Paris Jogging at dawn


This is not an extraordinary photo, but I'm sure it'll please a lot of you... Why? Because it really is a very Parisian scene, with the typical street lamps in the background, the street plaque on the right, and of course the bouquinistes boxes on the left. I took this photo pretty early in the morning, that is why there is little traffic and an almost colorless light.

  3. The green shirt is a pop of color. Eric, since you say it was taken in early morning and with the shadows, you can almost feel that the sun would be coming out for another beautiful day in Paris.

    I think this picture is calendar worthy!

  7. I am returned to Paris. I feel the chill in the air, the offsetting sunshine. After a brisk stroll, a seat in the sun, a cafe au lait and Le Monde.

    Thank you for the journey.

  8. My family and I were walking on the above location on Bastille Day 2011 en route to the Tour Eiffel to watch the fireworks. It was very very crowded but what a beautiful night. Thanks for the picture Eric.

  12. I say if you absolutely must go jogging, it may as well be in Paris—where the light is sublime and Eric is there to take your picture!

  14. Not every image we capture has to be extraordinary. It records a moment in time of the location and sometimes it has a story to tell. It made me search on Google Maps where Place Justin Godart is and I still cannot find it! I also learnt that those were "bouquinistes boxes." Eric, you can take it one step further when you have the time, is to geotag your images and let us know their gps coordinates.
