Feeling like Man Ray or Orson Wells (My apologies for invoking gods) in the dark, wet streets that kept me walking for hours. Today it says so much more and I am anxious to return to Paris.

    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.
