Alone around 10 PM – Just me and this tempting French creperie

It is my favorite thing in the world to wander around foreign streets at night… all alone… just me and my iPod. I’m much too weak to avoid passing by these little creperies without stopping in for a fresh French pastry… I mean, who in their right mind could avoid that?

The River That Ran Through Lyon at Midnight

Daily Photo – The River That Ran Through Lyon at Midnight

I walked around Lyon at midnight with a Russian friend. We were so busy at the conference most of the time that the first chance we had to shoot together was when the streets were almost empty and the river was black.

He saw me walking with my camera attached to my tripod and the strap hanging down. He winced, saying he saw one of his friend’s cameras just drop off the head and crash to the ground. He forced me to wrap the strap around the tripod just in case… and I still do that to this day, thinking about is disapproving Russian scowl. I don’t need to see that it my mind’s eye…

Le Magic Horoscope

I was in the back alleys of Lyon, the old district, when this little fortune teller in a purple box appeared. The machine was making rather scary ambient droning sounds intermixed with a screeching mechanical whirring that rumbled from the inside. I was rather nervous while taking a shot of it, but I kept my wits about me then moved on.

The Grandeur of Notre Dame

This is the tiny little hillside chapel of Notre Dame de Lyon. It was a healthy walk to the top all by my lonesome with my tripod and ipod. It was once again one of those places where you are not supposed to use tripods. But I simply state that I am on a mission from God, and then they generally back off either in awe or confusion.

The Extravagance

The interior of the Notre Dame was vast, golden, and could not possibly fit through the eye of a needle.
