One of my favorite photos is “Umbrella jump” by american photographer Elliott Erwitt. This picture was made in 1989 for the 100th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. The author, in his usual ironic manner, captured the poetic image of a rainy Paris, loving couple whose umbrellas breaks a gust of wind and the man jumping over a puddle (which is an allusion to a masterpiece by Henri Cartier-Bresson “Derriere la Gare Saint-Lazare“).
I would like to say thank you to Eric Kim. His blog, books, videos etc. gives me an inspiration to run my own website.
