    what an excellent series of images
    i'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay in the US

    incredible imagery
    all of these

    have a safe trip home.... please post from home upon your return

    thanks for this great thread
     
  3. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing; it is always nice to look at home through the eyes of a visitor. I once showed my pictures of Denmark to my Danish friends and they shared their pictures of the US. It was amazing the things we each chose to photograph.

    Have a safe trip home and hang on to those memories.
     
  4. Wonderful series. I enjoyed every single one.
     
  5. Bertrand, thanks for these wonderful shots; a nice cross section. Don't leave us because the Cafe is open over there as well...same URL even!
     
  6. Oh Bertrand! It looks like you're leaving your heart here the way you have captured so many wonderful places in our country! All this wonderful series needed was music AMERICAN THE BEAUTIFUL!!! I hope you have a safe trip back home, have enjoyed your visit, and will post more when you have time! I dearly love the thoughtfulness I could see in each photo! Okay, I'll shut up now.....

    That's a great bunch of shots. Do you mean you never did photography before coming to the states? That's cool that you have something to take back that will be with you the rest of your life. Tell your countrymen we're really not bad over here and post more from home. Bon voyage.

    Thanks everybody for your kind words.
    I am glad you liked the pictures.
    Yes I will definitely come back, there are many places I have not had the chance to visit.

    Hi Dez, I usually go there on Saturdays, and I like pretty much watching and shooting the game. Even if I do not get all the rules...

    I indeed bought my first camera last September when I was studying in Boston. The US is a great place to start shooting DSLR. There are so many things.
    However I am sure I will enjoy shooting Paris and Toulouse (my hometown in the South of France) very very much :smile::smile:
     
  16. Hey Bertrand - try visiting South Louisiana some time - you'll find French spoken quite a bit! And of course tons of photo ops!

    What a terrific series of photos documenting you vist with us. You have an incredible eye and I'm so glad you shared these with us. Hope you have a safe trip home and, please continue with your art. I would live to see more of your work. France is one of the places on my "Bucket List."

    Thanks a lot!
    In the list of all the list I had to do before I leave NY there was "going to Dumbo to shoot the Brooklyn Bridge and Downtown at night"
    I did it tonight and I am very happy with the resutl. Clearly my D100 could never had done such a clean job. I will try to post some of them tomorrow or the day after.
