Photographer's Note

Dumb luck played a role again. As I was taking a short break myself and enjoying this view over Vieux Port and Notre Dame de la Garde, these two gentlemen decided to have a seat right in front of me...so of course, it only seemed natural to incorporate them into a photo. ☺

With so many traditional views along the port itself, I thought I’d use this opportunity to try a different perspective. Unfortunately the lines of sight were somewhat limited, but hopefully this puts a slightly new twist on these popular attractions. I intentionally used a large aperture and focused on the cathedral to try and create some distance with the compressed and vertical composition.

A great way to round out the day in Marseille, can’t complain about this kind of view and Mediterranean atmosphere!

Thanks for stopping by.
