January 21!


Today is January 21 and... it's my birthday. I already received a very nice gift from the Lonely Planet who selected 38 "Useful Blogs for Travelers" (you can download the guide here in PDF format but only in French). The authors of the guide (Christophe Corbet and Gayle Welburn) - whom I swear I don't know! - have been kind enough to include ParisDailyPhoto in it (together with Paris14info to represent France). I also thought it was the perfect day to show one of the window shops included in a very unique idea called 1001 listes located on rue de Richelieu. Its purpose is to organise under one roof an assortment of shops that provide ideas for gift lists for weddings, births and... birthdays. Who knows, I may drop off a list for ParisDailyPhoto's anniversary which is also coming up soon!

  4. Hi Eric! I like the strict and 'épuré' (is it French?!!) style of this. Very stylish..

    Bon birthday, by the way. You don't look a day over 75 ;-)

    When are you coming down to my photography evening at Shakespeare & Co. anyway?!!!

    We're waiting for you!!! Maybe you could give a presentation of your photos. YES!!! Great idea! But I'm going to Peru for a couple of weeks, so that might have to be for end Feb (or this Wednesday). I'd love it if you could!

  5. Bon anniversaire!

    Congratulations on the Lonely Planet recognition (I can only dream...)
    Have to be honest I came to your site via your post on someone else's where you picked up on the lightning/lighting faux pas. heh heh. Anyway, good site - I especially like the "back to normality" image of the runner speeding past the homeless fellas. Congratulations.

    I also started a blog geared to photographing Paris. Little pieces of advice.
    It is attached to my site a photographerinparis.com (opening page).
    Your blog is still my favorite, forget the lonely panet lists!
