Here is Eric’s description:
I always wonder how these painters manage to get the “big picture” with the right proportions while working so close to their subject. Then I think of Michelangelo and the ceiling of the Sistine chapel and… well I realize it was pretty much the same, only the other way around. Anyway I love this photo (and yes the dog has a lot to do with it!). FYI, I took it at Beaubourg.

Since 2005, he’s been taking a photo of his home town every single day, to feed his www.parisdailyphoto.com (PDP) blog. Since the launch of PDP, thousands of other cities have joined his CityDailyPhoto.com community, sharing their cities from a local view. One of his pictures is featured each Sunday on the Turley blog.
