Our first day and half in Paris were pretty damp, but lovely all the same. Click any of the pictures below to see them bigger.
We got home from Edinburgh on a Friday evening. Monday morning we set off for London and then on to Paris for a few days, where 25-years earlier we had celebrated our honeymoon.
Seen out a rainy window at Autograph, London. Below a version where I focussed past the glass at the wall opposite.
We did some more gallery-hopping a couple of Fridays ago and once again it was raining. The top image is at the same place as a similar image posted a week or two ago which we saw them erecting last time. It’s a billboard for Klarna, offering to let you stretch out your payments, the long orange stripe being a dachshund, more of a stretch as a metaphor than a series of extended payments to my mind.
Some vaguely impressionist images from back in July 2009.
another old photo from April, 2009
The frigid weather has meant going out a lot less and also the people one encounters when out are bundled up more (and likely wearing anti-Covid masks), meaning much less expressive. As a result, I’m out of new pictures again, so it’s back to the archives for now…
Taken in the summer of 2008 (and sorry about the copyright overlay) in a brief summer deluge of a shower, this has been one of my most popular images over the years.
It rained most of the way down to Ventnor and most of the next day, cleared a bit the next day, then started thundering in the evening. Lucky I booked 2 weeks of vacation this time.
Another over-processed jpeg from 2002.
Not a lot going on, so it’s back to the archives for more ancient goodness.
One of my most popular images, it’s sold at charity auctions and been written up in exhibition reviews. My daughter (standing, 2nd from left) and 2 of her friends in a sudden summer rainstorm in Riverside Park in July 2008, and a boy who was interested in the big girls’ conversation, ponder something on the tip of a finger while the parents took shelter under an overhang and I pulled out my long zoom.
Another one from the archives – January, 2009.
