Monochrome Monday – Paris Las Vegas

I never noticed the statues with their names before ( Duquesne, Vauquelin, Duguesclin, and Suger) because I was always fixed on the tower itself and the French onion soup inside of the restaurant; very tasty.  This is an example of how an image can be captured differently based upon it’s point of view and angle 😉  The image was converted to black and white and I then added a deep blue photo filter to bring just a bit of the blue sky and clouds back.

(Suger was an abbot and patron of Gothic architecture.  Vauquelin was a chemist and pharmacist who discovered the elements chromium and beryllium.  Duquesne, I think that is if I picked the right one, was an admiral.  Duguesclin was a knight and military commander.)

    Yes, just the hint of coolness in the sky works here.

      Thanks. I didn’t like the pretty blue sky in monochrome so this did the trick.

    Cool – I’ve only seen it at night and was distracted by the millioons of other things to be distracted by. 😀
