Voilà ce qui arrive quand, pour arrêter de fumer, on prend du chewing-gum en substitution.

Quelle opportunité de photo, Marie Noyale ! Noir + blanc = ballons nacrés. Superbe effet.

La photo est superbe, le seul truc c'est que moi ça me donne une envie irrésistible de sortir une petite aiguille, ni vu, ni connu !

Olivier March 12, 2009 at 3:49 AM  

"Noir + blanc = ballons nacrés" + le panneau "Lighting". C'est en effet une bonne manière d'être incognito ;o)) bien vu et belle photo

Elle est très belle cette photo en NB on dirait des perles de nacre.
J'espère qu'il ne s'embrouiile pas dans ses ballons.
Je suis en train de voir qu'Olivier dit la même chose que moi.
Cela droit être pratique pour y voir clair.

Much better than in color; lovely and lustrous.

Nazzareno March 12, 2009 at 5:07 AM  

la mode meilleure pour passer inaperçus, spécialement chez toi et de ton yeux photographique.

Cette photo est une splendeur! En grand sur un mur, de toute urgence!

hpy March 12, 2009 at 5:22 AM  

Il faut envoyer cette photo à un joaillier connu pour qu'il en prenne de la graine.

Rakesh Vanamali March 12, 2009 at 5:31 AM  

Wow! Awesome shot! Pearls indeed!

Jilly March 12, 2009 at 7:37 AM  

Oh how utterly fabulous! What a photograph - notice how the girl doesn't even look up at this spectacle walking past her!

Marie-Noyale March 12, 2009 at 7:59 AM  

>Yes Jilly that's exactly what I love about New York city!!
..You could be walking in your Pj's nobody would have that strange face looking at you..

Lowell March 12, 2009 at 8:47 AM  

Imaginative and creative. The balloons do look like pearls. I'm sure this is one of those photos that is much more effective in B&W than in color.

As you state above, this is also what I find so nice about NYC (and to some extent also Paris); you can be different without any big fuzz. The street life is fascinating! (... of course with your blogger eyes you would notice!)

tr3nta March 12, 2009 at 9:42 AM  

just beautiful the perfect shot, right place right moment, ready to shot.

Unknown March 12, 2009 at 9:48 AM  

Pearls indeed! What a fantastic capture! Love it!

You are right, M-N.! 'O crime do Padre Amaro' is a novel by Eça de Queiroz. And if you want to see the movie, try the mexican version which is far much better than the portuguese one! Lol!

Cezar and Léia March 12, 2009 at 10:34 AM  

Wonderful composition ! I love pictures like this one ( b & W ).

Marguerite-marie March 12, 2009 at 11:31 AM  

écoute Hélène (HPY) c'est trop beau ...tu es toujours là quand il faut.

Anonymous March 12, 2009 at 12:02 PM  

Oh! That is a post card! It should sell all over the world. I see a man on his way to woo a woman with these lustrous beauties. They look just like pearls. LOVE the shot.

Clueless in Boston March 12, 2009 at 3:22 PM  

Great catch. A few pearls like that and I'd retire.

Virginia March 12, 2009 at 4:34 PM  

I think that might be KenMac inside the bubbles. DId thatguy have a camera?HA

PJ March 12, 2009 at 5:46 PM  

The black and white was the perfect choice and I'm trying to guess what color the balloons were. It's amazing what colors that don't translate all that well into monochrome.
Do you ever shoot video, M-N?

Victor March 13, 2009 at 12:00 AM  

Well, this is an instant classic. The best photograph I've seen on the portal in ages. Just perfect. Nuff said.

Babzy.B March 13, 2009 at 4:29 AM  

cette photo est superbe ,le noir et blanc lui va si bien !

Bergson March 14, 2009 at 5:53 AM  

un noir et blanc splendide

Encore un qui bulle dans son travail

namaki March 14, 2009 at 8:33 PM  

le titre est pile poil !

gogouci March 15, 2009 at 1:54 PM  

Great shot. You have a knack for being in the right place at the right time and the sense to have a camera to take a picture.

Juergen Kuehn March 16, 2009 at 10:33 AM  

It's a great tricolor work in monochrome: black, white an silver!

Anonymous March 17, 2009 at 9:47 PM  

J'adore cette touche de surprise et de fantaisie!!!!!Merci

Squirrel March 26, 2009 at 2:59 PM  

This is SO WONDERFUL and lovely in BW .

Squirrel March 26, 2009 at 3:00 PM  

I love the bicycle wheels and the person at right who can appear to be simply one white shoe!

Squirrel March 26, 2009 at 3:01 PM  

It makes me want to sell balloons just so i can carry so many, to only be seen as legs.

Squirrel April 14, 2009 at 4:55 AM  

wanted to show this to someone else--- they love it too...

Il y a aussi..There is also...
