ABC Wednesday: U is for a Usual Trip to Paris

Several weeks ago, Grace made another of her Usual trip to Paris.  She did her Usual things of seeing her scientific and business advisors.  She went to her Usual restaurants and clothing stores.  One thing a bit Unusual was she took a lot of bracketed shots, which means the same images photographed at different exposures.  I was then given the task of doing the HDR images for these bracketed shots.

She took quite a few pictures from this window.  I tried all kinds of combination using my limited HDR skill.  None of them came out good till I had this one into black and white.  It is so Unusually good, so Parisian.

Great shot. Manet (?) I believe has a similar 'shot' in his painting there is a balcony with a man and woman standing next to a small table with another woman sitting - all sipping tea as they look at the balcony. Again, great shot!

Wish I had a USUAL trip to Paris. I've had NO trips to Paris!

If I took a trip to Paris it would be very UNUSUAL. Maybe someday.

Wow! I love this shot. Nice HDR. I am just starting to play with HDR myself but I have not had anything that looked this good. Very well done.

And I am, as usual, terribly jealous of anyone who gets to visit Paris on a regular basis! Glad she had a good time, even if it was for usual business.

Yes, very moody - feel like Paris in the rain, or an old Asian art house movie such as "In the Mood for Love".
