Nuclear rain


I always admire people who feel so strongly about their beliefs that they will do anything to alert the world. This is probably the case with this lady that I photographed yesterday morning on a rain-soaked Boulevard Saint Germain (6th arrondissement). She's an anti-nuke protester and the message on the banner shows a quote from the Advisory Opinion of the International Court of Justice of 8 July 1996. It's funny but I just found out Ham from LondonDailyPhoto has another group of strong believers on his side of the Channel.

  1. Eric, when I enlarged the photo (great view that way), I really noticed the FedEx van in the background. Do you think she has strong feelings about globalization as well? The street really looks slick as does her slicker (raincoat)!

  2. That really looks wet and chilly, reminds me of my other hometown, rain city Vancouver...;-)

  4. Great detail in your photo. In the background there is the FedEx truck as well as a Photo shop, a bar, a cafe, and a plus symbol outlined in green. Any idea what the plus symbol means?

  7. I love that shot, with the rain and everything!!! To me, it is quintessential Paris. Just add to it a Tobacco symbol sticking out of some place, a big red sign that says "metro," and a piece of the Eiffel Tower over the roof tops and you'd have Paris in your pocket! ;) (You can even see a Morris Column in the background!)

    This poor lady is going to need a very large bowl of hot soup when she gets home!

    Nice shot and good of you Eric to stop by and bring us the entire scene.

  8. It's funny Eric, I notice that everyone has avoided the whole nuclear comment. I thought when I saw this post it would be a quite heated one.

  9. Brrrr... I've watched weather forecast. 2 C deg. and rain in Paris. Keep warm and take care of yourself Eric! ;) Especially: be aware of nuclear rain...

  10. Michael: LOL, nope, won't touch that one with a 10-foot pole! :-)

    On the other hand, I love the picture, I really do. As far as I'm concerned, it's one of the 5 best ones I've seen on this blog.

  11. There seem to be no activism where I live (Romania), therefore I really admire this kind of people. Nice shot, as usual.
