Nice thought. It is sure that graffiti will hold longer, Eric!
Very interesting shot, Eric! Love the bokeh you have going on there. :)
I like it, Eric! It must be windy, windy, windy there. It looks like the posters were ripped to shreds.Yesterday you said you were glad you posted this year's video right away. I was wondering -- last year I could never find the video and I didn't want to pester you about whether it was going to be posted. But, now I'm curious again -- was a video posted somewhere? I'd love to see it. : )
Has it really been five years?Not just the wind. Time rips all asunder as well. Well, maybe not at the moment, but given time...
Eric,What a great shot. When I"m in Paris I'm not so sure I find these kinds of things. I think I need to be more observant.V
I just walked in the door at home at 10:30 pm Tuesday (Minneapolis time). I feel like a zombie. Need sleep. I have not viewed the picnic video yet. Thanks again for the great people in Paris who made time to get together.
Ok, I confess that even though I am exhausted from twelve hours in airplanes with many many shrieking babies (l'enfants d'enfer), I stayed up and watched the picnic video. God, I can't even type.Really fun, Eric, great job!
Clearly, Eric has not lost his "eye"!
Talk about gone with the wind! How sad to be so misunderstood
This IS very Parisien, these grey and green "screens".I like the way the posters are shattered by the wind and I can imagine the view from this bridge.Jeff; good to hear that you are safe back home.
How not to think of this song 'Le vent nous portera' from the French band Noir Désir (the wind will carry us). A dark song though but it may suit well with this shot today. I'd rather watch again the video picnic to keep the sun coming as it must be :)
Eric, This is wonderful photo !I love the way the wind blew the posters..really nice !!
Ephemera on the breeze. Lovely blocks of color and focus/unfocus. Love it.Also love the PDP video so much I looked at it twice (hi Michael; yay, Guille made it after all!, Lynnie via phone, Rose in person, Jeff! Sab!, so many nice PDPers to "meet." I'm glad you all had a lovely time. Sorry for your weather woes. Very good to hear your voice, Eric. Thanks again for letting everyone who wished they could be there join you in conversation with your guests. Great fun!-Kim
What an interesting shot, Eric. Isn't it funny when you're thinking about photography every day, what new things you notice? I think you really capture some things about Paris that you would have never noticed before. Thanks!
From Cali - that's an amazing clip!! I loved it. I've never seen it before. I guess that makes being called a blowhard a compliment!! ;0)
I like how you put the focus on the man's face.
Wow, Cali, that clip was such a surprise! I didn't see it coming. Kind of poignant and lovely!
LOL, Carrie!Shell: I saw it on another blog! (Eric: don't hate me because I'm fickle!)
Is this a new bridge, Pont Saint-Germain? Pont Saint-Michel, I think you mean? Lovely photo though!
It's great to be with people who can help us succeed in life. Impressive indeed. thanks for sharing.
