Greetings from Paris. It's Friday, October 19 and time for our weekly Photo Blog. This week, we'll do just a regular photo blog with no particular specialty. I am proposing that today be an informal "black and white" day; if you have black and white photos please post them. Black and white is something that that interests me greatly, primarily because I can't do them very well. I shoot only in digital; but I'm trying to learn.
But please post your color photos also; don't feel restricted or limited in any way.
Post as many photos as you like; there are many of us here who appreciate them.
You can find the technical details for posting photos in Wednesday Photography Blog No.2
If you post a photo, please think to recommend this diary so that it can stay in a prominent position for a day or two to remind readers to look at our photos
I have rediscovered many photos on my hard drive that I took for several months last year with my Kodak Z650 before I received my Nikon D80 as a gift. So I'll post a few of them today.
I'll start off with a photo of a well known Place in Paris, which is hard to recognize from the photo, because it's usually filled with people. This photo was taken at 9:30 on a Sunday morning last November. afew will recognize it. In the spirit of this blog it mixes a bit of color on a black and white.
Update [2007-10-20 2:27:40 by LEP]: This photo is of the Place du Tertre, near the top of Montmartre. It is always filled with chairs and tables from the restaurants surrounding it and tourists walking around and artists trying to get a commission to draw your profile. To see it like this, in it's lovely self, you have to go very early in the morning. afew and I lived very close to here at earlier stages in our lives. I have posted my original color photo of the Place du Tertre at the end of the comments below.
