Walk on the Paris bank


I have visitors from out of town at the moment, so I took them to my favorite spots today (Sunday). One of them being the Ile Saint Louis and Ile de la Cité. At the crossing between the two, I came across this funny scene (which will undoubtedly remind you of the photo I took 2 days ago...). The big photo in the background is, once again, one of the remains by Photographer JT from the Nuit Blanche (click here if you want the whole explaination again).

  1. Normally, I would say don't mess with the beauty of Paris, but I liked the eyes on the bridge and I love this. Enjoy your guests, Eric!

  2. What makes the two photos so similar is the lone person walking right in the middle. Your timing is spot on!

  3. I love it!!!
    At a first glance, I thought it was you Eric in the photo, walking !! It could have been (if your camera was in other hands of course)!!
    Good idea to associate the two photos (this one and the one from last Saturday).
    This one also reminds me of Starman's comment from yesterday : the normal size guy and the tiny woman ;) Here, it is the opposite (let's even say a giant woman and a little (big) man)!

  5. The man walking, and where you caught him just MAKES the whole composition!

  6. What's with the Lillip...arisians!!
    These little figures two days in a row - how amusing. : )

    But, taken individually, this photo is really fantastic, Eric. I bow to your ever more refined photographic skills. I think this is just beautiful and also that it could be used to spur an entire class in either photography or philosophy.

  9. And may I add that I'm thrilled to see "ample"thighs are being celebrated in Paris now. I guess it's safe for me to return!:)

  10. What a fantastic photo. I loved the one two days ago, and this one is even better. Nice to hear that Ile Saint Louis and Ile la Cite are both favorite place in your city. They are for me too. Last time I visited, I kept walking back to Ile Saint Louis and just walking around. I loved it there.

  13. An incredible picture.
    I first thought that it was the hand of God (kind of Michelangelo drawing) painted on the wall, with the bright light coming from the palm directly touching the man walking. But not, the bright light comes from the thigh. And the picture is far from being religious. Illusion! LOL.

  15. Oh! I hope this lasts a few more weeks! So cool to see in person because the size just looks massive....

  16. I'm really happy you liked this photo for I like it too ;) (I would not go as far as saying "incredible" like Guillemette! but it's a cool one).

  17. Well,I will add "incredible"...Wow..wow..wow!! I love this! Went to see "Paris" with Juliette Binoche yesterday so I am in a "why aren't I in Paris" sort of mood. The movie was a visual feast for lovers of Paris..just like PDP! ;-)

  18. Et encore Eric, "incredible" était un euphémisme! ;)

  20. Interesting to note that Leni Riefenstahl used images of the Satyr in the propaganda(ish) film 'Olympia'...
