Road to World Cup

Mercredi, novembre 18th, 2009

I have receive a new camera today, the Leica M9. So from now on, most pictures will be taken with what has become the first full frame digital rangefinder. The first series of picture were taken tonight on Les Champs-Elysées were thousands converged to celebrate the qualifying of Algeria to the next football World Cup. Be it on top of cars or motorcycle, happiness and pride could be seen on all faces. Especially since a few minutes later, France also qualified against Ireland. As I write, a mixture of Algerian and France flags are still mixing up on the Champs-Elysées and the party will go on until the early hours of the morning (click on pictures to enlarge)
