This is one of the reasons why I love my Sony DSC-F707, I can take candied pictures of my friends. This one was taken by me while enjoying a drink in Paris with a very good friend of mine.
I never knew that the light at the top was more than one “torch”, until I snapped this one. There is four of them one on each corner. Does it still have the light on at night?
At a festival in France I found this lady playing with her fire poi. I think she was meditating while doing it. As her face was very still with the same expression. Only rocking forward and back while staring at a one point all the time.
I wonder if this was her zen moment.
Back in 2003 I took some photos for mirrorproject.com (which at moment of writing looks like it is down).
This photo didn’t pass the criteria “self portraits in reflective object” but I still like it after a little playing around with my photo editor.
If the site ever comes back up again I will post the link to my submissions there.
It is sad to see your neighbourhood falling apart, Urban decay, or an area just left to its own devices with people treating it with no respect. When you live in a big city like London, Paris or the like you often have areas that “time” has forgotten.
Though sometimes these areas do have a little bit of brightness. OK, it’s a bit hard to see what the silver lining in this picture is. But it is taken not far from the entrance to the catacombs in Paris, not the ones where you will get a guided tour.
What ever you say about the concrete jungle and cityscapes, there is beauty there. Just simple lines, symmetry, colour and the sheer scale of them. Makes concrete beautiful.
This was taken while walking around in Paris may years ago, honestly I can’t remember where. Though looking back at my old pictures I need to get out there to take some more photo of architecture and buildings.
Another from a snow day in Paris back in 2003. Bridge over the canal Saint Martin.
I was going through my old photos and found this on. It was taken back in ’03 when I was living in Paris. Like everyone else I was out there taking photos of Pairs under its 3″ cover of snow. Which of course melted while I was out there snapping away.
It just works so much better when it was converted into B&W.
