Great idea on the visual play between the ice cream cone and the tower in the background.

Photographers Comment

Paul Borg Olivier, Valletta (MALTA). Leica M9P 35mm F2 Cron ASPH. LR. This photo was shot in August 2014 during a Leica Meet in Paris organised by The Leica Meet Facebook Group. I was inspired by the symbolism as much as the contrast between the ice cream and the Eiffel Tower. From a soft, melting every day snack/dessert to a firm and solid structure towering over the identity of France. The softness and simplicity, coupled with the strength and elegance of the tower attracted my eyes to capture a different perspective of "everyday Paris".
