France 2012 / Post I

In June I had the opportunity to spend a couple of weeks in France. Unfortunately, I have not had the time to edit any photos until now. Part of me wants to be able to finish them right away but another part of me likes to have the emotional detachment of time before seeing the end result. I still take film in to be developed from years ago and sometimes don't even remember where it was taken. Hell, sometimes I'm convinced it is not even my film. Of course one month is not the equivalant of seven years, but it does give you some time to detach.

When Garry Winogrand died, they found more than 2,000 rolls of unprocessed film in his residents. Unfortunately, time comes between me and the shutter and me and my review due to work and other things going on in life. For Mr. Winogrand, it was because he was spending more time with the shutter and less with the processing.

Just something to think about.

That said, this is a shot I took of Khammany walking through the entrance of the Louvre. As we were walking in one cold morning, I fell back and grabbed a few shots.
