A Different Perspective

Today 1st of September offers "perspective" as a theme for our monthly City Daily Photo challenge. Since fellow blogger Bob Crowe, the remarkable photographer behind St Louis Daily Photo, was in Avignon a couple of days ago, I thought I'd let him run the show. There he is happily clicking away from my rooftop terrace, offering you two different perspectives on Avignon, one looking north-west to the Popes Palace, one looking south over the old city rooftops. I really enjoyed meeting Bob and his best half, both of them are delightful.
To see more "perspective" shots from all around the world click here to view thumbnails for all participants.
And if you want to see an amazing number of perspectives on a single piece of architecture, see Bob's outstanding series on the St Louis Gateway Arch. To me it shows how a talented photographer can keep stretching himself further. Bob's been posting a new photo nearly every Thursday for over three years now and every time I think he's shown it all, he comes up with a new angle or perspective - just brilliant! Check out his Thursday Arch series here.

Ce 1er septembre, journée à thème, offre "perspective" comme sujet aux blogueurs du réseau City Daily Photo. Puisque j'ai eu la chance d'avoir ces jours-ci la visite de Bob Crowe, le talentueux photographe de St Louis Daily Photo, je lui offre le choix de la perspective depuis ma terrasse sur les toits : vers le nord-ouest et le Palais des Papes ou vers le sud avec les toits de la vieille ville. J'ai été enchantée de rencontrer Bob et sa femme, ils sont charmants tous les deux.
Pour voir comment le thème "perspective" a été traité ailleurs dans le monde cliquez ici pour voir les photos de tous les participants.

Et pour découvrir une incroyable variété de perspectives sur une unique pièce d'architecture, allez voir la série que Bob consacre à Gateway Arch, la très belle arche qui domine St Louis au bord du Mississipi. Tous les jeudis Bob ajoute une nouvelle photo et ça fait plus de trois ans que ça dure. A chaque fois que je me dis qu'il a vraiment tout montré, il trouve un nouvel angle, une nouvelle perspective. Pour moi c'est un exercice de créativité et de technique absolument fabuleux. Allez voir, c'est ici.

Super shots of Bob in Avignon. I agree with your comments, Nathalie, a fabulous photographer and that Arch series is amazing. I can see you enjoyed their delightful company as much as I did.

Bob a certainement pu photographier deux différentes perspectives d'Avignon, vues de ton balcon, et toi, il te reste deux perspectives de lui sur ton balcon. Je suis allée faire un tour sur son blog. Chapeau !

Beautiful shot of the shooter !

Bob Crowe said...

Nathalie - thank you for showing us your beautiful city, for your time and your gracious hospitality. We had a wonderful time and we certainly hope to return. The way you composed these shots, no one but you will recognize us when we come again.

Today is the big Franco-American photoblogger meetup in Paris. Lunch with Cergie and Peter, then down to Evry with Cergie to have a pre-opening look at Olivier's photography show. Finally, back to the city for dinner with Olivier, Cergie and Cieldequimper from Versailles. My right index finger is itchy.

Envie de dire quand même, encore des horizontales sauvages, des plages désertes, des cieux renversants... encore. Mais tout a une fin.

Great interpretation of the theme. Different angles, Color and monochrome. Different photographer. Julie and I enjoy comparing our very perspectives in photos we take of the same place.

I hope to meet Bob some day, as I am also an admirer of his skill and creativity. I feel like I know him through his blog, and he has stayed in our condo in Costa Rica, as have his daughter and son-in-law.

A chacun ses perspectives...
Peut-être verrons-nous un jour celles de Bob sur Avignon.

Superbes les déclinaisons sur l'Arche !

Hugo said...
