4 Million Followers on Pinterest and the Paris Opera House

Thanks Pinterest Ladies!

I think it’s like 80% female on Pinterest, yes? I’ve never been so popular with girls! Believe me… in high-school… it was rather slow… and not just because I went to an all-boy Catholic Jesuit school!

I’ve released many more photos recently on Pinterest to celebrate the event. You can see them on My Pinterest Page of recent pins. Enjoy, and thanks for following!

Pinterest Show with Kalebra Kelby

Kalebra has a fun show she does about Pinterest. I joined her this week… embedding here because it is fitting for the subject matter! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Paris Opera

I went by this building several times before I even thought about going in. For some reason, it never occurred to me that I might actually be able to go inside and take photos! Of course, I really wanted to go inside, so I was happy when Curtis told me that it’s no problem to get in there.

Next time, I think I’d like to go on a private tour and get some special angles and whatnot. I did get in trouble for using my tripod, but not bad trouble. Just a little trouble. A little trouble ain’t so bad…

    Very impressive Trey! I had no idea Pinterest was that active in general.

  • Casper van Zyl

    what a wonderful Opera House. You should have laid down in the middle and shot upward,maybe next time!

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks! 🙂

  • natemann

    Great shot. Is this with a fisheye, or is everything naturally curved?

  • Ow, this is wonderful. You mean you can just enter the building like that?

  • Beautiful photo, Trey!! Thanks for sharing, have a great day!!!

  • Spectacular color Trey!!!! Whats the settings and processing used. You get the shots the rest of us aspire to.

  • Daniel Hieronymus

    Trey, Do you usually set up the tripod and hope it’s OK or ask permission first?

  • Trey Ratcliff


  • Trey Ratcliff

    I NEVER ask permission… that’s the kiss of No death! hehe

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Well I had to pay for a ticket, but that was only about 20 euros I think

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Fisheye here for sure

  • David_Hendershot

    This is Super nice Trey. I was able to use the Tripod the same day and was not bothered (not sure how that happened).

  • Why are people so adverse to tripods? I was told off for using one taking a shot on the NYC High Line. Is it because they don’t want you to stop the flow of foot-traffic or do they think it’s a danger? People will take photos regardless… Tripods only help make a better photo!

  • Great photo! And you’re right, a private tour would be awesome.

  • Steve Oldham

    I never thought for a second I might be able to go inside. I just assumed it was like a regular theatre, so closed when there’s no performance on. Ended up with the standard shot from outside and nothing else.

    Great image!
