photoblog image City Driving: Paris

City Driving: Paris

There is something about the combination of a slightly rainy day, the old city, and the new city that, when mixed together in this scene, has some real Paris magic in it. Looking down the road here while crossing at the intersection I couldn't resist snapping a photo (and taking the chance of doing so in the middle of a major Parisian avenue!). When I was looking at the picture today I wasn't thrilled with it – the grey sky and drizzle made it feel muted and dull but I was comfortable with the composition. While I shot this frame for colour I thought it would be worthwhile trying to do some post processing on it and I'm pleased with the results now.
