It's been pointed out to me that you can access your old images by clicking on the triangle next to your name and clicking 'attachments' - as I result I've been able to locate some old images that I thought were lost forever - thanks Pete (farnz) for pointing this out !!

This lead me to thinking that it would be nice if we built a record of previous One Challenges, so that they could be easily accessed by forum members, for fun and historic interest

I've begun this tread for the Paris 2006 One Challenge and perhaps we might build separate threads for the other challenges

So, if you have images from the Paris 2006, why not post them here..!!

The image below is taken outside The Frog and Rosbif pub on the rue Saint Denis, Paris and shows most of the competitors - it's taken with my DMR and 21-35 R Apo Zoom, which was leant to one of the waitresses (who was also a photography student) to take the photo..!!

The group includes, from the left, Andy Barton, Phillippe Octo, James Earley, me (I've still got the jacket...), John Amiet, Christoph Dobrusskin, a gentleman I can't name, Steve Choo (who won that year), Bill Palmer, Pascal Mehut, Carle Bretteville, Anne Barton, Steve Unsworth, John Howarth, Marylin Howarth, another gentleman I can't name and John Driffil

And I think that it’s Christoph Dobrusskin not Robert Stephens. 

Yes I wondered whether it was Christoph Dobrusskin too although I haven't met Rob Stephens.  (Would he be former forum member Robsteve who shot with an R9 and the module telephoto lens system by any chance, Andy?)

I remember it well also. I had just arrived from Morocco (where the local CIA had 'stolen' 50 rolls of my film) and caused me to miss my flight from Paris to Melbourne. As it happened I was 'stranded' in Paris at the time of the Challenge, so I joined the Challenge. Ahh! The quirks of life.

I also remember my beer in that pub cost me more for the credit card fee than the beer. Lesson learned.

I am sure to have London and Amsterdam somewhere down in the cellar of this computer, or in my paper file of the One Challenge. Actually, I hope you can open the attached: it consists of the posted pictures for Paris.

Also, I stand corrected as to the names of the participants: I found in my paper file the correct list: you are right: it is Christoph and Marilyn, and another one is wrong: next to Christoph, it should be Boudier, no Doudier

This might answer your questions as to the identity of everyone...

However, to confirm your suspicions, it is indeed (partly) the wrong answer... :)

I got a computer litterate friend to downsize it; the quality suffers but at least it's here!

Enjoy

That's great - I love the pictures and biographies for the participants - no one looks a day older....😉

Philippe, 

I believe it's Marilyn Howarth rather than Ann.

So ... who took the picture? 🤔

Pete.

We went outside at the start of the challenge and I got the job of taking the group photo - problem was that I couldn't then be in it - so luckily we discovered that one of the waitresses was a photography student, so she got the (then nearly new) R9 / DMR / 21-35 Apo Asph Zoom to take the photo.... She was instructed that if she got mugged whilst taking the photo, at least she could club the assailants with the DMR which weighed in at a couple of kilos...😀

None of us look a day older.

 

I suspect that this is the photograph that is kept in the attic...

...but it IS... it IS....🧛‍♂️

      Because of the covid-19 lockdown I am unable to go out on to the streets to photograph, not that there are any people around. I am therefore still working through my archives, and came across this image from Paris in 2002. Taken with a Leica M6, 50mm Summicron f2 and using Kodak T400CN film (which I used to love!). I hope you like it.
      I have also been revamping my web site using Adobe Portfolio, which is part of the Lightroom/Photoshop package, and like the results so far, although it is a work in progress. Take a look here

      Hi All, I am sharing my short article few years back when I traveled around France for a month just carrying one body (ME) and one lens (50mm Summilux). It was a regret decision for the fist 1 week but I am enjoying the thrill after that :D. I wonder if you guys have the same experience with just relying on 1 lens for your long trip.

      Paris has always been a special place for street photography for me and, although I haven't been there for far too long, I try and emulate  the work of its' great photographers such as HC-B, Robert Doisneau and (dare I say) Peter Turnley. For me it is like fishing on a great trout stream in that you are always bound to have a good catch.
      This was taken in 2000 using my M6 and Kodak T-Max 400 film home processed. I think it was with the 50mm Summicron lens, although I can't be 100% sure.
