After attending the must-see David Altmejd exhibit at the Musee d’Art Moderne last week, it was twilight time. There was a coral and purple hue from the sunset, bathing the Eiffel Tower in a stunning light. As it got dark I started to take photos of the grillwork on various buildings in the area of the museum, which is the 16th arr. Most of the buildings are luxury Haussmannian apartment buildings from the late 1800s/early 1900s and have the grand architectural details I favor. I also shot photos of the frosted glass windows with wrought iron detail and the light streaming through in an abstract way. I used my new Sony 6000 Hybrid camera. What do you think?
