My daughter's contribution

My daughter, Stéphanie, forwarded a few photos to me, taken last weekend.

These first ones are of two swans flying along the Seine River. Swans around Paris are in general domestic and not supposed to fly around. Are these wild or just making a tour?
She also walked along Rue des Rosiers. I feel that these photos of a charming old tailor add a lot of value to the street ... and to my recent post about this street.

Wow her photos are brilliant, well done to your daughter,,:-)

Well the weather's no better right here Peter. Later tonight in Birmingham?? LA NEIGE again! Of course I prefer la neige in Paris but ........ here I am! Quel dommage.

Stephanie, what wonderful monochrome photographs you have shared with us today. The swans are something I never thought I'd see in Paris, especially in flight. What a glorious sight! And your images of the tailor are lovely as well. Shooting through windows is so hard. I wish I could have a try at photographing him myself one day. Maybe I will be that lucky!

Peter, I think you'd better watch out. If Stephanie
decides to get her own blog, you might have some competition!! :) I hope we get treated to more of her photos in the future. I'm sure you'll press her into service when you want a little break! :)

Bon weekend mon ami!

Claudia said...

Wonderful photos! Well done, Stéphanie!

Ruth said...

Beautiful! I can never get birds in the frame. What a backdrop for their grace.

Adam said...

Great photos - I've never seen swans on the Seine in Paris before, but there's no reason why not after all!

Catherine said...

Stéphanie nous rappelle, à nous blogueurs, qu'il faut toujours nous déplacer avec notre APN.
Parce que des photos comme celles ci sont exceptionnelles, et des occasions pareilles uniques ! Encore faut-il qu'elles ressortent nettes comme celles ci, et là, il faut du talent. Donc, ne pas oublier non plus d'emporter son talent sous le bras.....
La série du tailleur, c'est "l'oeil" du sujet intéressant. A classer dans le talent.
Des photos que j'aime beaucoup.

What a wonderful sight to see swans in flight. Perhaps Stephanie will create a blog to showcase her photography.

Cezar and Léia said...

Great pictures, Stéphanie! Well done!

krystyna said...

The most beautiful pictures that I can viewed last days.. Your granddaughter knows what it is worth commemorating on the camera and knows how to do it. Fluttering couple of swans over the town are beautiful!
Soon you say about her - the student surpassed the master.

arabesque said...

wow, your daughter takes tres bonne fotos aussi, comme toi. ^0^
a moment like this is worth capturing! ^0^

Jilly said...

How wonderful to see these swans. I can see talent runs in the family, Peter. Please tell Stephanie well done!

Shionge said...

I can't see to see the photos Peter so I'll be back :"D

Harriet said...

Happy Valentine's Day, Peter!

Love the first photo with the beautiful capture of the rain on the sidewalk.

Stephanie's photos are splendid. Perhaps she will share other photos with us in the future...

Harriet said...

Should amend my comments, I see that the wet street is the result of SNOW. We had a little snow in Charleston, SC over the weekend. The best kind: here today, gone tomorrow. Today: il fait soleil!

James said...

Thank's for sharing your daughter's photos. They are very nice. I love the top one of the swans. Wow!

Peter said...

BLOGitse:

Anne:
She's doing fairly well I believe! :-)

Virginia:
No competition! I hope - and believe - that she will provide me with some more photos... especially after some kind comments here! :-)

Peter said...

Olivier:
Je vais transmettre! :-)

Claudia:
Thanks! I will transmit! :-)

Ruth:
To get them in the frame ... and in focus! Tough! :-)

Peter said...

Adam:
You can see some, but flying... :-)

Catherine:
Donc, elle a sans doute du talent (pour les photos - aussi!)! :-)

Rob:
Maybe. I doubt, but I will ask! :-)

Peter said...

Léia:
Thanks for her ... and hugs! :-)

Sonia:
One more compliment to transmit! :-)

Krystyna:
... and who is her master in photography? :-)

Peter said...

Arabesque:
Thanks!Compliments for both of us... and in French! ^O^ :-)

Jilly:
I will tell her! Or maybe I will ask her to have a look on my blog and she can read for herself? :-)

Shionge:
Hope it's a temporary problem! Welcome back! :-)

Peter said...

Harriet:
As already said, I guess she will provide me with some more photos now and then! :-)

Harriet bis:
The good kind of snow, at least in a city! :-)

James:
Good! :-)
