The music box marionnette

A girl is busy hanging decoration on the window display of a store in Montmartre. For a moment, I almost thought she was a marionette whose movements were activated by the hands of her colleague.  (click on picture to enlarge)

    Yanidel’s photos would not be the same without Yanidel’s stories. Fun and entertaining.

    agreed @ daniel

    Yanidel, whats the diff (besides price:p ) between ur nokton and summilux 35mm lenses? I see you interchange them every now and again…

    Daniel and Ori, thanks, though some say pictures should be self-explanatory, I like to present my interpretation, though often fictious ;)

    Concerning the Nokton, I had it only for a weekend when a friend visited. It is a fine lens yet the 35mm Lux is much sharper (especially in the corners), more contrasty and has more clarity. Bokeh is smoother too though I also liked the Nokton’s. Good think about the Nokton is its size and handling.
