Let’s see the ducks

juin 18th, 2011

If asked whether you want to go « see the ducks », well it means you’ll see the ducks by the River. No bad afterthoughts or weird French interpretation.  The pink slippers would worry me though. (click on picture to enlarge)

Moderating comments

juin 3rd, 2011

Due to constant spams attack, I have to resort to moderating the comments. I really hate to have to do it, but this is the only counter I found to stop spam. I wish spammers had a life, might them get lost.

Note that though I am now moderating comments, anything related to photography will be posted. Be it positive or negative, with no alteration on my side.

Thanks!

Paris Landscapes gallery

avril 28th, 2011

I have started the large task of organizing my archive of Paris pictures. Indeed, there are several hundreds pictures on this website (and thousands more in my computer), which makes it sometimes tough for readers or agencies to find shots corresponding to specific situations. I therefore decided to group my best shots in dedicated galleries and post them on my new website.

The first one of these galleries is made of landscapes / sceneries of Paris. I am not a landscape shooter yet I never skip on a good landscape opportunity, especially if there is somewhat of a street feel to hit. Some of the pictures in this gallery have been posted before, some have not, please click  or on the picture to discover it.
