    I've just uploaded pictures from my last trip to Paris.
    Enjoy!
    Found also nice quotation so which depicts the spirit of the city very well:

    "Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with
    demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an
    urchin, and, in this, hasn't changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I
    believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman."
    John Berger (English Painter, b.1926)

    There are 240 pictures divided into 6 pages:

  3. The composition of some of these photos are nice. I just can't for the
    life of me figure out why anyone would want to look at 240 SEPIA
    pictures. B&W? Yes. Color? Of course. Sepia?? Maybe one or two. All of
    them?

  5. The shots of illuminated signs in sepia were especially diconcerting
    ("I remember the old days when light was made with electricity")...

    Another vote against sepia. Some of the pictures have interesting
    composition but suffer from the color. How about posting a few of them
    in good old black and white so we can better judge them?

  7. I'm afraid I agree. Some nicely composed scenes, but the sepia is
    overdone and unrelenting. Also, your thumbnails are quite blurred -
    maybe check your gallery software settings..

  8. Probably worth noting that Pawel posted his request to a lot of usenet
    groups, and has not returned to any of them.

    plonk.

  9. He posts similar stuff periodically. I think he's trying to sell
    pictures.
    Or something. I've never been all that impressed by his work; YMMV.
