Passage Jouffroy

Le passage Jouffroy est édifié en 1845 dans le prolongement du passage des Panoramas, afin de profiter de la popularité de ce dernier. Pour sa gestion, une compagnie privée est formée, présidée par le comte Félix de Jouffroy-Gonsans (1791-1863), qui légue son nom au passage, et Monsieur Verdeau, qui laisse le sien au passage édifié dans le prolongement de celui-ci, le passage Verdeau. Le passage est édifié par les architectes François Destailleur et Romain de Bourges.

Le passage Jouffroy est un témoin de l'importante évolution technologique du xixe siècle et de la maîtrise des structures en fer ; c'est le premier passage parisien entièrement construit en métal et en verre. Seuls les éléments décoratifs sont en bois. Il s'agit également le premier passage chauffé par le sol.

Au début des années 1880, Arthur Meyer, fondateur du journal Le Gaulois, s’associe au caricaturiste Alfred Grévin pour créer une galerie de personnages en cire sur un terrain adjacent au passage. Elle est inaugurée le 10 janvier 1882 et a pris depuis le nom de musée Grévin. La sortie du musée, ornée d'un décor composé de divers personnages, se situe dans le passage et contribue pour une large part à son succès.

En 1974, le passage est inscrit au titre des monuments historiques. Le passage a été entièrement rénové en 1987 et a retrouvé son dallage d'origine.

L'entrée du musée Grévin se situe à l'intérieur du passage Jouffroy.
The Passage Jouffroy is located between 9, rue de la Grange Batelière and 10, Boulevard Montmartre , in a mixed residential and business district at the Grands Boulevards . Grands Boulevards is the nearest metro station of Line 8 and 9 . In this district, a short distance from each other most of the surviving passages of Paris: Passage Verdeau (9th arrondissement), Passage des Panoramas (9th arr), Passage Brady ( 10th arr), Passage du Prado (10th arr) and Passage du Caire ( 2nd arr).

The Passage Jouffroy can be described as an extension of the Passage des Panoramas, and they will continue through the passage Verdeau because it leaves a passage that crosses a road and immediately enters the next passage. Thus, these three passages lined in a row and the idea of the 19 Century, the flaneur to put in a specially created environment in a particular mood is still alive.
The Passage Jouffroy, named after one of the builders who had with others, the passage Verdeau build, was opened in 1847th The passage of the architects designed Destailleur et François Romain de Bourges, had to adapt to the difficult site, so that the first part ends as seen from the Grands Boulevards of some steps and the passage continues mixed after five descending stages. This part of the passage is narrower and shorter.

The Passage Jouffroy was the first passage, which was built entirely of steel and glass. Only the decorative elements are made of wood and was also a novelty floor heating. Since its renovation in 1987 it has regained its old charm.

In 1882 was directly next to the Passage Jouffroy, the Musee Grevin , named after the famous in his time caricaturist Alfred Grevin opened. The output of the museum is located in the passage, so that visitors need to continue their way into the passage.

KAP over Iguaçu Falls

We stayed in Iguaçu falls for 3 days, one day for a hike on the Brazilian side, one day for a hike on the Argentinean side and 1 day to hopefully KAP them.
The first 2 days, the weather was just perfect, no cloud, beautiful light, very pleasant temperature and humidity and…NO wind at all. The last day of our stay came some clouds, wind and a very dull light but at least we had some wind and KAPing the falls seemed possible, even if I knew that the results would not be the best.
There is a very dense forest by the falls and the closest we could take off (according to Google Earth and scouting the neighborhood) was roughly 800 meters from the “ Garganta del Diablo”, on the lawn of the Hotel das Cataratas. A bit far, but not much choice and I thought that taking some height would be the solution, but of course we had to deal with the helicopters (which are supposed to fly at 500 meters or 1600 feet) and Heidy was so stressed that the entire session only lasted 15 minutes.
The wind was very unstable, the Fled was moving like the wipers on my car, the rig was jumping all over but nevertheless we managed to get half a dozen of almost “keepers”.
Time for a Caipirinha !!!

Gods & Shadows

One from the archives today - taken at Godafoss in Iceland 2010 when we had some blue skies to play with and the prevailing wind was blowing upstream making it much easier to photograph than our last visit.

Lake Bumbunga
South Australia

This morning, I took a punt and drove the 130km up to the Lake to see if I could catch some dawn light over the salt lake. After an encounter with the Loch-iel monster (which I will post later), I sat and waited for the dawn to happen. This was a series of 9 vertical shots stitched in CS5. I really wanted the foreground textures to show and perhaps give it a little of the Murray Fredericks look of land and sky only. While I was taking stills with the mk3, the mk2 was firing off a timelapse which eagerly looking forward to compiling in some spare time I don't seem to have much of these days!

Maslin Beach

I'm dreaming I'm in NZ now ( I will be there in just over 1 month). We have one night and morning at Moeraki where I'm hoping we'll get some favourable conditions. Last Sunday was the first time in a month I've had some time to head away from the computer and wedding images. It was literally a breath of fresh air - apologies for absence here on flickr - Marianne and I have hardly had time to breathe at home!

ps. this was my first shoot with 5dmkIII :)
