Photo Quai - Paris

When I was in Paris in late November it was during Paris Photo, an annual celebration of photography, with exhibitions across the city. One that we visited was on the quay beside the Musee Quai Branly, called Photo Quai - photographers from across the world exhibiting their best shots. Some of them were amazing.....made you think or made you smile.




My favourite photo was by a photographer called Daniela Edburg. Her whole collection was called Drop Dead Gorgeous and featured photos of people being tormented by food.....


Take the girl being chased by a candy floss tornado!

But I also loved this photo taken in Madagascar by Pierrot-Men..there was just something about the colours that amazed me.



Or this one taken in China by A Yin, where you can just feel the cold.....

Thanks for your nice words to my blog. What a beautiful blog you are writing!!! I love the picture by A Yin. I was living in Inner Mogolia when I was a teenager. Not that hash weather circumstance since I lived in the City....non-forgettable memories.
