The Shrubbery of Ni

I found what the knights wanted… Actually there was a sign there that said No Entry, but I ignored that because the flowers were too pretty not to capture with the Eiffel.

Power of God

I thought this was sort of an armageddon / apocalypse / revelations view of Notre Dame. I was lucky that day with the clouds that makes this place look more extreme… even though it is pretty extreme on its own anyway.

Evening in the Park

Here’s that tower thing that I can’t ever remember the name of… I asked a bunch of French people while I was there and they would just give me a blank stare, like they didn’t understand Esperanto.

Petit Palais near the Tuileries

Here is a non-HDR shot of the Petit Palais, which is not so petite, but it is moreso than the Grand Palais from across the street.

On the way to the Tuileries

Here is a map from Google maps about where I was… testing this thing out:

Angels Watching Over Paris

This photo came out surprisingly nicely. This was shot over the Seine as I was walking over towards the Eiffel Tower at sunset.

The Cannon was Aimed Vaguely Towards Germany

Here is the pinnacle of French military technology. This has been converted to a water cannon to hose down people that are protesting the inhumane 35-hour work week.

The cannon was vaguely aimed towards Germany

This is Classified

He would not tell me his name.

He would not tell me his dreams.

I found him at a pro-Hezbollah rally in Paris. I asked if I could take a photograph of his interesting face. He tapped his ear, looked sideways, and then said I could take his picture even though “you have the blue eyes.”

This Tower Thing

I found this weird tower thing in France… I had never heard of it but I decided to take a picture anyway.

The Silo

Notre Dame at Noon

I didn’t have my tripod this day in Paris, so I took a lot of handheld shots, most of which still turned out okay. I really tend to rely on my tripod now… sort of a crutch. Anyway, here is one of Notre Dame.

I found myself, quite by accident, in a Palastinian rally in Paris

This is Ahmed

This is Ahmed.

Ahmed’s dream is to see Israel wiped off the face of the map. With dark eyes, he stares out across a sea of men yelling “Praise Allah”.

Ahmed is currently attending a Hezbollah rally in Paris, holding a poster of a burned Palastinian child.

This comes from a series of portraits I have in a set over on Flickr:
