Paris Tuileries gardens


I apologize for those of you who've already seen this photo on Facebook, but since everyone seemed to have liked it there, I though I would also post it here (for those of you who never visit Facebook!). I took it yesterday morning (Sunday), around 9:30 am at the Tuileries gardens. So much snow is really rare in Paris. FYI, this photo was originally taken in color of course. I like the black & white version because it gives it a little vintage flavor, but the color one has an interesting flavor to. So for once, I'll post two photos instead of one.

  5. like both photos....black and white one is vintage and the pop of green in the chairs in the second one adds to the winter wonderland feel.

    how much snow did you end up getting? I read the airport was closed.

  7. So thank you Eric for thinking about those who are not on Fecebook (yes we do exist somehow, and probably more even because of that).
    The color version is my favorite. The colors come out very nicely against the snow-white snow. It is a very well constructed picture, too. A great urban scene, quiet (each element does not interfere with the others).

  8. Wonderful photo -- I favor the B&W version, but the other also has its own feeling.

  10. First of all, bon anniversaire Eric! This 21st is your day.
    And thank you for this wonderful composition.
    Snow, two monuments in almost perfect superposition, a gorgeous place. The running character, what momentum! I hope she was well covered ; leather is perfect. What a beautiful Paris we can observe. I like the color personally as true.

  17. You spoiled us once again Eric; Everything is in the subtile note you get to all your photos. Joyeux anniversaire.
    Today is the second Presidential term for B. Obama. Pictures I saw on the TV screen while having lunch were pleasant. I like how love is felt between the Obama clan specially with his two daughters. Seemed really happy for their Dad.
    This confirms the 21st of January IS a big day! Well I don't mean anything on a political side as I don't know enough the US but Obama has a lot of charism and he (to me) walks into the posterity steps whatever will happen.

  18. Very nice (both in color and b&w!) I can't decide which I like better, so I like them both best. I think the one with color has hints of photographs of the 1940's and their color tones. It's just lovely no matter what.

  20. Another one who doesn't see facebook. Would have been sad to miss this sight of the Tuilleries gardens, so different to how I saw it!

  21. It's also Martin Luther King Day, Bérénice, so with the inauguration and Eric's birthday, January 21 is a major holiday in America!

  28. I can verify that in the winter of
    January, 1972, (yes ages ago)
    there was also that much snow
    in Paris because I was there
    for my first time.
