The Boulangerie...a Hopper-esque photo with E-M5
3 months ago
As a long time admirer of Edward Hopper's paintings, I've wanted to compose a photo in the style of his most iconic work, Nighthawks. I produced this photo in Paris yesterday. I hope you like it.
Well taken, the picture is very good, and I like the mood. The bread there must be delicious.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Pure logic is the ruin of the spirit.
If plan A doesn't work, the alphabet has 25 more letters, keep calm.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
God is the tangential point between zero and infinity.

Lovely image. I had not heard of Edward Hopper earlier. The pic is a very nice homage to the Nighthawks painting.
So thanks for sharing the image and the introduction to Hopper!
As a long time admirer of Edward Hopper's paintings, ...
I just looked it up.
Hopper's painting is about four figures in a Cafe.
Yours is about some chairs outside.
Do it again.
I'm delighted to have introduced you to him. Though he lived until 1967, his style reminds me of the darker side of the 1920's. As I mentioned in a previous post, my favorite of his is "Gas".
Thanks for looking,
I like it, and can almost smell the bread baking. Crud, now I'm hungry.
(Am curious whether you bracketed and if so, how the alternative exposures might have looked.)

Thanks Steve, I'm glad you liked it. Actually, I had the idea some time ago..a boulangerie was a must... the first problem at hand was getting to Paris:-| The rest of the story (too long to tell here) was fraught with one stumbling block after another but I stuck to the plan and I was pleased that it turned out well.
