RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY
Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy sits on a bench with his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in Paris, in this March 23, 2014 file photo.

I was covering the first round of the French municipal elections in Paris and went to a local poll station in a school where Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy were due to cast their votes. Afterwards they exited through the courtyard to avoid the crowds outside and realising the door was shut, sat together on a bench while waiting for the concierge to fetch the key.

I had stayed behind in a school corridor to send out the photos I had just taken when I spotted the open door. I got inside the courtyard where there were two other photographers. Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla saw us, so I got only around 15 seconds to take their picture before their security staff stood in front of them.
