    I would like to know how copyright works in this group. I need to share some fantastic photos of this event with some friends (particularly photos of Carsten Saagar and Alex Tassot). But since most of the photos don't have signature I would like to ask for permission first...

    Thanks

      @Laeka: Good idea! The only problem is that there are too many photos and it's a mix of quality. Although as you say it's possible to send a list of photo urls. @Carsten:Great! Thanks! I prefer like that!

    hey Carsten, you do not need to say French police, we are in Paris, of course the police is French! ;-p

    yes, the snow was a bit wet and Place Hotel de Ville was more crowded as I remembered from the last time, but the rainy snow created some interesting light conditions and people were friendly and decided to make this parade the best they could despite the conditions. And I really enjoyed it !

    Hi Dan,
    As from my sources ( paris.fr, ... ) there're three parades, one on this weekend, two on next weekend ( part two ) ... : )

    February 7, 2013

    • Pamela F.

      I understand that next week is the new years parades, and this week is the Dragon Parade. Twice the fun!

    On a side note, I will give my new Sigma 35/1.4 a run for its money at this event. I decided to sell my 50/1.4G and 35/1.8G, both in excellent condition, so if you are are interested in any of these lenses, bring cash and you can try them at this event before I ebay them. The 50 still has warranty, I am thinking of €280, the 35 is three years old and can be had for €150
