1 million visits, thank you!

Sometimes this week, this blog reached the count of 1 million unique visits and is now running at a daily rate of about 4’000 visits. I’d like therefore to thank all of you that have been following this blog, I am very honoured and happy to see all that interest in street photography and Paris. Also a special thanks to the many that have commented, sent me emails and to all the great people that I have met in person. It has been a great learning and human experience for me.

It does not stop here but I take this opportunity to announce that we will be leaving Paris by the end of the year. Time for new horizons and for new adventures : 80 weeks around the world !  I plan to maintain this blog and its one picture a day routine, but more to come on this exciting trip soon ….

Meanwhile, time to get ready and buy a backpack as the sun sets on my Paris years ….  (click on picture to enlarge)

    Hey! Congratulations!
    Your vision definitely deserves to be spread out!!!!!
    I keep on following you since more than one year, there is always a good surprise when we stop by ;-)
    Bravo pour ton travail remarquable. Si loin, je suis nostalgique de Paris, de tout ce qui s’en dégage, ce je-ne-sais-quoi… et que tu captures si bien !
    A très bientôt
    A quand un voyage en Inde mon ami ?????

    Loulou

  21. Wow, that’s amazing! Lol, my blog has just hit 100 visits!

    Look forward to see what lies ahead for you!!

  22. Yanidel, this is great news. Congrats to your blog that I enjoy reading again and again. Your style of pictures is appealing, and your comments and hints are open minded and helpful! I would love to be privileged to follow your blog with regularly updates on your trip. You might consider to do books (e.g. via Blurb). If you price them in a way you can do some money on the side with the book sales, you have another good reason to share your photos with us :-)
    Safe travels,
    Carsten

    Thank you Carsten for the advices. If it is to happen (books), won’t be until next years, I am too busy shooting in the street before I leave Paris ;) I plan for the blog to keep on its daily posts, though it might be challenging at times.
