Paris Quote #255

City of light

City of light

“An artist has no home in Europe except in Paris.”

FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE

The Notre Dame cathedral is one of the many famous landmarks of Paris. She is a magnificent example of gothic architecture. I spent some time on the bridge taking in this unforgettable view. And I know, she had been photographed zillion times, but who cares, this is my shot. 🙂

New York Vitality Aphorism #65 NYC/2

“New York has a trip-hammer vitality which drives you insane with restlessness if you have no inner stabilizer.”

HENRY MILLER

Second capture in a series of urban exploration of NYC. I guess the city looks better at night when you don’t see the grey concrete, the muted, dull colors and the dirt all over. The neon light provides an artificial glitter. Still, NYC is vibrating, pulsating and is very much alive. This is the city of extremes after all.

“To me a great picture has three components. It has to have nice light. It must have good composition with a background  that doesn’t fight with the main subject. And it must capture a moment, which could be an emotion or something that jumps out of the scene.”

Joel Sartore

I like it. Looks very well said. To me the third component looks to be the most elusive. You must be very lucky to capture that moment…Any comments?
