This image struck me as a quintessentially Parisian moment. A flash of black coat, black tights and black shoes moving swiftly down a rain-slick Boulevard Saint-Germain. The photographer captured the figure’s movement while the yellow autumn leaves at her feet remain still, alluding perfectly to the return of l’automne and bustling Paris boulevards. The abstraction in this photo is also it’s strong point. Having few factual details to go by, we focus on the atmosphere created, which allows us to bring our own story to the photograph.
