The moon came up on the horizon, red as a fireball, in seemingly perfect alignment with the Pantheon and Les Invalides. I haven’t made any changes or enhancements to the photo… the moon really was that red as it came up on the horizon. It later turned golden as it got higher and higher in the sky.”

This is a photo of me sitting at one of my favorite spots on the banks of the Seine. Who could imagine that six months later Notre Dame would go up in flames.”
