Sketch Me Paris
Place du Tertre is, perhaps, the eighth wonder of the world. Artists scribbling and enscribing away like there's no tomorrow... it's marvellous to behold, I assure you.
Personally, I've never had my portrait painted, and as I grow older, to be quite honest, I think that occurrence is becoming less and less likely. Maybe I don't want to see what I see in the mirror! Even if I have an entire section on my site devoted to self portraits! Weird.
This is a lovely shot of a girl having her portrait drawn under heavy incandescent (street) lights (which you may want to compensate for on your camera setting, but I don't).
I love the moment captured. This moment will never happen again. It's a beautiful soft look she's giving the artist or her family or the on-lookers... You can imagine what sort of person she is. And then there is the artist, present in two ways, by his hand and by his creation, immortalising this young girl by his craft.
Don't forget your camera!
