Default Peter Turnley

I'd appreciate if somebody could explain me this photo from Paris...

"Turnley who has lived in and photographed Paris for the past 25 yrs., worked early in his career as the assistant to the famous French photographer Robert Doisneau. His acclaimed book, Parisians, by Abbeville Press, with a preface by Doisneau and Edouard Boubat, is a wonderful contemporary portrait of daily life in the world's most beautiful city."

check out his other pictures, really nice

I think he flipped that image to look that way.... I've seen his work before, some good work, for sure.

Hi Maciek. It's upside down. I couldn't be sure just by looking at it, but I brought it into Photoshop and rotated 180 degrees. Strange that it is so difficult to see this as it is presented.

Cheers

I don't think it was shot through glass. If you rotate it 180 degrees, it looks quite different than what you see now. Give it a try, I was surprised at the difference.

It is a really strange one, isn't it? Looking at it as presented, you would swear there was a reflection.
