Rue des Barres is a little cobblestone street very near Île Saint-Louis. It’s charming and it has a few nice shops. The church you see up the street is the St-Gervais-et-St-Protais Church that, according to Wikipedia, has a very good french baroque style organ. I must check it out one of these days.
Friday’s Pictures is a recurring topic that features excellent photos by several photo artists and it revolves around a theme each week.
This week the theme is Moving in a Train Station, be that a train or a human.
I find trains a fascinating subject. Train stations are one of my favorite places to photograph. Strangers in a hurry, moving trains, tearful rendezvous… You will never run out of subjects.

Beautiful use of light and motion. The hint of the woman makes it for me.

This photo is not framed nor in focus, yet it makes use of that to give us the sense of urgency of the stranger trying to catch the train. Love the gloomy overall feel given by the black and white. Perfect example of a good photo breaking many rules.

Another example of a gloomy visual feeling made possible with texture, desaturation and framing. Makes us feel like we are spying the lonely voyage of this stranger. Notice the use of a square frame to emphasize the high ceiling and give the traveler a more fragile look.
I hope you enjoy this little trip to Paris in grey tones. I love this city so much!

Love the shades of grey, the texture and the mood of this rainy day photo.
