Sunny Day in Paris!


I know the photography rule about not taking photos in the harsh midday sun, but after I looked at this one a while, I rather liked the nice shadows that resulted. This sunny little table and chairs I found in le Marais. It was Bastille Day, and I had a wonderful time wandering from the Centre Pompidou, to le Marais and back. One of Paris' oldest areas, it is still one of my very favorite places to stroll, shop and take an incredible amount of photographs. I'm oh, so ready for another visit. Quelle surprise!

Ahhh, perfect photo and a good reason not to follow rules. I'm hoping for lots of sunny days in October.
I didn't lose my followers but checked the Daily Photo home page and there is no theme yet for October 1st and Eric's little logo is an X and says he's suspended.. huh? Didn't he start this? I think there are problems on the home site.

I can just feel the warmth radiating off this lovely photo. You're right -- great shadows! And always break the photo rules, as you never know when you might get a great shot like this!
