From the Shadows to the Pyramid
Fuji x100f, 35mm, F/4, 1/100s, ISO 400
The old Louvres is a wonderful piece of architecture, and I was one of those who for a long time though the glass Pyramid was a mistake. But actually the contrast it creates is really interesting, and this is what I tried to show here.
Buddha in the Clouds
Fuji x100s, 50mm, f/11, 1/400s, ISO 200
This is another shot of the Buddha Dordenma in Thimpu, Bhutan. A truly impressive piece of architecture. One of the most surprising aspects to me was the notion that this would be built today. I can’t imagine a cathedral being built in France today in the style of the medieval cathedrals, yet this is, in essence, what it is. It’s one of those moments when I realize that spirituality truly means something else in Asia.

Film: Adox Color Implosion
This is one of those times when I really wish I’d had a « normal » film in the camera when I shot this. The grain and faded colors of the Adox Color Implosion don’t do this Cleveland scene justice, I think. But hey, what are you gonna do, that’s the charm of film…
This little sheet paper bear means a lot to me. It was a gift from my mother in law on my first christmas with my wife’s family. I also find it makes for an interesting photographic subject. This was one of my early attempts at still life photography.
