The apple that did not astonish Paris.

..

So I was sent to Paris during the glorious French winter of 2009 for a job training. Quit the previous one in September (they moved from center of the city to a ghetto in the outskirts (own space, but what do I care about that), thus my commute became sitting four goddam hours in a car from what was a fifteen-minutes stroll, and this became the mythical final straw that broke the camel's back), took a small break which now feels like a haze, and joined this new one in November. In no time my new employer figured out that I'm absolutely useless without some serious training, and thus I landed in their Paris office.

While in Paris, I managed to not to do much outside work, except for the obligatory tourist gig on a weekend. What follows is the result. Obviously there's much, much more I should have done other than staying curled up in the hotel room. But like always, there's a next time. There ought to be, and, note to self: when that occasion comes, dude, you better be the master of your own schedule.

Brilliant. I can't help avoid my brain from auto-loading of a few powerful pics of Mr.Henri Cartier Bressons.:)

Thank you! I'm inspired alright, but nothing I ever do will come anywhere close to what the masters have already done. No? :)

Hey, I am in Paris now. :)

Bonjour, then. :) Have a good time -- hope you're spending at a month, damn, at least three months there. Which is perhaps sufficient time to really "know" a place like Paris. Meeting new people, feeling the place, food, music, the vibe, and getting the hell out before it wears you out, and all that. Precisely what I could not do and wish I could do. :)
