“The photo was taken close to the "Gare de Lyon" in Paris. It was midsummer, the sun was setting, and the light was very soft with a touch of orange. I was standing on the stairs that led to the station and noticed the shades of passengers on the wall. This wall had a faint blue color, which combined well with the orange light, and there were diverging structured lines that captured the shades in between. Almost immediately after I took out my camera, this woman with hat walked into my frame. I think the lines add to the sense of movement, and together with the shade and colors it results in a soft, romantic image that breathes summer and elegance.”
