Morris & Bike
A warm day I was resting and playing with the speed at one of the Quays along the Sena River, few people at this hour, was 7.36 at the evening, still with sun
Noticing the Morris colon, full of color advertisements I focus at it and wait, this boy with the yellow bike, was perfect to match the colors, so click and here he is on TE

Lovely shot in excellent light. The framing is uncommon but very effective in the vertical format that highlights the column which is well complemented by the reversed street signs. The exposure is excellent considering the difficult light and we have lovely pin sharp details and great colours. The cyclist with his yellow bike adds dynamism and balance to the scene. The main subjects contrast nicely with the slightly dark building in the background.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

Nicely captured the young man on his bike, Maria, when you were aiming at the adv. stand.
Most attractive snapshots come accidently, as we want to show diff. item.
Late afternoon sun gave special ambiance by its light and colors.

hello Maria, It is always worth waiting for something interesting to happen, as this guy with matching bike. I am rather impatient and usually in a hurry. Nice composition with beautiful evening light.

I love this. The evening sun has caught the man on the bike so well and there is a good yellow theme between the bike and the advertisment.
Very well seen and taken.
Kind Regards, Ann

si, una Buena idea poner esto personaje en la foto. me gusta los detalles del cartel y la arquitectura de la torre donde está, una manera muy limpia de mostrar los eventos`para las personas en la calle pero sin dejar basura.
acá tenemos una mañana algo fria despues de unos dias muy calientes, ayer en pocas horas la temperatura ha bajado 20 grados.

The light was very favourable to you and you did very well to wait for the right person to enter the view. This man also contributed nice yellow details. The column contributed a lot of colours and an interesting image.

A very nice catch for photography. Light is well managed and the colors are very pleasant. Your reflexes were good to freeze this momentary scene.

Hola mon amie d'Argentine :-)
Jolie prise du cycliste juste près de la publicité , la lumière sur eux, renforce les couleurs contre le fond sombre des bâtiments
Si tu a le temps va voir j'ai postée une photo pour toi :-)

La luminosité à sous exposé l'arrière plan, ce qui donne un très bel effet
Bon cadrage de la scène

Excellent snapshot in fabulous light & clarity. There is a perfect contrast between the well lit column & bike rider and the darker building facades in background.
Superbly arranged in vertical format.
Very well done.

I missed many of your Paris pictures, so I MUST comment on them before any new ones of course. :))
I've taken many pictures myself of these advertisement columns...they really do make for interesting, and often, color-filled subjects.
You sure caught a great moment of light here too, making everything warm and even stronger in color. The bicyclist is a fun and lively addition, but he looks a little unsure of his balance. Perhaps it's the direct light in his face, but it almost appears as if he's concentrating a little too hard on staying upright while riding!?
A relatively routine scene on the streets, but I like what you've put together here to show some of the little nuances that make up this great city. Enjoy the new day mon ami de Paris, en esprit. :)
Cheers from the desert,
I will be leaving at the end of the month (27th), and I can't wait!

It is a lovely street scene, also because of the content, as this isn't just an ordinary street scene. The moment is well chosen. Superb shot.
claudeD (38090) 2014-08-08 11:57
wonderful brand new column you are showing here from Paris- Exceelent sharpness and clarity. I like that you have added the biker in your shot. He is adding life to the shot.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

Interesting scene with the yellow biker pedaling by the classical Morris Column, a piece of art ideal for advertising, and the gorilla poster intrigues.
I am turned off in the States, by the huge billboards, and we use to deny them along our California freeways, but advertisers have been returning, unfortunately.
Thanks for sharing,

Una bonita imagen del ambiente cotidiano en la ciudad, dos elementos son los protagonistas de la foto, por un lado la columna informativa de ese espectaculo y el ciclista, que has sacado en un bonito primer plano, con una luz magnifica y que da un gran toque de vitalidad a la imagen.
Gran foto, con hermosos colores naturales, la luz brillante y una excelente nitidez.
Que pases un buen día.
Mis mejores deseos.

Great daily life catch from Paris. Excellent composition and the cyclist is an excellent inclusion. Well done!

You showed a nostalgic piece of Paris that, with some
subway entrances design and the Eiffel Tower noble concept, triggers the wistful "WOW" while traveling back in the 'time machine' à la Ville des Lumières!
Many compliments for the dark backdrop that leaves all the limelight to the monument and the cyclist who gives a welcomed visual balance to the column.
