Cocktail in Le Palais de la découverte


Yesterday evening I attended the launch of a new search engine called Accoona. This launch took place in Le Palais de la Découverte, a huge palace off the Champs Elysées dedicated to science and technology (it's a great place for kids to learn about physics, nature, space...). I caught on "film" these two guests who were discussing by the main entrance door. I love the light.

  1. I love the picture!!! What a cool and original picture. Well done, buddy!

    I also adored the Palais de la Decouverte as a kid, so maybe that's why this picture talks to me a lot.

    Way back then, they had a display of a red and white water molecule the size of a small car that had really impressed my younger brother, too, at the time. So many cool stuff there.

    Who knew you could also have cocktails there...

  6. Lovely photo Eric, shadows and curves who doesn't like it!;)
    About Accoona, hahahahihi, i always laught when i see or ear this, i'm sure who proposed this name to the search engine doesn't speak a word of portuguese because this is very near of a slang word we use for vagina. It was a real party today on night news earing the journalist saying this on live! hehehe

  11. Eric,
    I love the shadows of the banners and of the glasses being held by the couple in conversation. Is that Emma Peel on the right? ;^0 Very remenicent of "The Avengers" program, somehow. Just a wonderful capture of this moment. Kudos!

  31. Well thanks everyone, I can tell you really liked this one! I have been lucky in fact, the sun did not stay there very long, I was on the first floor so I could really have a good point of view and these two people stayed there long enough for me to take a pic.

    Anyway, I am happy you enjoyed it.

    ;)
