Paris has always been a special place for street photography for me and, although I haven't been there for far too long, I try and emulate  the work of its' great photographers such as HC-B, Robert Doisneau and (dare I say) Peter Turnley. For me it is like fishing on a great trout stream in that you are always bound to have a good catch.

This was taken in 2000 using my M6 and Kodak T-Max 400 film home processed. I think it was with the 50mm Summicron lens, although I can't be 100% sure.

Nice image.

By the way, I think Peter Turnley can be considered a french "ad honorem", as he first came to Paris in 1975.

His book "French kiss, a love letter to Paris" is one of the best photographic essay on La Ville Lumière!

Regards.

Thanks for your kind comment. I agree 100% about about Peter, who I believe has dual nationality, French and American. I think the book you mention is basically a rehash of his previous book 'Parisians' which is superb black and white photography. I also have his colour book on Cuba which a dear friend in the US arranged for him to sign for me as a birthday present. Both are thoroughly recommended by me and (of course) shot on Leica.

You're right Gerry, both books are superb.

Take care, stay safe.

Very nice Gerry. Being from Paris, myself,  for me this is a very typical Parisian scene that I miss greatly; more especially by La Seine.  By the way, don't also forget about Rodin's "Kiss"! ;)

Thanks Louis - how could I ever forget Rosins 'Kiss' and the wonderful Rodin museum there.

      I am slowly managing to get out more now, ands back in my usual coffee shop yesterday. I couldn't resist taking a candid image of this young lady at the counter because of her height. She must have been about 1.8 metres.

      It was great to finally be able to get out to my favourite cafe yesterday and drink coffee with a friend I haven't seen since Christmas. I have been having problems with my knee and have found walking almost impossible but thankfully I am just using one stick now.
      This is one image I grabbed whilst sat outside the cafe in the beautiful sunshine

      When I was a young child my summers were spent walking the 600 or so metres from my home to the nearby river to play in its clear waters. Now close on 70 years later this image reminds me so much of those happy days. That is the power of photography.
