Nadal, Henin and Who

Well 15 straight days of shooting the French Open tennis at Roland Garros is over. It was really great and I’m sure I’ll miss the action soon but right now I could use the rest. Both of this year’s winners – Rafael Nadal & Justine Henin – have won the tournament three times in a row now. I doubt that’s ever happened before.


You can see some of my favorite Roland Garros images from the past two weeks here:

Roland Garros – Favorites

My musical highlight of the week was photographing The Who in concert at Bercy. The do look a bit old but they can still make great music (although Pete Townshend doesn’t get quite as high with his jumps as he used to).

A friend of mine visited me from Australia this weekend. She had quite an eventful time in Paris. First, we were able to sneak her into the Women’s Final at Roland Garros so she got to watch the whole match. The next day she was walking around the Marais when a drunk woman approached her and proceeded to hit/slap her upside the head. She was fine but pretty stunned. And finally, the next day on her way out to the airport, her taxi got into a traffic accident (luckily only a small one). Her stay in Paris was short but memorable.

And now a couple of photos from the week …

    Seeing your position, we really can wonder what the girl, behind you, was looking at…;-)
