Rue de Levis, Paris

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 3 February 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

For the first 3 days of this month I'm posting some B&W street photos in response to the Aminus3 theme organised by Damon Shreiber here's his request:

"I'd like you to spend 3 days posting your best street photography in black and white. Street photography is generally understood to include images taken (usually - though not necessarily - of people) in a candid public setting such as a sidewalk, often with a normal to wide angle lens.

So if you're interested, get out there and capture some decisive moments! If you are interested in participating, let me know through my contact link and I will add your name to the list when it's time."



This photo from the streets of Paris shows hot steamy food being sold in an open air street market in the Rue de Levis.

NIKON D40 1/640 second F/3.5 ISO 200 24 mm (35mm equiv.)
