Paris is a busy, colorful city and most metro stops are bright primary colors, perhaps to liven a dark and dreary environment. My eyes grew used to this so when I came to this station where I was transferring to another line, I gazed across the platform when the train pulled way to see something quite unique. I blinked to make sure I was truly seeing the scene in front of me. Not only were the surroundings devoid of color, but the man was contrast to the woman in the Bon Marche Ad. She tempting him into looking at her and he focused on his book. Noticing the text ‘Roles’ printed on the wall above (by the lights), I gasped and reached for my camera. Hoping that I could capture this moment in time before the next train arrived and keep it as proof of serendipity. The art of observation is at the heart of street photography and what drives my heart when traveling.

*MetalPrint represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed. Framed Metal Prints are perfectly finished without glass, and delivered display-ready with hanging hardware attached.
