In the Paris Metro


Not much to say on today's photo, nothing to learn! I took it with my new camera, just to try it on my way home from work and I just love it. The blurry part, the metro arriving in the background, the colors...
PS : for those of you who want to know more about the PDP meeting in San Francisco, please visit this post in the forum. A big round of applause for BuzzGirl who organized everything. See you all on Sunday.

  1. Fun shot - I like how everything is blurred, including what the woman is holding in her hand - are they flowers?

  2. In that picture that car looks squeaky clean!

  3. Ahh, now this is getting towards some of the sort of pics I often take - blur, anonymity, a frozen moment - lovely!

    The metro is an endless source of inspiration, and it is such an integral part of the city that any shot with even a hint of it in oozes Parisian possibilities...

  4. I'd like to know what camera you've got now. You must have left work early, as it doesn't look a crowded platform.

  5. Thanks, Eric, you've inspired me to put a similarly spirited shot on my blog - what do you think? It's called 'Baguette Biker'.

  6. Moi aussi.

    What kind of new camera? We would all love to know.
    And with summer arriving, it's nice to see people in short sleeves.

  8. I, too, enjoy such photos. I have quite a number, but most of mine were not intended to be blurry! They just happened, and many of them may be better than if they were sharply focused. And, I confess, some are of pretty girls, with the rest of the world unfocused, as way my attention at the moment. Just like Paris Set Me Free's baguette madamoiselle. I love that photo. And I'm glad he lost only his camera in the assault! Be careful, monsieur.

  9. Yeah Jeff, just saw Sab's baguette photo and I had a good laugh when I read the caption. The photo is excellent too BTW.

    Gail's man, actually it was just before my departure so I left work rather late that is why the platform was rather empty.

    I have a Samsung Camero (which is actually a Pentax - K10D for those who care to know -). Pretty powerful camra actually with lots of new possibilities.

    Just have to learn how to master them, as Lionello kindly spotted it LOL.

  10. Blur is a beautiful beast, Jeff. Both that: beautiful and beastly! If it looks for an instant that a blurred photo should have been sharp and you're trying to pass it off as creative, you're done for! On the other hand, blur which was chosen as a creative option BEFORE taking the shot is something altogether different, and can be marvellous, turning a banal snap into a work of art. I try to kid people that I take shots of the latter type ;-)

    Looking forward to meeting up at last some day soon Eric - we can compare lenses and pixels like real geeks..!

  11. I love it and I consider it appealing just because a bit blurred !!!

  12. The thought behind your photos is always intriguing. I like it because of the questions the photo conjures. Baguette, fleurs? Who knows, but it's captivating, nonetheless to speculate. (BTW:if you saw my photos you'd think that this one was spectacular)

  13. (whistling!!!) powerful and still relatively compact little thingy!

    I found a pretty comprehensive review of your camera right here, Eric (although if you note, it was writtent in Dec. 2006, that means that all the prices are wrong by now, welcome to the world of electronics (sigh)!)
