This window












Fuji Superia 200

It was my first time using this film and I am a bit disappointed by it... Funny because I love the 400.

It seems that I can never stop taking pictures from, at, of my living room window. Have you got any similar photo obsession?

I haven’t tried the 200 before, but I really like the feel of these. It’s such a nice place to take pictures from. My obsession is taking pictures of the same view from my balcony. I love the way the light changes throughout the day and capturing the sunsets. I never tire of it. Have a lovely weekend.

I love window photos too :)
What a lovely set of pictures, the ones with the flowers are simply gorgeous.
Have a great weekend!

Quite sure!
I live quite near of the old part of the city, and love to walk with the camera, rediscovering same places, same faces...trying to catch people (trying)...now with B&W film...hope to finish in some weeks...
Enjoy weekend!

Love your photography, as always. The feel of them is so soft and intimate. Nice!

As for returning subjects in my pictures: Well, my children obviously. But other than that I notice I am drawn towards those places in the house where the sun rays drop in and leave beautiful shades of gold on the walls and furniture.

i woudlnt' too if i had a beautiful window, with gorgeous flowers like yours!
i just love the verticality of the parisian windows...

I have to disagree with you; sorry! I think these muted tones and more subtle colours are utterly beautiful. Superia 200 is my everyday film of choice, I find it very calming. Sometimes the intensity of colour here is overwhelming and I love the way it records it quietly. Does that make sense? Peut-être que ce serait mieux éxprimé en français!!

je les trouvent superbes ces photos et pour l'obession de la fenêtre si j'avais un si belle environnement moi aussi je ferais comme toi plus de photos de la fenêtre!

une obsession photographique ? Moi ? Euh... Mes pieds...

natalia peris said...

kenza said...

si simple, si beau (et les photos préçeedentes également). Joyeuse fin de semain ma belle!

sara peixoto said...

i'm jealous, in a good way. i wish i could have a beautiful window, full of tiny flowers just like yours, to sit and read while breathing some parisienne fresh air. i'm sure i would take a lot of pictures, just like you use to.

I love your photos! I am obsessed with photographing flowers :)

I love these. What disappoints you with it?

I can understand your obsession....It's fantastic.

Yes, and when we first moved into this house that is all I did - and still do from time to time. The weather, as well as time of day, changes the scenery ...and when one has a balcony window in Paris, it is mandatory or else a sin if you don't take photos from there! :^)

Barbara said...

just spent the past hour browsing through your beautiful photos of France... it's making me desperate to visit again.

Luana said...

my bedroom view... buildings... sunsets... sunrises...

les pétroleuses said...

J'adore les couleurs des premières photos, très poétiques comme vue depuis ton salon parisien !!! alors moi je dis encore à ton obsession ! et pour avoir de la lavande et de la gaura à ta fenêtre, il n'y aurait pas un gout pour le sud ...affirmé ??? bon we !!!

Ida Nielsen said...

I'd do the same if I had a window like that :-)
I was once told to never use films with ISO 200 but always stick with 100, 160, 400 or higher, I can't remember why though?

Denise | Chez Danisse said...

Yes, I do have such obsessions -- my kitchen window, food on my kitchen table, my mason jars...sometimes my bay window. Oh, and every time we vacation I photograph my husband napping. I am quite fond of your window photographs.

Shirley said...

I love that 7th photo so so much!!

Kristin said...

Beautiful photos. A magical mood.

jackie said...

I've tried some expired Superia 200 and I didn't like them either, but I love the 400. I bought some yesterday for my trip!

jackie said...

PS: try shooting the 200s in 400. I did that once on a sunny day and it turned out quite nicely.

Howie said...

The darker your pictures are , the more I love them

kristina - no penny for them said...

i'm with ida - i would, if i had such a beautiful window!

i think my obsession is probably my blue sofa, without me wanting it to be. it just somehow sneaks into a lot of my pictures...

p.s.: i love the paleness of the colours, but i see what you mean. i think my favourite is a kodak 400 drugstore brand and slide at the moment. and agfa APX 100. oh, i can never decide!

Je fais souvent des photos à partir de la fenêtre de ma cuisine pour "fixer" les ambiances changeantes de la journée et des saisons...
Belle journée,

Pierre

I love this series, you're so lucky to have such a beautiful view from your home that continues to inspire you every day. The thing about windows - I suppose - is that although a window itself doesn't change much, what you see through it is so sensitive to the lighting, the time of day and the season that it is never quite the same scene twice. I guess that's why I love taking snaps at my dining room window.

kitchu said...

these are so beautiful... i am not feeling at all disappointed. i love your window/balcony shots. and yes, i have this obsession with fans and lamps.

Maria said...

love this set!

lavinie said...

These are the best shots I've seen so far! I so much love your blue.
