Moulin Rouge, Menace Noire

Written Comments

This is the sort of shot that makes me wish I hadn't decided to make written (and now video) comments on all my photos for the greater of good of my egregious ego and photo-taking-kind in general.

Some photos just have to speak for themselves, and as a poet finds explaining their words with other words somewhat pointless, if not ridiculous, so I have problems conveying the emotions I'm trying to express in any other way than simply presenting the shot for your appraisal.

This often happens when I'm particularly pleased with a shot and I think words would spoil it, so I'll leave the image above as it is, untarnished by cold, clinical linguistic dissection and analysis. I don't feel particularly emotional about this picture, but as a classic shot of a famous landmark it's not bad.
