The Lost Generation
What do I do when I have a few hours off during a photo workshop? I still hang out with photographers! That’s exactly what I was doing yesterday morning after enjoying a café au lait with a friend at Place de La Contrescarpe on the first beautiful day of October. A few minutes later, serendipidy opened the door into Hemingway’s world. I walk by the famous writer’s apartment every day, often a few times a day. The door was open and, as photographers, we just can’t resist such an opportunity. We were invited into the building where Hemingway and Hadley lived when they first arrived in Paris in 1922. It is in this very building that the author discovered the style that characterizes him.
We grabbed a few hand held shots at high ISO, often as high as 6400. The pics didn’t really matter, it was all about the memorable experience of being there. I will never forget it!
Here are a few pics, I hope you enjoy them…
