Fashion shooting Place Vendôme


On the way back from the place where I took yesterday's picture the traffic was so bad that I had to go through the Place Vendôme (1st arrondissement) and I was lucky enough to come across this scene: a fashion shooting! I could not help hijacking it! I look forward to seeing the final photo in a magazine somewhere. Have a nice week and thank you again for all your nice messages.

  2. What a great find. I presume it means heaven and hell? I can tell you, it was so cold yesterday it was more like hell than heaven and in those dresses it must have been worse!

    Ma allora è proprio vero?
    L'inferno è nero e il paradiso bianco ????
    So it's true?
    The hell is black and the eaven is white ????

  13. Cubeland - It's the first thing I noticed too. Anyone in the US would get that immediately, it's dreadfully un-P.C... What the hell (indeed) where they thinking?

  14. The expression on the girls' face is not quite what you'd expect to see on the cover of Vogue, though :)

    Poor things, though, always shooting Summer dresses in Winter and Winter clothes in the Summer...

  15. Well, if you pay close attention, the white lady, who is dressed in black, holds the "inferno" sign.. Clever contrast with the black lady, who is in turn dressed in white and shows the direction of paradise.. downward! I always thought it was above our heads, but that's ok, I am ready to follow her.. :~)

    It's a fabulous shot. In my opinion, one of the very best of Paris Daily Photo. I love photos that tell a story. This one is a great one.

  16. Well, looking carefully at the picture, I would say the black girl dressed in white hold the paradiso sign. The white girl dressed in black hold the Inferno sign... Not obvious to me at first sight.
    (oh yes, ths picture does tell a story :)

  19. Eric, What a find. The ladies look as though they want their photographer to hurry up. Perhaps the magazine will want to buy your shot if they were not able to stage the one they wanted.

  20. The one on the left looks very cold.

  21. I didn't even notice the girls' skin colour, but did notice that colour of the dresses were applicable for heaven and hell.

    Another great shot Eric...and to quote Sex and the City, me likey!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm a little confused by the signs... looks like heaven and heaven to me! ;-)

    Anyway, it's great you managed to capture that scene!
