Jeff - too far from Paris

Nice pics, Richard!

However, it would be nice if the clickable pics are larger so that we can see how much sharper your new camera is :)


NIce shots, but I think its the photographer, not the camera, that matters most! I used to stay in the 16th when I was a student...Rue Marietta Martin near metro LA Muette. I sublet one room in an apartment that some graduate sudents had rented from an elderly lady who lived in the other half. It was an odd situation, but it worked OK. There was a lovely bakery on the corner near the metro that was called La Flute Enchantee (Avenue Mozart, I think). It sold lovely breads and delicious little pastries. I has very little $$$ so pastries were a special treat. There was also an elegant cafe that sold oysters and mussels and great looking seafood displayed on ice outdoors. That was so far out of my reach that I only walked by and looked. I remember the light filtering through the trees on a sunny day made me think it all looked like a Renoir painting.


I LOVE, love, love these pictures! What a wonderful recommendation from your doctor! You've added one more place for my To Do List for the next trip. And that gift of pursuasion you have served you well with the concierge!!!

Amazing….I have never seen these….will have to find when I am in Paris next…..totally, Guimard…..even a whiplash on the blue porte!!!


Love the new camera! And especially love "this" Eye Prefer Paris blog spot dedicated to the genius of Hector Guimard - not too many people, certainly Americans, aware of this genius! Thank you for illumiating his artistry on your blog today!!!


Great photos!


What camera were you using before? Maybe it's the subject matter -- or what looks in some of the pix to be a brighter sunny day than can sometimes be usual in Paris in the summer -- but it looks like you have a lot more crispness in some of the shots, even zoomed in.
That said, I haven't seen a bad picture...that's due to your eye, not a particular camera.

Such great clarity, thank you so much...
I am a language teacher and such material is great for demonstrating cultural aspects.
I currently live in Oz, so finding gems like this is a great pleasure for me and others.
Thanks again
