Pillar, Shadow, Moto

Avenue du President Wilson, Paris

These pillars link the Palais de Tokyo to the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris. I was struck by the strong light behind them, the wide shadows they were casting and how the shadows linked to the row of all black motorcycles but I couldn’t quite find the angle I wanted.

Iconic

Paris Photo was held this year at the Grand Palais Ephémère, a massive marquee erected on the Champ de Mars, at the other end of which stands the Eiffel Tower. We therefore stayed in a hotel nearby and found ourselves confronted at frequent points in our walks, by sights of the iconic structure which it is impossible not to photograph. So let’s try and get that out of the way at once! (Click any image to see them all full-sized.)
