Les petites et les grandes vertus :-))
Oops I commented in French and it's a wordplay implying morality.
La vertu n'est plus de ce monde, si on peut y passer à son aise, James...:)
That is a wonderful photo and I love love your banner.
That's a great photo & a wonderful little street. I really like the man walking his dog!
"Virtues street", hum, hum, How can I explain..The name comes from the ladies who were working there and were supposed not to have so much virtues..but a lot of charms to sell! Do you see what I mean?..There's a great book that you should read , "Connaissez-vous Paris?", by Raymond Queneau. You would find a lot of funny details of that kind..Pretty picture!
I think this is a great photo. I'd could spend days walking these, if I could find enough of them.
Nice street shot, like it.

A beautiful shot James. Gorgeous!

I love this glimpse into Paris life!
Oh, I just discovered Ostuni, Italy or the Puglia region. I know, I'm a late bloomer. Wow, it's gorgeous, I want to go. Have you been?
ahhhh this is beautiful...i think that little dog has spotted you!
Aahh... and I love discovering charming little rues like this anythere! Works in monochrome, James.
Fantastic with the man walking. Perfect in BW.
An interesting procession.
Ok, that's some fantastic work and you do what I can't....photograph a person without them looking up! Great job.So what happened with that motorcycle in the background? Did everyone jump out of the way in time?:-) David/ Houston B&W
splendid work with a wonderful impression of old Paris! Bisous - isabella
This is an excellent black and white photography.Regards!
The choice of black and white is perfect. I always love your street photography which is fearless, humane, and best of all, always tells a story. Love the setting of course!
Now this is real B&W photography James. Well done!
But did he have his pooper scooper with him ??? I hope so, as there are still too many people promenading their dogs in Paris who don't pick up after them... one must watch where one walks ! Great photo, though I guess the ladies who worked there long ago are no more... or are retired at any rate...
Another fine photo. I love the architecture, the damp in the street, and the different figures.
What a great photo. I love the man and his dog. :-)
It's a beautiful street scenery, I like specially the little dog!Léia
Nice street. Great shot as well.Cassy from Classical Guitar Lessons
Lightning Shots: I do similar to fireworks. ISO 100, relatively high Aperture, and bulb on a tripod. As it got darker I adjusted the aperture or ISO. I wanted to be able to keep the shutter open without overexposing, in order to 'wait' for the lightning. If it was too exposed you couldn't see the lightning. It was a pretty active lightning storm so I just used my widest angle and aimed at the ocean. I pressed the bulb and held til a decent exposure. Once I figured out about how long that was, I just kept doing it over and over. It was about 12 seconds each...sometimes I caught the lightning and sometimes I didn't. It is an exercise in patience. I threw away all the shots without lightning and ended up with about a dozen or so shots with lightning. Of course, once I packed up and moved on there was lighting everywhere!
Very nice James! I'll bet an ariel veiw of that area would look like a maze...
