This has a quasi-surreal quality to it. I like it.

Is it snowing in the scene, or is much of the stone just wildly speckled in this image?

I see a couple of tourists still :p

The speckled-ness is a bit distracting, but I enjoy the composition.

The speckling (unfortunately )  is just dirt . from a hi rez scan ==from HP 5 film ---  Never saw that speckling in a print from the darkroom .. but a quality scanner > will show  all defects  Angry

I was chased out to the main street by the gendarme, shortly after   -- I guess tripods are not allowed ??

 In those days 1/30 was fast/normal shutter speed -- so tripods were a must.

I' m going to rewash a few times -- see if I can remove more speckles .. maybe use a more sophisticated tool > than cloning & clean this image up. It sold well in the galleries ... But I never printed past 11 inch ..

 Wish you would had been there with a DSLR -- ISO 100 --could had made a 20 X 24 enlargement

And I wish the film was speckle free Smiley  Scanned film just is not like a 24 meg full chip DSLR -- maybe more like  ISO 2000 with that digital camera and underexposed .  Noise = grain --- Sad

Still. I don't know. Do a 20x24 at a cheap lab, stand back a few feet...who knows? Might be worth trying anyway. I did not even notice the specks until you made me look. A little softness could go a long way, especially considering viewing distance.

I spent 3 months photographing in Paris with an 8x10,  and never had a problem.  You used to need a permit for a tripod anywhere,  but now there are only  problems with spaces like Pere Lachaise cemetery,  and the Luxembourg Gardens,  which belongs to the Senate,  and the guardiens are always on the watch for illegal photography.  A friend of mine spent months with a pinhole  camera,  sitting on a bench in the Luxembourg,  but they got him and he had a huge hassle publishing a little book of his wonderful pictures.http://www.lesphotographes.com/old-site/2011/09/19/the-photographic-processes-of-ian-paterson/ You would  have problems in the Palais Royal, where you photographed the Daniel Buren columns.  He owns a print of mine.  Small world.

C'est la loi.  There were no skateboards when the laws were written,  only tripods.
