I know you are not supposed to take pictures at your own wedding but since it was a small gathering and my Leica X1 is so tiny, I could not resist to take a few snaps. And obviously, since I was the groom, I got pictured myself doing so quite a few times. I tried to give a street photography feel to some of the pictures, but it wasn't easy, especially one the candid side.
Finally, all my thanks to Florence and David from Switzerland who took these pictures (using a Fuji X10 and Canon GX1). They are currently on a round the world tour and visited for our wedding. You can follow their adventures on their Facebook page (in French).
While in Paris, I had the pleasure to go out for a shoot with Philippe Blayo, a passionate street photographer. Philippe took a couple of pictures of me in action so it resulted as good opportunity for a new "The shooter shot" entry. (click on pictures for high res)
The outing ended with a beer by Notre Dame, and two interpretations of our surrounding.

Thank you Philippe.
Since many of you enjoyed the Melbourne series, here is a repeat in Manila. This time it was Enrico Gutierrez (interview coming up in a couple of days) that discreetly took pictures of me in action. I did change the sequence for this series as you'll see the shot I took right after each of his pictures (click on picture for high res)
Enrico used an Olympus E-P2 with Panasonic 20mm F1.7 lens. Thank you Enrico for these shots.
Do you ever walk in the street and think of a photographer : "What the Hell is he shooting" ?
A few days ago, I went on a shooting outing with photographer Kristian Dowling (I'll post a great interview of him tomorrow). When he shared the picture we took that morning, I realized that he had taken a few shots of me in action. I thought it would be interesting to match these pictures to the ones I took meanwhile I was being photographed.
Have a look first at these four shots taken by Kristian (Leica M9 with 35mm Lux Asph)
Here are the resulting pictures (all Fuji X10)
