Photographer's Note

A warm Tuesday in June draws to a close, and people begin to enjoy the late sunshine on the left bank of the Seine. I wonder if life could be better somewhere else, but I doubt it. Not at this moment. So I take some photos to remind me of the way the very long afternoons merge slowly into dusk and eventually night. Here, the sun is already low, its light casting long shadows and glancing off the inner wall of the bridge pylon. Yet it will be more than two hours before darkness comes. This view is from the Quai de la Tournelle, looking west towards Notre Dame and the Ile de la Cité. The strange looking 'clouds' on the right must be the vapour trails of aircraft, which I decided not to clone out.
