Paris by air

Such a beautiful sight … as the song goes (Tygers of Pan Tang, 1982). As I couldn’t fly, I went to the roofs of the Arab World Institute. January 2014

Notre Dame at night

Here is a classic night shot of Notre Dame de Paris taken in the end of March using the HDR (High Dynamic Range) technique. The shot is in fact the result of the superimposing of 3 different photos of the same scene using 3 different exposures [-2, +2 and 0]. The shot was performed on a very sturdy tripod and a remote so as to prevent the camera from moving. HDR is particularly impressive in night shots because it make near perfect exposure of all parts of the picture possible. Complete Exif data are available on my Picasa page.

who’s hearing that man’s prayer

Seen in front of Notre Dame last week-end, that man praying on his knees amongst a crowd of tourists who didn't seem to pay attention to anything (not even the cathedral by the way). Has anyone, but God maybe, listened to that man's prayer?
