Under the roofs of Paris

« As the moon rose over the Eiffel Tower on a late Summer night, I noticed a lamp lit up in the apartment across the street. Suddenly …. »

Wouldn’t that be a great start for a novel ? Love, adventure, drama …..  your choice. Yet « Under the roofs of Paris » would be its name.  (click on picture to enlarge)

    hey thanks all, indeed I am lucky to have quite a nice view from here, but I am still out in the street most of the time.

    Hi Lucy, too early to have a definitive idea on the lens. I like the size, it is very sharp, and it has the smoothest bokeh. Now the 60mm Hexanon has more character and is more versatile as it has two looks. The F1.2 and the rest.
    Will see, I have it for another 6 weeks then I have to decide whether I keep it (so does the person that has my 75 Cron…) ;)
