Paris Summer Soldes
The summer sales have officially begun. Summer was here in Paris in full force in April and May, but has since disappeared. It looks like warm weather will return next week, all the better for evening shopping during the sale season.
A couple of days ago I took my professional camera and hit the streets of Paris to see what I might discover. I walked a lot, which I feel I could do forever here, ducking into many alleys and under many awnings trying to avoid the intermittent rain showers.
I came across the Place des Victoires in the 1st arrondissement, a “Place” I never paid much attention to before as I usually meander down the rue des Petits Champs thinking of either Japanese Udon or a favorite destination for a glass of wine.
Here, I caught a glimpse of two women window shopping for the latest fashions at the Place des Victoires. I love how we see both the two white mannequins, the two women, and, after further inspection, also we can see a reflection that is unmistakably Paris, the centerpiece of the Place des Victoires.
Technical Details: Canon 5D Mark II, 45mm lens, F 2.8, ASA 400.
