Hazy Days In...
... Northern Paris. Not some sleepy little hamlet lost in deepest Dordoyenne (never could spell that word - you know, the place the English have taken back...) but up in the 18th arrondissement just round the corner, literally, from the tourist-trap of Place du Tertre. Admittedly it's private property, but could easily be some sun-dappled country lane in some sleepy backwood somewhere.
I've added a sort of brightening up effect to give a highkey hazy kind of feeling which suits the dreamy character of the peaceful scene. We used to do that with a star filter or haze-adding device like smearing vaseline over the lens (or a piece of glass fitted over it, preferably). Imagine doing that these days!
