    Hi folks!

    First off I'd like to wish you all a very happy Christmas. I am glad to be a part of this community ; I joined MFT last spring with the purchase of an E-PL3 (crazy discount price helped), followed in july by an E-M5. I sold my DSLR FF kit shortly thereafter in order to afford better MFT glass, and I am very glad I did. In the past six months I have shot more pictures than with my Canon FF DSLR in one and a half year. I have always received valuable feedback here at and I wanted to thank you all for that. Don't worry, there's a lot more coming in 2014!

    So, Paris, city of lights. The best time to visit is definitely around Christmas time ; near the Champs-Elysées, the Grand Palais (former housing of the Universal Exhibition of 1900, now hosting exhibits and collections all year round) hosts a special fair for two weeks. It is special because it is the only fair you will ever see inside the city limits of Paris and second, it is indoors! Here's a few shots I hope you will enjoy. Please, take a few seconds and give me your honest thoughts so I can improve my photography some more. ;)
