The Past Recedes, The Future Arrives


Paris Plage, France

Another favorite image of mine, taken by the Seine in the steamy summer of 2008. I have got a few versions of it where I’ve managed to coax the little girl out of the shadows a bit more (and without that pesky watermark) but couldn’t find it just now.

    1. Yes, the walk along the Seine at this point is called Paris Plage (Paris Beach) and they had misting spray in the hot summer which created the diffusion effect. I was just lucky to catch the moment with the woman walking away and the little girl towards or, as Alex Webb said when he saw it, “the photo gods were smiling.”
