Shooting with a 50mm lens forces you to get close to your subject, maybe too close at times… After enjoying a drink on the terrace of the ‘Georges’ restaurant which is located on top of Baubourg (aka. Centre Georges Pompidou) in Paris, I stumbled upon a mime and couldn’t resist a quick snapshot. After all this is Paris and, sooner or later, you will run into a mime… Well, this one didn’t want to let me go and invited me ‘on stage’ in front of a large crowd. Being a good sport, I played along for a minute or so, and finally convinced him to release me. I’m a photographer, not a performer 😉

  1. Haha that is great Valerie. Sometimes us photographers have to play performer to loosen up the subject! Turn about is fair play. Glad he did finally release you! 🙂 We would miss seeing your future photos if you were only a mime!!
