If you've followed my photographer for any length of time then you may have noticed something. I generally don't have people in my photos. Not if I can help it.

Saying that, I find that some of my best photos have a lone person in them. A couple can be nice, but I find to my eye, one is the magic number.

This shot was taken during a weekend visit to Paris with my friend Anna. She had gone off to sit in the park, probably bored of me waiting around waiting on the right light or angle. I wanted to see the Mona Lisa (unimpressive), but I was short of time, so I was power walking around France's most famous art museum.

I skidded to a halt (well, slowed down a little, I wasn't going that fast) when I saw this woman staring up at these massive framed paintings. I finally got around to processing it and, although it's not my usual type of photography, I quite like to branch out and try different styles. We shouldn't aim to pigeon-hole ourselves.
