On the busy streets of Mongolia.
From a night of rain, food, and a mad dash around the city to capture as many good shots as possible during a short layover, the streaks and beams of the Eiffel Tower from atop the Pont de Bir-Hakeim.
In the heat. In the sun. In the rain. They’re pedaling. Like so many I’ve seen this week, their jobs seem brutal. With fares determined by both subjective (how hard they tried to deliver their customers) and objective (distance) metrics, it’s not an easy life. Yet they’re crucial to transporting this city’s people. This is one of the drivers from our shoot this morning.
From the overpass at the Jasola Metro station, on the walk back to my hotel.
At an intersection in central Ulaanbaatar, on the way to a hospital for an interview.
Standing on Pont des Arts and looking east at the steady traffic underneath Pont Neuf along Voie Georges Pompidou.
A vertical panorama, assembled from individual 2.5-second exposures. One of those images became Tower Segment, posted a month ago.
With a view just slightly different from last week’s Wet Street, a wider shot of the neighbourhood around the Arc de Triomphe. The ferris wheel at Place de la Concorde is in the distance.
From the top of the Arc de Triomphe, traffic on the Champs Elysees after the rain.
There’s always a nice quiet to the city during and shortly after a snowfall. So shortly after midnight, I took a walk to see what the previous 5 hours had left.
Back in the city for the first time in more than 5 years, I had a checklist of shots to try. Subways, buildings, streetcars. But the chance to do long-exposure shots from an outdoor patio at the Park Hyatt’s 18th floor bar was a nice surprise. There will be more from this trip in the coming days, but here’s one of my favourites.
