Photographer's Note

This picture was taken in the hall of the 'hôtel particulier' of Tallard. This is situated in the heart of Paris, that is the Marais.

I send a b&w version of my shot. Well, it was a difficult choice : colour or b&w... Even my grandma didn't know. Finally, I decided to send in b&w. Why?

1. Although it was a sunny day, this hôtel is always very cool inside. b&w version is more adaptated to this coolness ;

2. An historical reason : this part of the building is dated from the 17th century, that is the Golden Age of France. b&w suits better to historical shots. There is tough like a feeling of nostalgy inside it.

I hope you will enjoy this shot. I've been trying to take it correctly since days! Tell me your ideas about using b&w here!
