Paris—No 8


I have strong political opinions, however, I try to keep any of them out of this blog.  Why?  Because this blog is about photography, not politics.
Today, I make an exception. 
I got up at my usual time (around 4:30), went to the “Y” to work out, read a number of articles and editorials in the Wall Street Journal and mailed my estimated income taxes.  In short, I am ripe to discuss politics, but since this is a photography blog and I am doing photos from Paris, how do I bridge the gap.
No matter what country you live, no matter whether you are on the right or left, or no matter what your age or sex, I think this statue, more-or-less, captures most peoples views of politicians today.
Enough said!
Camera settings:  Nikon D800, 28-300mm f/3.5~5.6 at 65mm, ISO 1,600, f/11 at 1/125th of a second.
Post Processing:
Lightroom 4—applied Vivid preset during import, cropped image, set white and black points, increased shadows and decreased highlights and added vibrance and clarity.


  1. Not a great photo without your comments. Pretty damn good one with your comments.
