Pierrefonds by Photojournalist Clay McLachlan

Pierrefonds by Photojournalist Clay McLachlan
Pierrefonds Pierrefonds is a magical little unimposing village about an hour from central Paris. I love how driving just out of the capitol I am completely surrounded by nature. On this warm autumn afternoon I took my 5 year-old daughter out on her first pedal boat and we discovered the lake together slowly and inquisitively. The serenity of this lake and the reflection I capture while my daughter was pedaling furiously create a memory I will hold dear. For me this is the essence of photography, the act of capturing a pure moment in time, not before and not after which leaves some imagination and interpretation for the viewer. Technical details: iPhone 3GS, Hipstamatic app, John s lens, Ina’s 1969 film, post processing to black and white within iPhone photoshop app. Congratulations to Clay on the Tuesday release of his new book and DVD, Cooking with Chocolate: Essential Recipes and Techniques.
