#10. Thames Barrier

By pascaljappy | News

  More London in B&W! Did I mention I love London ? 😉 Among other wonders, the Greenchain (a fabulous 50 mile walk through parklands and nature reserves) and Thames footpath (a trail/cycle route from far east right into the Southbank and London center) take you to amazing photographic sights such as the Thames barrier. […]

#9. Cyberdog

By pascaljappy | News , Opinion

Ami touriste, (1) Londres est la plus belle ville du monde (2) Camden est un paradis pour les photographes (3) Le temps britannique et l’architecture encouragent le noir et blanc 🙂 Cyberdog est un magasin visuellement incroyable. Les employĂ©s sont malheureusement aussi dĂ©plaisants que paranos (pour la petite histoire, Ă  l’occasion du London Street Photography […]

#8. Stairway to photo heaven

By pascaljappy | News

A look at Thomas Holtkötter’s incredible Caixa 1 staircase picture a couple of weeks ago set one of my goals for a UK vacation: try to approach this amazing simplicity and composition mastery on staircases myself. This one, shot a the Greenwich Astronomy Center pleases me. Less geometrical but almost as abstract and rich in […]

#6. Arriverderci

By pascaljappy | News

Hey, saucy! What is there to say? There was a croud standing on the other side of the peacock, all taking the same shot in very poor lighting. I chose this view that is more amusing, less clichĂ© and has a softer light. The picture was cropped to remove tourists and also to make it […]

#5. Bin that knife

By pascaljappy | News

Cette scĂšne se dĂ©roule Ă  Notting Hill, un des quartiers les plus recherchĂ©s de Londres. Mes images contiennent habituellement peu de personnages (sauf les portraits …) mais quand ce gars a dĂ©boulĂ©, je n’ai pas pu rĂ©sister. La poubelle prĂ©sentait dĂ©jĂ  beaucoup d’intĂ©rĂȘt par elle mĂȘme, mais quand un bonhomme en haut de forme s’est […]

#4. Supersonic underground

By pascaljappy | News

So. I’m in the underground in London and two ladies hop in, dressed in bright yellow. In front of me are other colourful shapes, a blue bag, the green railings, the flashing lights through the windows and on the ceiling. Setting my lens at F/22 gives me a 4 second exposure and this is the […]

#3. Mauve chandelier

By pascaljappy | News , Opinion

Ce fragile chandelier est le pistile et les Ă©tamines d’une grande mauve qui pousse au bord du chemin devant ma porte. Cette image est beaucoup plus belle en grande taille, n’hĂ©sitez pas Ă  cliquer dessus pour la voir dans les meilleures conditions. La partie centrale me fait penser Ă  un chandelier ou une dĂ©coration de […]

#2. Chinese Roses

By pascaljappy | News

Night frost on a wooden terrace produced these shapes that remind me of flowers and old Chinese paintings. They also bring back memories of a Cy Twobly exhbition held in Avignon in 2007 (“Blooming”) in which many paintings of Peonies elicited very mixed reactions from fellow visitors. Cy Twombly, by the way, is back in […]

#1. Giudecca, Venezia

By pascaljappy | Travel Photography

An oblique view of the Giudecca water front taken from the vaporetto on our way to visiting the 3 palladian churches of the area. The overcast day made the ochre colours stronger. A long lens was used to compress the perspective and highlight verticals, inspired by Viera da Silva paintings. Slightly under-exposed to give the […]
