Photographe 1900

 
This scene near the palace screamed for black and white or sepia...

Cette scène près de la place d'Armes ne pouvait qu'être prise en noir et blanc ou sépia...

What an amazing scene to stumble upon! I love your choice to do b&w or sepia. I'd love to know what these old-timey photogs were up to (nosy me:)

Lowell said...

My vote is for sepia. It's a fantastic scene right out of the 1920s! Beautiful job, Ciel! Smile! Hold it! Just a bit longer! OK!

I do agree with Lowell! A scene right out of the 20s indeed! Love the sepia! Terrific! Hope your week is going well, Ceil!!

so cool to find an old time camera being used!

Randy said...

I like the b&w shot.

Bob Crowe said...

The photographer's clients must be wealthy. Those one-shot film cartridges for a large view camera cost a fortune.

Great choice. Old style photos cry out for that silver gelatin look.

You didn't ask, but I'm voting sepia. Adds to the old timey feeling.

Olivier said...

Cezar and Léia said...

They both work very well for the subject, be interesting to see their end result.

Bergson said...

j'aime bien le sépia

Alain said...

Il me semble avoir reconnu Olivier derrière l'appareil.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Engagement photo perhaps? Looks like a medium format camera, an expensive specialty. I like the mono a little more , but not much, they are both great.

JM said...

Yes, amazing scene. Lucky you! :-)

Birdman said...

I'll take the black/white.

I'm in love with sepia at the moment Ciel, so the second image gets my vote..

VP said...

Please send me a copy of the original in color, I am probably the only one one this planet who will like it as is...

@ VP: I knew you would be. I'm sorry! :-( And I don't even have the original anymore.

J'ai une petite preference pour le noir et blanc. Mais les deux sont superbs.
