Across the Street from the Moulin Rouge, Paris – Somewhere In Time.
Somewhere in Time is a weekly photo from around the world. Enjoy!
Ok, I’m trying out a new gallery here. Please click on the bottom right hand corner and view the photo in full screen. It looks awesome!
I was standing in front of the Moulin Rouge when I took this photo in Paris. You can see from the people in the center there is always a large crowd here taking photos of the Moulin Rouge, trying to get their perfect shot. It’s tough in places like that to get a photo that is unique and still reminds you of a specific moment.
I had noticed the amazing lighting on the building across the street and the fantastic clouds rolling in. I realized the light would never hit the Moulin Rouge in the same way so I took some photos of this plain, non historic building across the street. I also knew HDR would really bring out the beauty of the clouds so I intentionally shot 3 photos at different exposures to make them come to life. I love this photo. It’s nowhere in particular but it really reminds me of Paris and standing in the crowd at this famous landmark. It also reminds me of the fantastic rainstorm we got caught in one day when we were having a picnic. I still remember the way the rain bounced off the cobblestones and the way everyone went running for cover. Everything is perfect in Paris – even the rain.
