Champs-Élysées at dusk with rain. Paris, France,

Feeling like Man Ray or Orson Wells (My apologies for invoking gods) in the dark, wet streets that kept me walking for hours.

    Wonderful ambience! Terrific!

  • Thank you so much. That whole sort of gloomy rainy evening I walked for miles feeling as though Man Ray or Orson Wells would appear any minute.

  • This is fun. It is one of my favorite, and seemingly most controversial, photos. TTo me it is just the perfect reflection of a magical gloomy pouring rain day in Paris. Thank you for the feature.

    Congrats your wonderful piece has been featured today :)

  • I really love when this shot gets featured. It is one that I like and the most maligned shot that I have on RB so thanks for the feature, Tom.

    Love the mood and silhouette!

  • Thank you. I have to credit the shot to my freezing hands. Only a tripod would have stopped the tremor.

  • Thank you so much. It is one of my favorite images of Paris and is either loved or reviled. I stand by it and am glad that you like it, Tom.
