I simply love the ANA cigar box purse advertisement that I shot in this courtyard in Paris.
It is hard to believe, but this photo wasn't actually part of the grand plan. I was on the lookout for the perfect ad campaign, of course, but at this moment, I was simply waiting for my lunch on the patio of The Hotel D'Aubbusson. When the first course arrived, I looked up and this is what I saw.
"Don't anybody touch anything," I pleaded, "I just need one second."
I picked up my camera and took this shot. My actual purse that day (love it!) is the star, complimented by the wooden planters, posh setting and oh-so-French beverages.
Sometimes, life is art.
