Walking into the Menu


This photograph is dedicated to Nathalie from Avignon in Photos. She often posts marvellous reflection (and shadow) photographs on her wonderful blog. Recently she posted one and made the comment that you have to keep moving your position till you get it right. That's just what I did here. We are in Place G Clemenceau, looking at a restaurant window, the menu written on the glass. I got my position right so I could see the plane tree and restaurant tables in the reflection and then waited until the right people walked into the image - et voila!

  6. Your title really sets us up for the experience of the shot. The effect is a bit otherworldly and entirely wonderful. Great image, Jilly. I'm like V...no patience at all.
