Photographer's Note

I was initially attracted to this street corner café because of the strong yellow color of the mailbox and red canopy, I thought it made a bold combination. Funny how often the most unassuming objects can take on new life in a different location. Plus, I thought this was a good representation of a typical Parisian scene.

As I was lining up the composition, I noticed an oncoming bicyclist…and so I thought, hey…why not give it a shot and see what happens as he passes by. Trial and error, and sometimes you just get lucky. I’ve taken seemingly hundreds of café/bistro pictures, but this ended up being one of my favorites for the “ghostly” effect due to the simple blur of a speedy rider. And you see, not all spirits are confined to riding the metro…some get out and exercise, unlike myself!? :)

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend everyone.
