Il Gelato del Marchese ice cream & sorbet Paris France

I visited the new ice cream and sorbet maker Il Gelato del Marchese in Paris, 3 Rue des Quatre Vents, 75006 Paris, France (check the map below), managed by Renato et Veronika Squillante Montoro.
This new gelateria uses only premium ingredients and has 2 chefs working on the spot. They have the classic flavours, but as well very original ones like watermelon, gorgonzola, tomato.

no additives are used, only natural products.

They are ideally situated close to Odeon, Mabillon, Saint-Sulpice.

Paris monuments and people : beautiful winter 2015

This winter was beautiful in Paris with many sunny days and a blue sky. I was 2 week-ends in the city of lights and could get great pictures of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the River Seine, Hotel de Ville,the Sacré Coeur, and many other street photography shots with people.

Some of these pictures are made in HDR (High Dynamic Range) to be closer to the vision of our eyes. The sensor of the camera has a limited dynamic range : to compensate this, I take 3 times the same picture at different exposures. Then I mix them in HDR Pro Photoshop. after a few settings, that is supposed to give more details and better colors. I shot all the pictures with my Sony A7R and the Zeiss lens 35mmF2.8 .

I hope you will enjoy the pictures!

Rollei 35 T Lens Tessar F3.5 40mm Photos Samples

I bought this camera in Paris,at Photo-Beaumarchais (54, Boulevard Beaumarchais, Paris, France) for 180 euros.

The light meter is working and the battery was included. The only think is that I don’t have the strap so I will try to find one.
