City Daily Photo Theme Day - Photograph of the Year


The first day of the month is always Theme Day for City Daily photobloggers around the world. January 1 is historically the time we choose our favorite photo of the year. I chose this shot taken at one of the entrances to the Louvre. Rim light is hard to catch and I especially liked the way it highlighted the two friends. I also liked the long shadows on the  cobblestones.

I encourage your to visit the CDP website HERE to see all the other favorites from around our world. If you are a photographer on any level, I encourage to consider joining this friendly community of photobloggers. I started with my Birmingham blog in 2008 and later added my Paris one. It's a great way to showcase your city or town no matter how large or small. The added plus is that it encourages you to get out in your community and shoot more!

Well, I'd say we're on the same page this Theme Day. Love your shot !

You described exactly what draws me to your photo, although you just taught me the term "rim light." I always love shadow shots and back-lighting. And of course, bicycles are a favorite subject. Another winner, I'd say. Happy shooting in 2018.

Rim shot is a new term to me. Like the light and dark composition.
