Duck Catching on the Seine

Posted in The Photography

Which is one of the great things about traveling to a different culture. If you lived in Paris, this is a scene you might have walked by a thousand times. But for me, watching the ducks crawl up on the cobblestones by the Seine, and these kids on their way to school trying (and I […]

Walk in Rain

Posted in The Photography

Time to put Paris down for a few days, and get back to some work I need to finish for a client.  I did a tremendous amount of scanning, but don’t have time to work on the images now; besides, it feels like a good time to take a break from the glorious city.

Escalators – Paris

Posted in The Photography

It would be nice if I had the foggiest idea where this was taken, but I don’t. I’m sure one of my Francophiles will know. I figure it’s a major metro hub, but it could also be inside a museum. Anyway – I like it a lot and I would like to put it in […]

In the afternoon, you saw people walking around with fresh baguettes under their arms. Both men and women with […]

A Really Big Head

Definitely don’t know where this one was, but on one of the other negs. there’s a name of the church in the b.g. which I can’t quite make out yet.

Hell Fire – Belgium

Posted in The Photography

As I was removing dust from this shot for about half an hour, I began to wonder what it must be like to work on this sort of thing for months or years. And whether the sculptor believed in what he was doing or was just working on commission. Which lead me to wonder about […]
