In the past few years, I started collecting pictures of people taking selfies. I look for interesting characters or an interesting location (best if I get both). It's a life-long project, but I thought I could start sharing some results so far. I hope you enjoy them...
I noticed it's been 18 months since I posted my previous set of pictures. In case you wonder what happed, I became a father, and photography (in general, and this blog in particular) became less of a priority ;)
Work has brought me to Paris, once again. It has been years since my last visit, which was before the fire in Notre-Dame. I didn't go to Notre-Dame; I prefered to keep the good memories I have about walking on the river bank with my wife and admiring the cathedral in a winter afternoon. This time I was based in Montparnasse, the area elected by the city artists in the '20s as their new quarter, as it is much closer to the center than Montmartre. The city never disappoints, with its elegant boulevards, tasty restaurants (I tried Le Dôme) and chique Parisian people.
My hotel was only 15 minutes away form Tour Montparnasse. The panorama from the terrace on the 56th floor is nothing short of breathtaking. I suggest you go there at sunset and stay a little longer, until the city lights light up. You'll be treated with views like these:
The temperatures have plummeted into the minus 10 range and the lakes around Gothenburg have gone completely frozen. It was a good opportunity for a walk on a lake (as opposed to "around the lake") and some photographs. In particular, this is Sisjön, only 15 minutes away from my place.
The time for outdoor photography is becoming fewer and fewer (I wonder why!). But one late afternoon I had to go to Götaplatsen and decided to take my camera with me. I tried to find a novel composition for the famous statue of Poseidon, which is a well-photographed city landmark. In the distance, you can see the tower of Liseberg
