That one night in Paris

Summer sunsets in Paris are late – nearly 10:00 – so you’ve got to stay up late to see the city in full darkness.

But it’s worth it to get to see the urban landscape, decorated with people enjoying the mild summer night, in darkness.

Her Own Pace

I saw this scene from a bus window. It’s easy to tell that the woman exasperated by the little girl’s pace along the sidewalk. And it’s also clear that the little girl doesn’t care one bit: she’s quite comfortable with the way her day is unfolding.

Weariness of travel

Remember the other day, when I said I didn’t make pictures of people, unless I did make pictures of people?

Same, here.

Football was on her mind

Multitasking was the deal that night. I stopped at the bar at the Holland Hotel, where I was able to get a window table. While I enjoyed a drink and dinner, I made a series of images of pedestrians. Yes! Three things at once.

But, as you could have predicted, doing all that stuff at once is a guarantee that at least one of them is probably not going to be all that successful. And this is the only pedestrian photo I liked. But I like it at a lot because of the way the TV’s reflection landed on the woman’s head.

Street Rhythm

A side street in downtown Bryan seems plain, but if you look at it long enough the subtle complexities start to show up. Like the rhythm of the parking-space lines. The pair of downspouts bracketing the door. The paired up bench and trash can. The street light’s shadow. A bit of graffiti. A wavy bit of wire hanging from the wall. The line that crosses the street and heads straight to the door.

And so on.
