A red zone address!

I'm sure you all played Monopoly at least once in your life. Like you probably know, the game is published in many languages and countries and of course, the city and street names are different according to each version. Not surprisingly, in France, the chosen city is... Paris

A couple of days ago I had a meeting at Avenue Henri Martin, which is one of the most expensive streets on the French Monopoly (a red zone!) and I could not help but remember my youth! And since the city sign is pretty cool too, I thought it would make a cool photo.

More light games...

It's probably because pretty soon there is not going to be any sun in Paris that I try to capture it as much as I can these days

I took this one on the Pont neufand waited patiently for someone to walk in front of my lens before shooting.

It's not so much for this famous metro station that I already featured several times that I'm posting this photo, but because of the extraordinary light that I was lucky enough to catch it in.

FYI this metro station is called theKiosque des noctambules(night birds kiosk) and its structure consists of two domes made of glass spheres (that obviously catch the light very well!). It was made by Jean-Michel Othoniel for the RATP (the French public transportation organization).

A bridge with a view...

I was desperately looking for a photo op last evening and I could not find any! I even thought of leaving a blank space for once... And then I passed by the Pont Alexandre III!

I know I probably posted this view a dozen times, but there is always a new angle, a different light or color! I don't think you can ever get tired of this view ;-) I'm sure this Neva river Nymph is not!
I'm often amazed to see how street artists manage to put their art up and high. In fact, for some of us, there seems to be this irrepressible need for expressing their mood and paint/stick it anywhere for everyone to see.

After all, is it that different from what the first cavemen used to do. Take the famous Grottes de Lascaux in the South of France, for instance, a stunning site that was discovered in the 40's (1940's) in which you can see paintings that were made about 18 000 years ago! Well, in 18 000 years, it's not unlikely that some people will talk about our mural paintings the same way...

Farewell Ferris Wheel...

Do you remember the couple of photosI took in the small amusement park inLes Tuilerie sgardens this summer? Well it's all gone now. And here is the proof! But what's left is not bad either...

First a beautiful perspective, then two interesting monuments; the white one is dedicated to Jules Ferry, a French politician who passed a law which made primary education in France free, non-clerical (secular) and mandatory and a sculpture by Antonin Carlès called "Retour de chasse" (back from the hunt).

Nuit Blanche 2013

2013年10月07日 15:58

Like every year (since 2002), it was La nuit blanche (white night) in Paris last night and like every year there were lots of interesting installations to see. I chose to go to La République,  where the whole place was totally covered in a thick mist...

The installations is called "Fog Square" and was made by Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya - who I really thank, because it allowed me to take a real cool photo!

Planet Paris!

I took this shot at La Villette, the huge park/exhibition area that is located in the North part of Paris and where they have a big dome called "La Géode" in which they show 360° movies. Well, as you can guess, the "planet" on the right in this photo is precisely a bit of La Géode. Cool effect, isn'

Electric car

It's been a long time since I've wanted to show you these odd little electric cars that have started invading Paris since last year, but I never managed to take a photo that I liked. Here is one!

Peaceful day at the Luxembourg gardens

2013年07月17日 16:15

This morning I happened to go  to the Luxembourg gardens. It is the second largest public park in Paris (22.5 hectares) and it was created in 1612 to surround the Luxembourg palace.

Last Sunday was Bastille Day (Le 14 juillet), the day we celebrate the French Revolution (which took place in 1789). The most symbolic event on that day is probably the huge military parade that passes down the Champs-Elysées from l'Arc de Triomphe to Place de la Concorde...
