On the Besançon Streets
I spent my junior year in college in Besançon, France. Although an interest in photography was still years away, I was able to capture this timeless street scene: a nun crossing the narrow street to greet a friend.
While grainy, there are several elements of the photo that I like – the elevation of the narrow road, the cobbled sidewalk, the parked vehicles, the Jura mountains looming in the background, and the mystery of the habited nun greeting an unknown friend.
Photo taken on Rue de la Vieille Monnaie, circa 1980.
