Hello Ann,

Oops, I almost missed this one - just been a bit busy these last couple of days.

This is a lovely shot and one which (like so many of your finer ones) owes much of its beauty to its sheer simplicity - simplicity of composition, lines and colour palette.

As far as I can see, there are two barns here actually, but they're perfectly placed in the frame and a fine strong diagonal exists between the bright yellow field in the foreground and the slightly darker one behind. The sharpness and clarity of the barns is exceptional and I love how that contrasts with the softly out of focus foreground. An excellent presentation.


Kind Regards,


P.S. Always the sleuth (and one who also likes to study exif data occasionally), I'm wondering quite what you "cloned" in this picture? :o)

Default To CLODO: Paris

Hello Claude

Thank you for the link. And maybe you know a book called "Paris mon Amour", a book of classic photographs edited by Jean-Claude Goutrand and published by Taschen? I'm honoured that my photo made you think of the French humanist photographers: Doisneau, Brassai, Cartier-Bresson, et al are among my all-time favourites, and of course are all featured in the above book, along with many others. Thank you again.

Smile Paris book

I've checked, I have one called "Paris, la ville et ses photographes" written by Patrick Deeces-Vincke - edition Arthaud

By the way, you picture reminds me I always wanted to stroll in the Mouffetard street, a real old Paris area; It's done! I will post soon a few pictures.
