What is it that you want with your camera?


For the first time in my life (well, my father tells me he took me there when I was very little but I don't remember...) I went to the Salon de l'Agriculture (the International Agricultural Show) that takes place every year in Paris. It is often called "the largest farm in the world" for it uses up to 30 000 square meters (322 917 square feet) and shows absolutely everything that is farm related: animals, dairy products, fruit, etc. Just love it!

  2. I went there a few years ago. Had a wonderful time watching at these beautiful, huge, amazing animals, and needed a week diet after visiting the restaurants section ! Eric did you bring your Pepsi Diet can with you ?
    Wish I could do it again.

  5. Didn't one of the Salons de l'Agriculture involve - either last year or a few years ago - a French politician (can't remember which one) holding a farm animal who had an "accident" on him?

  6. > Nasty Elisabeth : I have no souvenir of such a nice story, but God knows I would have loved it ! I wonder which French politcian of today I would imagine in such a situation with the greatest pleasure !

  9. Cela me rappelle le plan sur lequel s'ouvrent les Temps Modernes de Charlie Chaplin, où l'on voit un mouton noir qui symbolisera Charlot lui-même dans le film dans le flot d'un troupeau de mouton blanc, puis un flot d'ouvriers sortant d'une bouche de métro. Au fond le plus inquiétant est que nous ne percevions que rarement que l'inquiétant se dissimule toujours dans l'apparence du banal.

  10. Reminds me of the State Fairs that we have here in the USA. Judging by the size it's about the same size as Virginia's fair. We took a group of students this year and had a wonderful time.

    Do you get to eat fried Oreos and funnel cakes as well? ;) (I find both revolting)

  14. Eric, do sheep and cat get along well? Funny that you have an animal shot too.

  15. Claude, I think that you should go to this show, just to see the difference between a cow and a sheep... :o)

  16. Buzzgirl: it's OK, we can see you were just in the mooooooood for a little fun.

  17. LOL Arnaud! But now I'm worried about the noises Tomate and Buzzgirl are making. They're usually a little more "sheepish" about these sorts of things, but we won't "lamb-ast" them for that.
