It was a cold, snowy, foggy morning in Paris.

This photo was taken back in February on a cold weekday morning.  It had snowed a little the night before and it was still on the ground in some spots.  The only problem was that the temperature was hovering just above freezing.  In the morning there was a thick blanket of fog covering all of Paris, so the top of the Eiffel Tower could just barely be made out.  As I was walking around taking pictures there was a lone person heading off to work across the lawn. With all the fog the colors of the image are very muted, it seemed perfect to be a slightly sepia toned black and white image.

    • Thanks, really glad you like it! It was my first time in Paris, and while it wasn’t the normal sunny blue skies that most people wish for it was pretty amazing walking around the city in the blanket of fog.
