It's been two weeks since my last post, and I did promise you more pix from Paris.
Above are two versions of the same shot. The top one is a "painted" photograph, texturized with French Kiss Textures, and the bottom one is simply a snapshot, processed in BW/sepia. I'm always amazed at how processing changes the personality of a photograph. Both have their charm, because, after all, both are taken in Paris!! Which one do you like better?
Meanwhile, I'm still basking in the glow of the Academy Awards. What with "Midnight in Paris", Hugo" and "L'Artist", I'm thinking that this year, Oscar was a little "French at Heart"!!
This Oscar winner isn't French, but it has some French in it and it certainly has a French sensibility. A friend sent it to me today, and I watched it at breakfast with two of my loved ones. You might do the same. [I'd suggest that you watch it full screen on Youtube, preferably with a little one on your lap.]
And speaking of French films, our most recent one last night was "Avenue Montaigne". I give it a 5!!
à bientôt, mes chers,
