Sacre Coeur, again!


Last week PG Sittenfeld interviewed me for The Blog reader and wrote a really nice article about PDP. During the interview I told him I was trying to avoid taking photos of monuments that can be found in usual Paris guidebooks... And though, that is exactly what I am doing today (and what I did here, here and there!) Oh well, I said I was trying to, I didn't say I managed to! Have a super Sunday everybody (and PG, once again, thank you very much).

  5. Hi Eric!

    I enjoyed the interview (and the foxy photo that accompanied it.)

    I love the shadows in this photo - makes it look very mysterious.

  6. Great shot Eric and this is one of those PDP shots that make me want to jump on a plane to Paris. And that's a great interview too and a nice portrait there!

  7. This shot of Sacre Coeur reminds me of hand bells! It''s a lovely study in deep black, crisp white, shades of gray, and a little taupe. Loved reading the interview, too.

  10. It may be a momumnet typically found in guidebooks but it's hardly a typical photo. Truly great shot. I've seen Sacre Coeur many times...I don't think I've ever seen it look this pure and regal.

  12. Having never looked at a Paris guidebook, I love your monument photos and hope you will continue to post them! Not to mention, this is so artistic and I doubt we would find a great shot like this in a guidebook!

  13. I echo totally the comments of lisi & Nancee - hand-bells, surreal cake & bottles - it's a whole party in itself seen lit up at night like this. Good intereview & links too!

  14. Hey, Eric, you're even more famouse now!! Majestic photo of Sacre Cour, and great interview.

    I hope you're all not melting in Paris. It's hot hot hot here. But remember, global warming is a leftist myth! Oops, Homeland Security will be at my door soon...
