    I finally had time to develop a few more photos from my Paris archives ... and to try something new! Generally my photostream features straight photography, but looking through my images I found some that -- usually because of a flat looking sky -- didn't quite speak to me so I thought it might be fun to try adding a layer of texture to them. When possible I like to photograph at dawn, dusk, later afternoon, at night or around rainstorms because those atmospheric conditions naturally create a mood that I love, but these photos were taken at mid-day or on overcast days....and i thought: maybe these are good candidates for some kind of artistic "embellishment".

    In my next few posts, I'll share some of these shots that I decided to upload as textured. What do you think, Flickr friends? Like? Not like? Feedback is welcome.

    Enfin j'ai eu un moment pour essayer quelquechose dont j'avais envie il y a longtemps. Plusieurs de mes photos d'Europe m'attendaient passiament pour leur 'traitement texture'. Pendant les vacances de Noel j'ai eu un moment pour experimenter...et vous verez le resultat cette semaine. Voici la deuxieme photo de la serie. L premiere est si-dessous. Qu'en pensez-vous?? Est-ce que je me perd un peu trop dans cette 'fievre de texture sur Flickr' ou non?? ;0)

    Thanks to SkeletalMess for the texture: www.flickr.com/photos/skeletalmess/3539017654/

      Malgré que je ne cautionne pas les retouches car elles font " fin du monde ", j'admets que vous avez encore fait mouche. l'image est à la limite de la photo et de la peinture. Vous restez mon idole

      The rooftops along with the chimneys are so characteristic. Paris is great.

      Where exactly did you take this photo from? I'm trying to track down what roof tops in Paris let you up there to see Paris from above. I'd really appreciate knowing :)

      oh wow! that is really beautiful. I am all for this type or art form, it is kind of nice to look at interpretations of the real thing. Photography really means painting with light, and today sky is the limit, we must embrace technology!

      I missed this when you first posted - it's a very appealing rooftop view of Paris, and like all of your work, an image made with great care and insight.
      Hope all is going well for you Rita!
