Duo From La Villette

Into The Géode Title: Into The Géode
Location: Parc de la Villette, Paris
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Canon 28-105mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This is part of the Musée des Sciences et de l’Industrie complex in La Parc de la Vilette, north east Paris. This looks rather sinister and Orwellian, as if the humans are about to enter some great munching machine. The building was built to be an abbatoir before being turned into the museum. This was one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.

Cité de la Musique Title: Cité de la Musique
Location: Parc de la Villette, Paris
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Vivitar 19-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This is part of the Cité de la Musique complex in La Parc de la Vilette, north east Paris. The architecture is varied and contemporary. I though this bit looked like a spacecraft had just landed. Another one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.
