De belles histoires à rues de Paris par Robert Doisneau

Google.com is my default site when opening my browser… So everyday, I get to see their latest banner to celebrate on something that give the surfers an info.  And now, April 14, they celebrate Robert Doisneau‘s 100th birthday… And who is he?? Of course, I googled him and wow! as in wow!! I love his shots!! He was a famous French photographer who used Leica and took shots on streets of Paris… and cool.. he was a pioneer of photojournalism… As I search along on his shots.. I say, two thumbs up and raising my hands to him.. I really love them!!

To check out his portfolio, visit these sites or simply google him!!

Here are my favorites –

 

The photographer must be absorbent–like a blotter, allow himself to be permeated by the poetic moment…. His technique should be like an animal function…he should act automatically. – Robert Doisneau
