Lost in the snow!


It was Monday yesterday and, as usual, I went to La Défense. I looked for photo opportunities as it had just stopped snowing and suddenly I saw this "lady in red" cross the snowy "field" between two paths. FYI, I took this photo from the office where I was, on the 33rd floor. Isn't IT cool?!

  3. I couldn't figure out what all the little black marks were till I blew it up. Then, I thought, they look like giant bird footprints! The photos come if you wait for them, don't they, Eric!? I love this - great job!!

    I ordered a large tote bag in black -- I think this photo looks awesome against black! I'll let you know the verdict when I get it. The small ones look like only the strap is black even though you have black checked off on the selction. Then when I clicked on the grocery bag icon, it looked totally different. So, I decided to wait and see how the big one looks. Thank you so, so much for making this available - its a Christmas present for......me!

  6. Yes, it absolutely is! (cool, that is) I too love the footprints around that lone woman clad in red. The first photo I ever posted on my blog was also taken looking down from the 33rd floor. What is it about the 33rd floor, eh??

  13. Tres cool! Henri Cartier-Bresson is not the only Frenchman able to find the "decisive moment".

  14. Although Eric saw this image in Paris it is a universal shot that might have been taken in any large city suffering from the snow this winter.
    What have we learned? To always look up and down!
    Sweet are the adversities of snow.

  20. Fantastic! Where other people would have seen just a person walking across the street, you see patterns. Love it! It would look good blown up for a wall.

  21. At first I couldn't figure out what this was. But when i enlarged it I could see how cool it is. It's a really great shot.

  22. Eric, a perfect color choice that woman made for her bundled walk across the snow... Great shot!

  23. Thanks everyone for the compliments. It doesn't quite match up to Stuart's success 2 days ago, but it really was a good photo opportunity.

    @Debs - how is the calendar and which one did you get (b+w or color)?

  24. I adore this ! The many footprints are awesome !!

  25. Oh, yeah! This is a great photo. Thanks for making my day.

  26. What a brilliant shot, Eric! I love it.

  27. It almost looks like a view under a microscope. I. too, had to blow it up to see that the marks were footprints! I like the splash of red AND the fact that you snapped this from the 33rd floor!

  28. Eric, I had to come back and see this again.

    Stuart's photo of the other day is classically beautiful, a grand shot. I will take nothing away from it.

    But I wouldn't compare this shot with that one. The two are so different.

    This one is completely unique, truly special. I keep coming back to look at it. I'd like to frame it and hang it on my wall. I'd like to frame them both. They are both perfect views of Paris.

  29. It is wonderful, Eric! Looks like a poster for a grand movie.
