Evening in Montmartre
Lens: Pentax 18-135 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Paris 
Posted By: sealonsf, 05-31-2014, 08:18 AM

I love this photo because it encapsulates an evening in Montmartre - even to the Mona Lisa postcard behind the photographer - and looks almost like a movie set. I turned around, and there was the whole scene. I had one quick second to get the shot and was so happy that I did. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (I entered it in the K3 photo contest I liked it so much - fat chance of winning but it's certainly a different photo than most!)

Nice street scene! I like the little elements like the Mona Lisa, the driver's expression, the guy in the back left taking a picture. The Citroen really makes it.

Thanks! The evening light helped too.

Beautifully captured scene with lots of elements. The 2CV adds authenticity too.

I like it too. I've had a few busy street scenes....but this one on a busy street in France....with a 2CV and an assortment of people taking pictures....looks like a still from a European movie.
