Look around..turn around

I was admiring another beautiful sunset over the Hudson River,
and turned around to change lenses, when I sighted
the sun and the passerby's shadows playing together on a brick wall..
Sometimes it is worth looking in another direction..

J'admirais un des nombreux superbes couchers de soleil sur la riviere Hudson,
Quand en me retournant pour changer d'objectif sur mon appareil,
j'ai aperçu le jeu d'ombres entre les passants et le soleil sur ce mur de briques
Il est bon parfois de regarder dans une autre direction...

(Click on the picture to enlarge)
A very good Week end to everybody,
and a special "Bon Voyage" to Virginia who is leaving
for a Paris trip in 2 days...
La tour Eiffel vous fait un petit clin d'oeil!!!

Beautiful sunset M-N, you're absolutely spot-on with this one. And very cheeky of you to post the Eiffel Tower at night!

Katney November 14, 2008 at 1:41 AM  

Great images!

Jilly November 14, 2008 at 1:45 AM  

Oh you are so right. Look in another direction - such good advice. I love shadows and reflections and often miss them because I didn't turn around!

Your photographs are beautiful - and yes I echo Bon Voyage to Virginia.

superbe ombre orangée !

Virginia reviendra peut être pas les pilotes sont en grève

Love the one with the 3 figures! With the blue Eiffel tower pic, I'm
getting even more envious of you lucky people that are in Paris, have been recently, are going, ...
Have a great, relaxing weekend.

Tes deux premières photos me laissent baba o range et la dernière me file le blues.
Bon voyage à Virginia !

Les tons orangés te vont décidément bien! Ah, ce petit délice de la photo inattendue...

Tes "portraits" sont très chaleureux, beaucoup plus que la tour Eiffel avec sa lumière froide.

Daniel November 14, 2008 at 4:08 AM  

Un coucher de soleil en ville, très original surtout superbes....
Pour répondre à ta question j'ai rajouté deux liens sous ma vidéo...
Bonne journée...

Yes, sometimes things happen right beside us and our attention is focused on something else... But I guess you have noticied every one of them around you! :-) Great captures!

The shadow images are way more interesting than any sunset photo could've been. Bravo!

GMG November 14, 2008 at 5:11 PM  

Hi Marie-Noyale! Lovely shots! The moulles' restaurant is amazing; the Arcade solo is a great catch...
Giacometti and Bacon? Should fly to NYC... ;))
Meanwhile Blogtrotter is back to Greece in November 2007 waiting for your comments! Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

Peter November 14, 2008 at 5:18 PM  

Yes, sometimes you must look in other directions, for new horizons! ... and you even manage to look over the horizon... as far as to our blue Tower!

Karen November 14, 2008 at 6:06 PM  

Wonderfully mysterious photos. I like the colors.
Bon Voyage to Virginia.. Have a marvelous trip.. I'm right behind you.
30 more days...

Marguerite-Marie November 15, 2008 at 9:13 AM  

toujours aussi attentive à prndre la plus belle photo...

Thank you for your comment on my new Gateway Arch blog. I hope people enjoy it.

I used to hang out in Larchmont occasionally years ago. I went to high school at Fordham Prep in the Bronx and had several classmates from your town.

Regrettably, I've never visited your blog before. So many CDPBs and so much pulling on my time. Very impressive photography. The first photo today is striking and a bit scary.

I'm following Virginia's path to Paris in April and brushing up my French. It's the best photo op.

superbe tes photos avec les ombres (déjà ton saxophoniste était magnifique), tu joues bien avec les gens qui passent. On pourrait s'imaginer dans un théâtre d'ombres chinoises

Squirrel November 16, 2008 at 7:40 PM  

the first shadow looks like it would make you look twice. The photos are very warm and rich.

Tanya November 17, 2008 at 3:31 PM  

Very cool shadow pictures! And a beautiful photo of Paris :)

Chuck Pefley November 18, 2008 at 12:02 AM  

Oh yeah! Always know what's happening behind you when that great light is in front of you. Often even better when you turn around :)

Anonymous November 19, 2008 at 5:52 PM  

Great series!


PS: the Eiffel Tower is now blue again
