Sotto Sopra


With this photo, I feel like I'm going back in time; this is the typical type of shot I would post when I started PDP! (Remember this one?). I found these chairs at Sotto Sopra, an Italian restaurant located at 74, rue des Archives, in the Marais. Nothing extraordinary, expect that I loved their color and the way they are set on the sidewalk. BTW, if you happen to visit the Salon de la photo in Paris, I'll be talking about PDP -and its secrets! - on Sunday October 9 at 16:00 pm at stand E15, from l'Agora du Net.

  1. Just lovely. The contrast of the orange chairs against the white stone is great. Also the little shot of yellow on the right. A bowl of lemons? Flowers?

  2. Well, it is a great shot and I know that you were "in the street" to get that Tenin angle. A shot in the busy Marais, but with no people, pets, or trash... wonderful!

    Bises,

  3. Extraordinary color and composition. Ah, I wish I could be in Paris on October 9 for the revelation of PDP secrets.

  4. Very cool shot. With this composition, I could easily see this picture in a book of photos of Paris! Something like Cartier-Bresson maybe...

  5. A someone with a penchant for photographing empty chairs, I like this shot very much. I want to be sitting in one of them right now, sipping on something cool and intoxicating. ... Also, like everyone else, I'm disappointed I can't be there on October 9th. for your talk about PDP. Bon chance!

  13. Eric, will your discussion/presentation be videotaped? Perhaps you could post it, or some of it, here. It would be nice to see it!

  15. This is a great composition, Eric! (And you know I'm a big fan of the angle.) Was thinking what Petrea just said: any chance your talk will be recorded?

  17. @Petrea. Well, I don't think it will be taped, but maybe. I'll ask.

  18. I don't know yet if I'll be able to come and hear you, Eric, on the 9th of october! But I'm always interested in listening to you, specially if PDP secrets are involved, you can be sure of that!! But I also think you may need totally freedom of speech, don't you ;-) ?!

  19. My favorite previous photos were a colorful one of shoe like things I think from a flea market, and the dog poo on the sidewalk. Thank you for reminding me of your previous works.
