Focal Length:24mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 500D

Whenever I see patterns around me, I cannot resist a quick snap.  This is taken inside the ascent of the Arc de Triomphe.  It was tricky trying to get this while leaning on the bannister for support and people walking past.

  1. Looks like a shell. Cool perspective.

  2. Thanks. It is so easy to miss these opportunities, and while slowing the foot traffic trying to get this shot I noticed others stop and look!

  3. Nice shot Erin. I imagine there was certain amount of danger taking the shot. You might get a job in the next James Bond movie or The Da vinci Code III.

    • Thanks… The only element of danger was keeping an eye on the other tourists traipsing down the staircase behind me and preventing them from knocking me while balancing my camera on the railing! I won’t tell you how many frames it took, until I got a break from people moving the railing! But then that is the land of photography – waiting for the perfect moment, or just depressing the shutter anyway because you’re sick of waiting! I did keep the other eye out for either Daniel or Tom.
