Bee Movie, iPhone and Christmas Lights

Motivation and the weather are more related here in Paris than I remember them being in California. The majority of days here now are gray and while it’s not freezing, it’s cold enough so that going on an extended walk isn’t so fun. Just like you can feel the surge of energy when spring arrives, you can feel the dearth of energy related to winter arriving in the city.

Made it out long enough to photograph the French premiere of Jerry Seinfeld’s “Bee Movie” with Renee Zellweger. Unfortunately the weather was rainy and stormy the day of the premiere and they had to cancel a planned photo shoot under the Eiffel Tower. Those would have likely been some fun photos.

A huge number of techies braved the cold and lined up along the Champs-Elysees for the launch of Apple’s iPhone in France. The first customer to purchase the iPhone in France had lined up at 5:00am for the 6:30pm opening. Just FYI, French law requires that customers be given an unlock code with their mobile phones so the French version of the iPhone will be unlocked (although it will be sold that way at a higher price).

And finally, the season of beautiful lights around Paris has started. I hope to photograph the most special light displays around the city this month.
