Paris Photo Quiz 7 - 'Holey Stone'

Welcome to the great Paris Set Me Free ~ Paris Photo Quiz!
The idea is simple: I post a pic I took in Paris, and you have to try and guess what or who or where it is. OK? Let's go.
Quiz 7: Apart from the corny title I've given this photo there's an inscription which you may or may not be able to make out. But the story gets deeper and more curious than that. Some call it historic, others pretend there's more to it - something much more mysterious worthy of inclusion in the next Da Vinci Code..! (Well, they don't actually, but I'd like to think they do!)
Here's the video which gives you the answer to the Paris Set Me Free ~ Paris Photo Quiz 6, as well as some more discussion of the photo which is the subject of Quiz 7. Looking forward to hearing your ideas in the comments!


And feel free to comment even if someone has already guessed correctly - add more info, talk about similar places you know, share your little Paris stories or anecdotes... whatever - the more the merrier!

The answer and a new mystery pic in a few days!

_________________________________________
Paris Photo Quiz 6 - 'Jolly Good, Old Chap' ~ Answer

The shop is one of the best known specialist retailers in Paris, along with the likes of Gibert Jaune for books at St. Michel and the FNAC for everything music and leisure electronics. The name says it all: Au Vieux Campeur, and there are tons of these places scattered around the 5th arrondissement. The symbol is, well, an Old Camper, or rather hiker, with Father Christmas beard and Gandalf-type staff, happily tramping across the hills. The shops themselves, and there must be in between five and ten of them in varying shapes and sizes, all have their own sub-speciality, be it outdoor clothes, canoes, rock climbing or just good old camping. The street is rue des Anglais, which always pleases me when I see it written in one of those typical blue enamel Paris street signs. And to see this comical Mr. Bean or Basil Fawlty type character going past was too good to miss!

Click on the little pic on the right to go to the big version and the original quiz question on the blog.

Paris Street Photography Tutorials, Quizzes & Commentary

~ Today's Photo ~



Paris Photo Tutorials - 'London Calling'
Here I offer you a spontaneous discussion / analysis of a photo from both a technical and also a very human point of view. What I don't normally do is go into the nitty gritty of the settings used on the camara because for one thing I generally can't remember and can't be bothered finding out, and secondly, I firmly believe that great photos are made before the shutter button is pressed based on what is happening around the photographer at the time and how he reacts to it. All comments are very welcome.

Paris Photo Quiz 6 - 'Jolly Good, Old Chap'

Welcome to the great Paris Set Me Free ~ Paris Photo Quiz!
The idea is simple: I post a pic I took in Paris, and you have to try and guess what or who or where it is. OK? Let's go.

Quiz 6: There are three clues in this image which could help you guess where it is. and two of them go together, because the gentleman looks like he's trying to be what it says in the street sign, which I believe is just a little too little to read!
Then there's the shop sign, which is so famous in Paris that anyone who has been in this corner of the city can't fail to have noticed. So, do YOU know what the street is, and what the shop is as well?

And feel free to comment even if someone has already guessed correctly - add more info, talk about similar places you know, share your little Paris stories or anecdotes... whatever - the more the merrier!

The answer and a new mystery pic in a few days!

Paris Photo Quiz 5 - 'Serious Headache' ~ Answer

Well this poor chap has also featured in this recent posting, albeit peripherally. He's in a little garden next to the Place Dalida at Montmartre and his sad story, which I've already mentioned elsewhere, is that his preaching was rather unappreciated by the Romans, who proceded to decapitate him. So strong what his faith, however, that he just picked up his head and struggled north to the town of St.Denis, which gave him his posthumous name. Or was it the other way round? Well, rather him than me, in any case.
