Photographer's Note

M*rd*, il pleut

You are a tourist from southern Europe and waited for the right season to come to Maastricht, the most epicurean city in Holland..….and are rewarded with grey skies and torrential rains. M*rd*, what to do now? Your leaflet with the touristic promenade is already soaked and hard to decipher. Maybe step into a gallery…. Nah……maybe a museum then? Anyway, maybe bringing this parapluie wasn’t such a hot idea after all, the text like a prophecy, tempting fate…M*rd*….

Shot during a wet but otherwise very fine and gastronomically pleasing visit to Maastricht last Saturday.

PCS2 tech: cropped, altered the contrast, saturation, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, ran the high pass filter on a separate layer in hard light mode to make the textures look more lively, USM-ed , added a frame and saved for the web.
