At the base of the sculpture is written 'A AVGVSTE COMTE' but I don't know if that's the subject or the author.
Anyway, it's in the square in front of the Sorbonne and must have seen countless studenty happenings over the years. I'm surprised it's in such good condition.
The technique I was trying out was a combination of over saturation, over contrast, over exposure and a slow shutter speed. WYSIWIG: What you see is what I got. I like the feel it gives.
And why not...
