A few (more) frames from… Paris

On the Nikon F90X Pro…

As I was scanning the negatives for my last ‘A few frames from…’ post it dawned on me that most of my honeymoon images have never been more than contact printed! One thing is for certain, it’s far easier to showcase photos in the internet age than it was 17 years ago…

So here are a few more…

I love these art nouveau signs, designed by French architect Hector Guimard. The curved lamp posts are designed to resemble plant stems but to me always look alien, almost as if they’re going to suddenly bow down and bite an unsuspecting tourist!

This scene reminded me of the characters created to advertise the Renault Clio car in the UK during the 1990s (search YouTube for the videos) and was taken during one of our many ‘beer in a pavement café’ interludes.

Scanning these images is bringing back some very happy memories so expect some more in the next few days…
