This scarlet sentinel, along with two or three others, adorns a fire station facade in the 7th. I only discovered the existence of this place a few months ago whilst wandering aimlessly looking for photo ops. It has a pleasant red lantern adorned with the words Pompier which will be the subject of a future missive.

I like the way the flowers are precisely echoed by the shape of the bush, or is it the other way round? Red and green always go well together in any case.

A word about technique, or rather post-processing. I've fallen in lust with a particular app whose name I can't remember but which has a certain setting which, well, produces photos which look like these last ones I've been posting recently.

As ever, my aim is to produce images with a specific look and feel, which is like a kind of heightened reality, if you will. I don't want them to be totally realistic and with the plethora of effects available today it's easy to achieve this sort of result. The danger is always that you go over the top and the effect totally takes over from the image itself. But it's fun!

And why not...
