A glimpse of light. Orléans, France, 2017.

A glimpse of light. Orléans, France, 2017. Get a print!

Having moved backed in France, it’s a new playground for me. I know Orléans, my home town, quite well, of course. But as my passion for photography has developed when I was abroad, it is the first time I roam in its street with the eye of a photographer. And trust me, it’s a beautiful city! It’s amazing to figure out how my perception of things has changed…

Orléans being a medieval city (you all know Joan of Arc, right ?), its historic center is a maze of narrow streets with old but tall houses close the ones to the others. And when the sun sets, it’s the occasion for its rays to light up those streets like they’re on fire, while others are in a deep shadow. A glimpse of light. This is the approach I’ve taken for my first photo in Orléans.

Get a print!

Back in my hometown: Orléans, France. It’s a peaceful little city not that far from Paris. The kind you of city where nothing really happens, but it’s still a pleasant place to live in. It gets a bit more active during the winter where the Christmas market opens at Martroi Square, next to Jeanne d’Arc statue. Small shops, fair and big ferris wheel also make their apparition!

Shot with a Fujifilm X100T and processed with Adobe Lightroom using Fuji’s Monochrome profile.
