Paris Street Fashion Stuff #1


“Ok Kool!”

I am really lucky to be living in one of the most beautiful districts in Paris, the 18th and I live right next to the Moulin de la Galette in Montmartre.  Took a walk the other day up to Place du Tertre and spotted this guy and said “Can I take your picture?” he said “What for?” I said for my Blog.  He said “Ok Kool!” You could almost predict what he would have said anyways. Ah…Paris in the Spring Time.

    Yes, it is Rue Norvins…Very Good! 🙂

  • I don’t believe the post-processing was meant to have any great importance here. Especially if it happens within few seconds time frame. You don’t want to spend an hour on pp. I think, it is more about the spontaneity of a moment. Like in ‘ah…..whatever’ just to convey the idea. To show that British vibe.

    Is it by any chance Rue Norvins?

    I like your blogs BTW. Cheers

    Nice look certainly Benjikan, it’s got a nice English vibe.

    But WTF with the post-processing of your picture ? It’s got all the bad gimmicks of present post-processing, like selective desaturation and an HDR vibe than doesn’t do you justice.

    Usually your post-processing “looks” original, even if dramatic. We all know you can better.
