We were in Paris nearing the end of the epic Perrier shoot. I wanted to get a sunrise shot of the Seine. An hour or so before dawn we stopped at a working class café for a coffee. The smells were terrific, and the ‘clientele’ was as well. It was interesting to see Paris away from the cliches. After the coffee we drove down the Quai to get to the best location, Pont des Artes, for a view of the sunrise over Ile de la Cite. As we approached the bridge, Keith Jarrett’s KOLN CONCERT began to play on the radio.
I knew the day would be perfect.
