akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Taking a few risks in this heavy traffic. His bag with the skeleton of a fish may show what he thinks...

23 Nov 2009 11:43pm

@akarui: you are very observant !! :-)

bluechameleon from Vancouver, Canada

Well with this much of a traffic jam, I say why not get out and take a photo :)
This is really a cool shot and I like the depth of field you have chosen.

@bluechameleon: thank you - when i spotted this brave man, i snapped a shot right away in case he was run over... just kidding :-)

HafidzTan from Singapore, Singapore

@HafidzTan: never been to Singapore - maybe i'd try it & you could read about a flatten tourist... hahaha back!

Jerry - a moment in time [...] from Chicago, United States

There must be an easier way to commit suicide in paris than standing on the Cmaps Elysees :)

24 Nov 2009 6:13am

@Jerry - a moment in time [...]: one would imagine...

Ddo from Verdun, France

Heureusement qu on ne voit que lui avec son sac ! Il a beau être sur un passage pieton, la conduite parisienne n'est pas un modèle du genre. Que de risques ne prendrait on pas pour un bon shoot !

24 Nov 2009 8:21am

@Ddo: c'est ça - une belle photo de l'Arc ou la vie... le monsieur a choisi la photo, je suppose.

Nina from Haute Loire, France

Beautiful picture of Paris, monuments cars and pedestrians all in the box!

Beautiful shot! It shows the long road (and lots of traffic) ahead in our journey!

Godo from Barcelona, Spain

Great photo street!!!
Nice DOF.
B&W works 100%

26 Nov 2009 12:40pm

@Godo: thank you very very much! :-)

Marie-Jezaria from Paris, France

Il vit dangeureusement ce photographe !
Pour bien connaitre l'endroit, c'est quand même prendre un risque de se faire renverser ! Surtout qu'il y a toujours une foule de voitures qui arrivent de partout pour s'enquiller sur les Champs ! ;-)
Bien vu et bien joué ! ;-)

29 Nov 2009 1:18pm

@Marie-Jezaria: merci beaucoup - on peut dire qu'il a un concours de courage entre ce monsieur et les voitures là. :-)

`Paul from Minneapolis, United States

30 Nov 2009 7:27pm

@`Paul: hehe, I tried... Thank you for these encouraging words.
