Last week My gf and I were in Paris, and what a trip that was. We’ve seen the most beautiful people, tasted the finest wines and cheeses. Met many interesting people, talked to artists, enjoyed the many romantic views and we’ve visited the well known touristic spots.
Of course we’ve visited the Champs Elysee, seen the Arc du Triomf, Basilique du Sacré Coeur de Montmartre, Eiffel tower, Notre Dame and many more famous places. But we’ve also visited a more infamous place: the Catacombes de Paris.
Underneath the romantic city with hints to a long gone past, there is a 290 km long network of tunnels. Initially these were made to mine chalk. However, from 1786 till the 19th century, these tunnels were used to store the bones of about 6 million French people. Nowadays you can visit the final resting place of these poor souls. Here are some of the pics I’ve taken.
Some happy stuff soon, no worries.
Bought a second hand used Canon EOS 10D modded with a special IR filter. A regular digital camera has a special “anti” infrared filter. This means it will NOT allow infrared light. However, some-one removed this filter and placed another filter which only allows infrared light. A new world opened in front of my eyes.
Lens used with these pics: 15mm fisheye. If you know me, and my fisheye lens, you will be used to a wider perspective. However, due to the 10D’s cropfactor the pictures are a bit cropped. A nice 8mm fisheye is on it’s way though! But this won’t be a surprise either for those who know me.
That’s it, hope you enjoy! Leave a comment if you have anything to say! Appreciated.
Remember the old Canon EOS 300D camera? I might have the 1DMKII and 5DMKII around, but sometimes it’s nice to play around with the oldies. Don’t forget I started with this camera and I did paid work with it.
Arnhem, Boulevard Heuvelink. Shot with a nice Minolta 135mm 2.8 lens (converter used)
Welcome to eternal happiness – My kitchen. 14mm wide-angle lens.
Shot with an old Nikkor lens, on my EOS using a converter.
Same lens as in the previous picture, but on macro.
Got this flower from my girlfriend. So I decided to capture it. Gotta catch ‘m all!
Once again the 300D, now mounted with the 24mm Tilt Shift lens from Canon. It’s amazingly cool if you know how to use it.
And my dusty bass. 14mm lens.
