Nice shot!, that's Pantheon and Notre Dame isn't it? Can I ask where this shot was taken?

Thanks, and yes you are right

It was taken from the Parc de Belleville in the 20th arrondissement. You have a great view on Paris from there, but it's not a very safe district, so I didn't spend much time there with my 3 limiteds on that day.

Thanks for the tip, I stayed in a hotel on Rue de Maubeuge in I think 9th Arr for my trip to Paris and it felt ok, and I had a full day walking around 5th and 6th Arr with a K-5/ DA18-250 hanging on my neck and I didn't felt much unease, guess I didn't really got to the more seedy side of Paris.

Color Run Oporto 2013

So, we yesterday it was our first Color Run in Oporto, Portugal.
My pentax was right on it with the 18-135mm wr lens.


Here are some pictures taken with them.. Of course, the last one was not taken with it, but was taken with my small Panasonic LX3. After that picture, just went to the bathroom, opened the water, not too cold, not too hot, and put the camera under the tap.. 15seconds and it was looking new!!!
It was such a reliefe to be totally surrounded by color powder and not to worry a bit about the camera and lens.. I do have one thing to say.. I really needed a wider field of view AND a WR lens.. What are my options??

So I was fortunate enough to borrow a Defender off Land Rover for a week last month... as well as a K30 cw 18-135mm lens off Pentax!









And here's a random pic that I quite like!

Indeed, the 5th and 6th are all but seedy
