Yes, I know, I pick the title on “Focus Numériques” who has a tutorial that includes some post-treatment tricks with Lightroom, readily transferable to competing software.

Those who follow me on flickr had probably seen some photos of this series made during a rainy day of the Saints, in the Saint-Vincent Cemetery in Montmartre (Paris). Not all… because some of the photos are new here. My original idea was not to do a coherent set. Here’s why and how I came there. Continue reading
Here is a picture taken on a snowy night in the Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris. EXIFs are formal, and it was 1:09 in the morning and the clock of the station, basically agrees.
