And now for a moment of sarcasm...


No tutorial today. Just a scene from the metro in Paris. The caption reads "And if Christmas lasted all year?" I don't think I could have made a better arrangement of people/poses/colors if I had planned it. My favorite serendipitous detail is hard to notice at this size: The woman on the right is covering up the "or" of the cell phone service logo so that instead of "orange" we get "ange" (angel) with a TM (trademark registered) next to it. This is my kind of twisted Christmas card.

The "danger de mort" sign doesn't hurt, either...

So, how conspicuously were you in your role as photographer as you shot this? I feel like any time I take my camera out in the metro, everyone is very conscious about where I start pointing it--even on the opposite quai.

I was sitting directly across from them with my big camera, so I put the camera on my lap and shot blind, checked the result, and shot again until I got it right.

Sneaky shooting!
