I love this intersection at St. Germain and rue Bonaparte with the city’s best known cafes in the background. Late one night, this woman rode by. She was fast, but my shutter was slow, producing the motion blur.
Perhaps, the man on the right wishes he had an aperitif instead of a coffee.
Le Bon Marché is the oldest and most famous department store in Paris. Although it’s no longer the place to see the best and latest fashions, visiting the store is still a fun, albeit often unaffordable experience.
I drove out to World’s End in Hingham last month, and while most of the leaves had fallen from the trees, a few still remained and produced some nice fall colors.
I can’t think of another race in which a participant would dress up as a ballerina or stop halfway through to message her friends on her BlackBerry. But this is San Francisco, and this is Bay to Breakers.

This man in a suit typed furiously on his BlackBerry while he sat at a red light near St. Germain. As the light turns to green, he places his phone back in his pocket before he pedals away.
I’m in the process of selling someone else’s 50mm Leica Summicron-R lens. However, I first decided to test it out on my Panasonic GF1. (I personally own a copy of this lens, but having another to sell inspired me to try it on the digital body.) It’s a 100mm equivalent on the 2x crop of the micro four thirds sensor, but it still renders colors and bokeh as a Leica lens should.
