17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Classic Imagery in a Paris street café Entrance

I was looking for a typical French brasserie experience within a quick walk from the Eiffel Tower in Paris. At this location I was struck by the old-world look of the door frame and the style of the signage painted around the entrance. The cafe doors and signage were classic. The view through the glass doors reflected an atmosphere of depth, and mystery, surrounding the people seated inside; -this was enhanced by the red and spotted white glow of the lighting. It was a haunting imagery that begged the observer to walk inside and experience it first hand.
