Paris Plage 2


I promised I would show you other photos of Paris plage, so here is one. It was hard to take because I wanted to focus on the falling water (we call it a rain curtain) to obtain a depth effect and my camera kept refusing! Anyway, after several attempts and a journey into the menus of my new camera, I managed ;)

  1. Well, it's certainly an original shot and not easy to take, plus you have the sun coming towards you, so that adds a great deal of difficulty. Thanks for taking the time to think up something creative for us! :)

  5. After yesterday's post, I thought I might see a horse galloping down the boulevard. :-) As always, cool shot, Eric. BTW...are those sails in the background?

  6. Eric, I found the horseheads and I put them on Johnnysarc just for you. I don't know the purpose of the "raindrops" in today's photo on PdP.
    What are we trying to achieve? Enlighten me, please.

  7. Coltrain-I am sure they are just flags in the backround. The Bateau Mouche in and of itself would make it impossible to sail down the Seine.

  8. Yes the sails are just - huge - flags. Precisely to give the impression some sail boats are sailing the Seine...

    Johnny, I'm gonna check your photos right now. The purpose of the raindrops? Well, none, only to produce a nice photo...

  9. Stunning when enlarged. It looks like a painting.

    Possibly your best in my opinion.

  12. Well done on capturing the raindrops! My sister is a photography teacher and this is one of the types of things she assigns for her students. I think your background (Paris) is much better than anything they'd take here though (Richmond, VA)! :)

  13. You have succeeded in producing a fine photo. It's fun reading the camera manual to find out the correct settings or rather, so time-consuming.
    Now we can expect to see Monica in the rain curtain next week ?? And yes, one should always enlarge Eric's shots. I can see Michael and Lynn in the centre !

    … Is this irony ? I visited your site and was quite impressed. It seems indeed you are right in the middle of the flood. Glad your house was spared and I hope you don't drink to much beer/whisky due to the lack of water. (this is really silly of me!…)

  15. I wish i could get there to be in the frame, M. Benaut!

    gg: lol yes. I've seen so many of them recently. Thanks for going to my Cheltenham blog. You should have left your mark! Actually when we were moving food upstairs, ready to be flooded, i also took a bottle of wine... lol! Then i had second thoughts, realising that wasn't such a good idea - i don't normally drink much at all - i needed my wits about me if that were to happen! Thankfully, it did not.

  16. This photo is indeed very much like a Monet painting of the hotels on the Normandy coast. I like the exercise of capturing the rain drops.

    Spirit of Paris has a nice rain photo, also, rather film noir.

  17. Very beautiful photo!! I also lived in Paris for two years now, and I didn't enjoy as much as you seem to do... Dommage! :)

  18. Wow...amazing photo! I'd love to be able to take a photo like this (I've tried) but I don't think my camera can handle it...hmm. Time for an upgrade?
    You complain about the rain, and yet Paris is still beautiful, despite her grey shroud, no?
