Europe France Paris Travel

Tango Along the Seine

I could have chosen any of the 408 photographs I took during a twilight Bateaux Mouches cruise in Paris. They certainly would have portrayed the awe factor with flood-lit buildings, sharper images, better depth of field and true to life colour.

Yet I chose this true to life scene, a snippet of life in motion, when I spotted in the distance tango dancing couples along the shore of the Seine. Oblivious to the evening chill, onlookers and the mass of tourists on the boat catching a glimpse of their tempo, they didn’t miss a step.

Too far away to zoom in on the dancers. Too dark for a handheld DSLR even at 1600 ISO speed. Like life, an image doesn’t have to portray perfection to capture the essence of the moment.
