Photographing Paris...


I was in a pretty bad mood yesterday evening, so I took off and went for a ride in Paris! Of course I took my camera with me. When I crossed the Pont de la Concorde, I saw this guy, obviously waiting for a better sunset on the Seine. I simply saw a good occasion to take an interesting photo. Good timing...

  3. I love this photo. The colors, the Eiffel tower in the background.... gorgeous. I would also like it if I were there waiting for the sunset on the Seine. Sigh.... :)

  8. I think this is a great shot Eric. It says so much about those of us that visit Paris and just can't take enough photographs to feed our soul.

  17. Love it! Sublime light. Perfect composition - in other words, Eric, Paris Daily Photo! Amazing how photography can calm us down - I agree.

  19. Aw Eric I hope this day makes you feel a bit better. I find that a walk or a ride sometimes clears the head and if it does not resolve the problem at least it gives you some time away from it.
    Beautiful shot.

    Love

  20. I love this photo. I hope your day got better.

  21. This is glorious, Eric. I hope you felt a bit chirpier afterwards. Your photo has planted a big smile on me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love how the shape of the tripod is echoed by the tower. Or, maybe it's vice versa.

    Anyway, hope you are now in a GREAT mood! : )

    ReplyDelete
  23. Stunning, Eric! You have quite an eye!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Really great catch Eric. Let's just hope that your artistic abilities are not linked to you being in a bad mood :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Eric, I hope whatever had you in a bad mood is long gone. That sunset looks mighty nice to me and love the colors on the back canvas to your magnificent lady Ms. Eiffel

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lovely. Let the sun set on that bad mood. Dan and I say "hi!" - xo A

    ReplyDelete
  27. Lovely! I think you got a better picture than the other photographer by a mile! :)

    PS Hope you feel better too!

  28. Great pictures come about when you least expect it! Nice shot! Just the thought of Paris puts me in a good mood. I trust obtaining this good shot perked you right up!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great shot, Eric! You do it everytime!!

  30. I can't imagine you in a bad mood Eric, but sometimes life's a bitch.
    As your happiness is our number one priority, I had a quick look on the net and found '100 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU'RE UPSET.'
    So I have selected a few which you may wish to try:

    Dance in your pyjamas. (indoors only)

    Do the splits. (are you joking?)

    Call a friend and ask them if they want to have a slumber party. (be very careful which friend you call)

    Cover your entire body with cocoa butter and fall asleep (how?)

    Try break dancing. (you ARE joking)

    Leave the house wearing fabulous lingerie under a coat (note: if you are a man you may get accused of being a flasher: the world is cruel sometimes)

    Write the stuff you like about your body ON your body with a marker. (probably best not to use an indelible marker as the body shape may change over the years)

    Or instead, take a beautiful photo like this one.

  31. LOL Drummond! Be honest, you didn't find that on the web but on your "to do list"!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Michael, I copied them off your list.

    ReplyDelete
  33. UKLynn? UKLynn? Where are you when I need you? Wasn't it you that posted that list on Pinterest, pinned it, poked-it, perfected it?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I will only make one comment after LGreen Writer's one: "Anyway, hope you are now in a GREAT mood! : )"

    YES!!

    (OK, Drummond's list helped a lot of course... ) ;-))

  35. Your bad mood is our reward - merci!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Which of my boards are you referring to, Michael? ;) I have several and yes Paris is there!

    What a wonderful shot this, which is why it is worthy of Pinterest! ;D

  37. Drummond I love the 'dance in your pyjamas'. I have immediately donned them and am doing so right now. It's been a tough day.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's a wonderful photo! And Petrea's right -- calendar!

    I also like Drummond's good advice :-)

  39. Whoa. A very cool and unique perspective!
