Musée d’Orsay, October 2009
One of several big clocks at the Orsay (a former train station), this one is over the entrance.
I rediscovered this picture while looking back in my files for images relating to the Orsay’s new photo policy. This was shot in 2009. The museum now believes that allowing normal people to produce images like this is too disruptive, probably not dignified, and ultimately harms the museum.
The camera was a Leica M8, and the lens was the incredibly sharp Zeiss 25mm f/2.8. Shot at ISO 320 and 1/45 second exposure.
