Montparnasse, Paris, France.

Back from a rainy weekend at the French sea side ! I was sitting in the metro next to this old woman while she was carefully listening a man, apparently a friend. She didn't hear me taking her portrait, with the camera on my knees. I often use this technic because I like the angle it gives and it's more discreet, I'm not disturbing anyone since they don't know I'm shooting them. You can see other example here, here or here. Paris, France.

Elodie on the bridge near the BNF this afternoon. Paris, France

Lot of new things happened during the last two months; I moved to Paris (still looking for a none expensive and decent flat), I changed of school and right now doing an internship. Lets say those are the reasons why I was absent for almost 2 months. I don't even remember when I took this portrait. Because of the large amount of tourists in Paris, Parisians don't even care when someone takes a picture. Metro, Paris, France.

Not a so candid portrait of a young Hungarian girl in the bus between the center of Budapest and the airport. Incredible gaze ! Budapest, Hungary

What you are seeing is not snow but hailstone, the poor lady had pain to walk with her dog under the storm. If you want to see an incredible hail storm check this video.

Elodie aka Madame Catastrophe which means in french "Misses Desaster", we were on the deserted. By the way you may have noticed that I post less and less pictures and when I post I have to go in my archives. The lack of time du to my studies and parallel school projects are the different reasons. This do not mean that I'm abandoning photography, not at all. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to come here ;) Angers, France.

An other time a shot from my trip to Paris with Sayginou. We were at Pompidou and this place was full of life, actually it has always been full of life. Concerning the image, the little girl did something very funny but her mother considered it to be very bad...(she was making faces behind the window and behind a man who was reading a book on the other side of the window). Centre Pompidou, Paris, France.
