You can see bigger version of this portrait and exposure information here:
The word “Le Parigot” is a French slang expression for someone born in Paris, a Parisian another words. I hope I got that right and that it is a suitable title.
This movie like portrait of a man crossing a very busy Parisian street was taken near Notre Dame. It just happens that there is a big police station just behind the man and I was kindly asked to explain what I was photographing since I clearly was not photographing the cathedral. I’ve shown the policeman the photograph, he acknowledged it and just asked me not to take photos of the guards in front of the station.
