Soccer – Paris

Posted on Jul 7, 2010 in The Photography

Seems like a good time to post this shot. Four years ago, I began to watch soccer during the world cup, mostly because the Mexican who owns the bodega where I get my breakfast every morning always had moved a t.v. out behind the counter, and since we had always been friendly, he began to […]

Cote d’Azur

Posted on Jul 6, 2010 in The Photography

Dipping into medium format scans now from my first trip, which was all shot with the Rollei TLR, i.e. one camera, one lens. We went through the famous spots along the cote d’Asur; and there were these windy narrow roads that would lead up to a bluff where you could park and overlook harbors, yachts […]

Pavillion Sully

Posted on Jul 6, 2010 in The Photography

I got the name from an engraving above a clock in the center of the building above the archway, that says: Pavillion Sully, but of course it must have a better name then that. I believe if you walked through the archway you came to the courtyard of the Louvre with the crazy glass pyramid. […]

Eiffel Tower in Puddle

A Tale of Two Closets

Posted on Jul 4, 2010 in The Photography

It was the best of times.  It was the worst of times.  That’s a good opening line for just about any story, so I thought I’d use it for:  A Tale of Two Closets. There are two closets in this studio apartment which is a fancy name for no-bedroom, stand-up only kitchen – apartment.  This […]

All Along the Seine

Posted on Jul 3, 2010 in The Photography

All along the Seine, as in All along the Watchtower, pops into my mind when I see this image. It just feels like a scene from the middle ages, and not the middle ages that I guess we had in the Americas. For me, the middle-ages still has iron rings jutting out from the stone […]

Duck Catching on the Seine

Posted on Jul 2, 2010 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 […]
