April City Daily Photo Theme Day: my camera shy self portrait

Ferdinand de Lesseps statue Versailles
Last Saturday, with a fresh haircut, VDP was in Montreuil neighbourhood saying hello to famous Versaillais Ferdinand de Lesseps! A glimpse of VDP for April fools' day -er, no sorry, for April City Daily Photo Theme day! I'm sure you all know that the man built the Suez canal and that he worked on the Panama canal, right? VDP had shown you this statue and told you about him here. Below are a few other selfies... To view all participants in this month's Theme Day, click here! Happy April everyone!

Samedi dernier, les cheveux fraîchement coupés, à Montreuil, un petit salut au versaillais Ferdinand de Lesseps que VDP vous avait déjà montré il y a fort longtemps, c'était ici. Non ce n'est pas un poisson d'avril, c'est un "selfie pour ceux n'aimant pas être pris en photo". C'est le thème du mois d'avril de la communauté des blogueurs City Daily Photo, et vous pouvez voir les photos de tous les participants de par le monde en cliquant ici. Ci-dessous, trois autres "selfies"... VDP vous souhaite un bon mois d'avril !

A rainy evening in Montreuil way back in February!

 And finally a walk in the palace grounds, not unlike last year's summer solstice shadow selfie!

Et pour finir, une promenade allée de Cérès dans les jardins du château, une photo qui rappelle le "selfie" du solstice d'été, avenue de Paris l'été dernier !

I know you are protective of your privacy so this theme fits you very well. We can't be the only members who get the April Fool's association but then there are many more of these to come. Mine gets uploaded in about 7 hours.

Great take on this theme and yes, I thought of the April Fools Day thing too! Love the hair cut by the way.

De Lesseps turned up in a recent history book I was reading.

Creative takes, Ciel, particularly the boot!

Kate said...

Very nice "do" and perfect for the day.

Ah, keep us guessing..I like the rainy day picture although I'm not sure it's very flattering

Barbara Farr said...

Great series of selfies. You have beautiful hair:-)

I loved the selection so much, Ciel, that you convinced me to go the same way. Knowing your penchant for boots, that be my fave!

A brilliant and creative set! You have beautiful hair. I think the boot shot is really innovative is that bling on the heel?

I live in such a small town, that my anonymity sadly became unmasked several years ago. I used to value my privacy and do miss blog persona to private. April Fool, shy seflie came straight to mind too. Love the raindrops seflie, mysterious and atmospheric.

Loree said...

Thérèse said...

Une bonne variété de timides photos, a nous de compléter le puzzle.
