Thursday Arch Series, French Division

.
Gateway Arch Shirt (Olivier)

A photoblogger's dinner in Paris a week ago. Cieldequimper of Versailes Daily Photo joined us. We brought some St. Louis souvenirs for our French associates. Above, le plus grand fan de mon blog (well, but then there is Virginia) our friend and colleague Olivier Perrin of Evry Daily Photo. Olivier received a prized Gateway Arch tee shirt and may now be the only person in the Île-de-France to wear such a treasure.

Below, Lucie of the Cergiepontin photoblog, Olivier and me earlier in the day at the opening of his photography show at the departement building of Essonne, the region that includes Evry. We were the first visitors. Photo courtesy of Mrs. C.

MON QUART D'HEURE DE GLOIRE, moi dans la serie sur la grande Arche, ma serie preferée du NET...C'est un grand honneur et merci a mes premiers visiteurs....YESSSSSSSSSSS

Yesssss indeed Olivier.
Ah mes amis, wonderful to see you all there !

Just like you Olivier, Bob's Thursday Arch is my favorite photo series in the blogosphere.

Bob, you never told me Mrs. C. could hold a camera too - thanks to her for providing that wonderful photo of three photographers I much admire.

I love the photo in the back with the child playing with water. I love it! I know Olivier returns to this fountain time and time again in summer and I never tire of his candid shots of kids having fun there

Nathalie said...

Translated for Olivier :
Ah oui, yesssssss ! Génial de te voir avec ce t-shirt :-)
Comme toi, l'arche du jeudi de Bob est ma série préférée dans la blogosphere.

Bob ne m'a pas dit que Mme C. savait elle aussi tenir un APN, j'adore cette photo de vous trois réunis, trois photographes que j'admire énormément.

J'adore la photo qu'on voit en arrière-plan dans l'expo, l'enfant qui se met sous le jet d'eau. Je sais que tu retournes souvent à cette fontaine en été et les photos que tu en tires sont toujours extraordinaires. La joie des enfants s'amusant avec l'eau, c'est une merveille !

BTW - cieldequimper remains as elusive as ever, eh?

I can't believe you found a way while in France to get a picture of your beloved arch on for today's post, you are a master Bob!! So nice to see Olivier, I'm a big fan of his blog too, was hoping to catch a glimpse of Ciel also, but as Nathalie states, 'ever elusive'!! Great post!

Marie said...

Congratulations, Olivier. This is a very nice (well-deserved) tribute to one of our best photobloggers and to a very good friend too. I will visit Bob's blog more often!

What a wonderful gathering, and a very clever way to continue your Thursday Arch series. I also was wondering how you would do that in the midst of your series from France.

Virginia said...

Yesssssssss! I must say it's so fun to see all of you together. I love a good blogorama! Olivier and Lucie, I hope to meet you in Paris one day and B....well we've been buds for three years now and we're STILL talking about a meet up. I"m headed to LA again in Oct. for a blog fest come on! The more the merrier!!


Olivier, félicitaions pour votre exposition!

Halcyon said...

Such fun! I wish someone would take a trip to Toronto. :)

Regina K said...

You are so creative with your arch series. I have been looking for photos of Cieldequimper.

Jilly said...

How lovely to meet Cieldequimper and Olivier (Olivier not thru a fisheye lens which is scary!) What a grand time you all had I know.

Kim said...

What a thrill to have such good photo friends come to the opening of his show. Olivier has been such a constant encouragement to me over the years, and I'm so glad you got to hang out. Ciel de Quimper visited Seattle and we got to go photowalking with together with Chuck. She's lovely. I will be in Paris the last weeks of October and hope to meet up with folks while I'm there. How many lenses did you pack, Bob? I've been debating taking one of my DSLRs or just packing a G12 or S95. I do a lot of walking and bicycling when I'm there, so I'm hesitant to bring a big rig. But part of me knows I'll wish I had brought at least one body and lens. Should I take two lenses. I just don't want to lug a lot of stuff. Your advice appreciated, oh globe trotting photo friend. :-).
