Bon jour monsieur

It wasn't until I'd taken the photograph of this intriguingly simple portico just round the corner from Notre Dame that I noticed someone getting dressed beneath it. Another reminder of the enormous number of people sleeping rough in Paris. But also proof that what we do when we take a photograph is stop using our eyes.

It's what we don't see as we snap away that can often give the image resonance.
