Paris from the eyes of a Lumber Jerk III
- as requested a little photo safari from Paris.

Continued:


What can I say.


The lazy Paris.


Prayer.


More.


The shadow are sometimes the sharpest image…


Reaching.


Made of wood, and so amazing.


Who lives there?


Another hat…


Where are the sky?


Black bird.


Kisses (look carefully).


One of my favorite statues.


Notre Dame.


Blinded.


Orange.


Guess what?


Look out!


Also Paris.


Thats it.

The Paris tour stops here.
If you did not see the first of the III then here are the link: Paris photo safari I

Hope you enjoyed the second part,

Best thoughts,
Mads

Even more wonderful pictures. Kisses in the shadows? My eyes not so good any more I think. I thoroughly loved looking at your pictures. It’s great photography. Thanks

Well done, Mads! It makes me yearn to be there again, there is so much beauty, even Banksy’s graffiti at the top of this post which has been itself ‘grafitiized’ (by one of lesser artistic merits, I should add)....LOL

Thanks for posting these pics…. Think I’ll have to contemplate the arrangement of another trip there next Spring… though presently thinking of ‘Venice of the North’ (St. Petersburg, Russia) another incredibly beautiful city overflowing with fabulous art & architecture. Either way, Paris is on the agenda next year, sometime.

Great photography, by the way.

Mads- where IS the skyi in that photo? I think that is my favorite photo in this collection. Nice gargoyles though- and the flying buttresses are cool. And the concrete montage on the outside of the bulding with the 2 doors- is that paint or concrete dye I wonder? I love that! And the chairs facing each other? I kept wondering “what the heck?” low slanted chairs facing a high not slanting chair… leaves little to modesty.. if one is wearing a short skirt… then I am thinking maybe those are some kind of prayer kneelers? (I owe this thought only to the L/J guy who this week posted a photo of a bunch of those kneelers that he had made for a church) So in my life I have spent no time (as in zero time) in churches with prayer kneelers and have little experience to draw from—so I am guessing here.. are those slanty chairs for praying? Or for looking up my skirt- if I was thirty again that is… :)

Hi there,
Rick, yes his grafitti are so cool.
Rivergirl, yes it’s prayer kneelers (so do not worry), I’m a great beliver in life, so I go often to churces, they give me a feeling of something common, I’m not really a ‘beliver’ but I belive, so for me the churces in all the places I go are special. Yes I belive in love, call me a hippie.
It’s a brick house with the illustrations set in mortar, it’s really unique, I have seen it in Prag also.
David, so happy to bring you there.
Dennis, thank you a lot, and I can really imagine 22000 LJ in LJ t-shirts running arround in Paris, and me almost falling from my bicycle when I enter the center and see this!
PurpLev, mine are still all fresh, I’m back in CPH now.
Best thoughts to all of you,
Mads

You really have some lovely photos there, that doorway / window area- “who lives there” – is very intriguing.

Aurora, your French are better than mine… (I’m not there yet).
Theresa, yes that open window place talked to me, so I had to take a picture, I could almost strat writing a story of what happens there, so inspireing.
Thank you both,
Mads

You cause me to think again about coming to Europe. I have not been in 10 years. Perhaps next year is the time to plan it. I’ve not been to Paris, but you photography inspires me to want to go. Thank you for the tour through the eyes of an architect and thoughtful woodworker.
