My camera seems to have become an extension of my amateur photographer eyes! All photos prior to 2007 are scanned and were taken with a Fuji camera.

J'avais une copine qui habitée par la. On allait souvent au grand cinéma qui est par la. C'est un très chouette quartier.

PS: Connais-tu Fontenay-le-Fleuris ? J'avais passée qq temps là-bas avec une famille d'accueil. Ma "mere" était le médecin du quartier.

That is just a perfect photo! The composition is wonderful, the light is awesome, the colors are so bright and the reflection is stunning.

This is lovely, too, but in an entirely different way - lots more of man and his makings present. Very nice photo.

Jolies façades on a du mal à se croire à Paris... Mais c'est vrai que le canal St Martin est vraiment un lieu un peu à part... Bon week-end à toi !

Those reflections are beautiful and their colours are so vibrant aswell.

I travelled this canal when in Paris in September 2008. I enjoyed the journey very much. You have captured the charm of the riverside very well. The working of the locks and the various tunnels was a terrific experience.

J'avais mal épelé, c'est Fontenay-le-Fleury. C'est juste a cote de Versailles. C'est drôle, j'ai passée un trimestre là-bas et je n'ai jamais mis un pied dans le château !

Excellent reflections and your Sunday bridges (especially the first shot) are lush.
