Underexposed












I thought I'd show you anyway the last photos I took with the Canon A-1. I won't use this camera any time again soon, but looking back at these photos, even though my first impression was a huge disappointment, I think these grey blue hues have a certain, involuntary, charm.

We are heading to Marseille tonight: yay!!!!!

A song for the travel :)

I love the ambiance in these photos, dark, but in a good way. The second one from the bottom looks like something from a dream...

Oh je les aime beaucoup.
De petits rayons de lumière,
qui leur donnent un air mystérieux.

The atmosphere is fantastic in these pics - like you were taking pictures at 4 in the morning while Paris was sleeping (although I know it was more like 4 in the afternoon...)
