Paris - 2006

We went to Paris in december of 2006, many pictures were shot, but only a few made the cut =)

Censored...

Just not censored good enough, you can still see the pleasure part O.o! I have the uncensored picture somewhere too, but to be honest it didn't survive the workflow from shot to final image (it didn't survive my quality control), so I didn't bother putting it up. I'm sure other people have better shots of it.

Eight to One

This is the old station clock that used to be part of the train station d'Orsay, which is now the Musee d'Orsay. No need for EXIF data to tell at what time I shot it for this photograph....

Polar bear!

Also, cleverly hidden, a person of great engagement. But the main focus was the polar bear. mmm polar bears.

A view from the stairs

This picture underwent extensive editing to bring you nice parallel lines and a general nice photograph look.

Nike - no, not the brand name

You know, greek stuff... Shot at 300mm because there are about 50 people standing in front of it taking pictures too, but you can't see them because I took it from about 25 meters away. Hence the focal blur... again, no tripod.

Moo

I admire the people who put together the stuff in the louvre for their understanding of how to use hallway lighting and door frame framing. Point in case - a stairways down leading to a door panel with a bull's head highlighted. Ominous, but well executed.

The buttcrack de Venus de Milo

So many people take a picture of the Venus de Milo. How many shoot her buttcrack? For people unfamiliar with the actual statue, this is a composite piece, the actual figure and the robes being two different kinds of stone. This was a common trick to get different "textures" in statues such as these at the time.

I do apologise

This is a composite of two pictures, and I simply forgot to shoot it so that it would give those four corners too... silly me >.>

A croissant de plus bonheur avec les jeuyes des temps de croquette!

I know it looks like it's been photoshopped - I can assure you it has not been. Well, other than a resize and some such.

A mockup

A mock-up of the Notre Dame. I'd have taken a better picture if I had had more time, but I didn't. Most of the Notre Dame photographs failed due to poor lighting and a lack of tripods.

A view form the Sacré-Cœur

I didn't like the Sacré-Cœur as much as I thought I would, since I consider it not done from an architectural point of view. It hints at being quite spectacular if anyone ever bothers to finish it. Until then, it's just a building site without scaffolding
