odd that’s why I took it. Maybe it’s the Samsung sensor in the K-7 :-(

    Pharmacist at work?? the dark Arts? Alchemy and all that……..? Love the ironwork on balcony, one of my thousand favorite aspects of Paris lol :-))

  • Alchemy, I like that! If you can see what looks like a gargoyle above the window, you can imagine some gothic dark art being performed inside. Probably mixing up weight loss pills. Thanks BC.

    this is great, almost looks dramatic, a scene that needs an act! :)

  • I wish it had a silhouette in one of the windows, then we would have our drama, a story at least. Thanks VV
