Paris prints are on their way

I’ve just put in a rather large order for prints and mounts which includes a few of the Paris pieces. Once I’ve got them ready I’ll set up the Paypal buttons but for now, here’s what on the way: Due to an oversight I didn’t order this one. Will rectify that asap.

TTV Pete wandering around Paris

Fiona has uploaded all her photos from Paris to Flickr. There are 408 of them (which implies she may have a problem) which makes the 24 of me not seem that obsessive. Here’s a few of the TTV contraption in action. The photos I took are still dripping their way onto Flickr and will do [...]

Four for the journey

Leaving Paris this afternoon. Here’s four photos from the last few days.

Arc and Basilique

Lots of photos to process from today but for now here’s a polyptych of Notre-Dame.

Par le Viseur

Art-Pete is the blog of Pete Ashton when he's thinking about art. It primarily contains photos and videos of work he's completed in this quest. The majority of his writing occurs on his main blog.

Through 2010 this blog was the home of TTV Pete where I talked about and sold my Through The Viewfinder photos. That stuff is still in the archives but I've moved on. Through 2011 this blog was a little confused but I think I've figured it out now.
