Paris Point and Shoot #2

I remembered the words of Travel Photographer Bob Krist when he talked about "working the scene," meaning to take different types of pictures of the same scene, especially a familiar or iconic one. I was much more comfortable taking pictures of the Louvre than I was the picknickers on the bridge over the Seine. The pyramid by I.M. Pei is a beautiful piece of architecture. I first went for the vertical, using a framing device, then the wide establishing shot with the dramatic clouds, and finally a reflection, an abstract showing enough of the pyramid and the contrasting facade of the Louvre to give a sense of place.
