Urban Angels waiting for a celestial taxi


Photo Information
Urban Angels waiting for a celestial taxi: Notre-Dame Cathedral, Paris


The patient and orderly,
the anxious and the calm,
the short and the tall,
the alone and the loved,
the alert and the distracted,
the early and the late...

... Urban Angels gather under a street light in the square of La Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, to wait for a celestial taxi to take them home after a hard day’s work.



Captured on a night walk along the banks of La Seine in April, 2011, during a holiday in France.

What a marvellous shot. So still and stagey.
Best wishes,

Just perfect. I like the way the people on the outer edges of the group are looking out of the frame, hoping for a taxi to show. I liked it in the competition, and I like it here.
I think you are farily new on this Forum Rhoufi, so welcome to the club. Where are you based?

Edit: Just seen your excellent website. I see you are in Oz. Your time in Paris was well spent with your camera.

Good street photography. I also like the way that the man on the right is looking in the oposite direction to the rest.
Friendly Regards

Brilliant street capture, atmospheric, artistic, attractive and all the other words I can think of that start with 'A'.
