Pocket-sized art with more uses than you can wave a Bic at. Birthdays, thanks yous, Valentines or even Wednesdays, there’s always an occasion for a stunning card. From promotional weapon to distant friend-contactor, our cards are more versatile than Optimus Prime.
Cards are designed to suit the most common image ratio of 3:2, but any image size can be printed—we just leave a white border.
An early January morning in Montmartre, Paris. The very first artists are beginning to arrive to the Place du Tertre to set up their stalls.
Camera used: Nikon D60 with Nikon VR18-55mm lens.

Nice job with the selective colouring – it catches the eye. :)
Thanks a lot, but actually there is no selective colouring, just natural colours:)).
Montmartre looks great hehe, I can’t help but think of it as for the old city center in Bucharest, as it was built exactly to match the buildings in Paris
Thanks Bogdan, I didn’t know this – I am starting to like Bucharest already:).
lovely shot – it’s amazing to see it so empty for a change! Re the above comment about Bucharest – I did not know that – that is fascinating – thankyou for sharing it with us all:) – I have just added Bucharest to my long list of places to visit!!
Thanks a lot for your comment Christine, Bucharest is definitely worth a visit!Irina
Yes, unfortunately, the old city center isn’t in as good shape as it was in the past compared to Paris, the communist era did “mark” it :)
anyway Bucharest in the 1900s was called “Little Paris” because of that
there are parks, large squares, and a lot buildings, that look exactly like the ones in Paris heh, I have never been to Paris, but I have a lot of friends who’ve traveled there and I saw lotsa pictures and was amazed of the huge similarity of the buildings
It’s very interesting that Paris and Bucharest are so alike. There some very beautiful buildings in Bucharest – thanks for sharing the links Bogdan. I know what you mean by the communist era mark, shame that so many beautiful places were not taken care of or even fully or partially destroyed in the past.Irina
More on that Too bad the pictures are on so low quality
PS: sorry for flooding your message center lol
What a perfect shot for a postcard!
this is really lovely I can feel the cold air in the morning and the sense of excitment as the day begins………………..he he I am there already !
Glad that this image makes you feel this way Alison, I guess it’s what I was trying to convey:)
Well, I can’t stop myself to add some to the above comments; The times Bogdan is talking about, Romania was a Kingdom, and we had a king, Carol I of Romania, original name Prince Karl Eitel Friedrich Zephyrinus Ludwig of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen; after his death the throne was taken over by his nephew, Ferdinand of Hohenzollern. It is evident that the burgeoise copyed all Western Culture, including architecture; they even tried to speak France. Not too many succeded though Unfortunately Western and Eastern Europe are located at different poles – one Catholic and the other one Orthodox. So History followed what Religion dictated: Divide et Impera.
Interesting historic facts Mary, thanks for sharing!Irina
