Daniel Abt - ABB FIA Formula E - Paris - 2019

Daniel Abt – Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler

Let’s go to Paris for the 8th round of the 2018-2019 season of Formula E in Paris, on the Invalides circuit. The main particularity of the Formula E championship, besides having a great panel of drivers, is to regroup around electric single seaters some of the largest car manufacturers in the world:  BMW, Audi, Nissan, Venturi, DS, NIO, with Porsche and Mercedes joining next year.

The 2018-2019 Formula E season is very peculiar as  we’ve had 7 drivers from 7 different team winning the first 7 races, with also 7 different polemen. A first !

The Paris round has been won by Robert Frijns, which make it the 8th winner in 8 rounds. It as also been the very first race to happen under the rain. I was really well seated at the end of the main straight, and could witness one of the craziest races ever. However taking photos from the spectators seating has not been easy because of the fences, the trees, the speakers, the lamp posts and the smartphones… I needed to be creative!

Cubblestones from the Joan of Ark period on the oldest street of Orléans, France, 2019.

The oldest street in Orléans. Orléans, France, 2019. Get an original, fine art print.

Wandering in the streets of Orléans an evening with my friends from the Collectif PhotoRuelle phot club. And it was an excellent idea as they showed me the oldest street in Orléans, which is reknown for having cubblestones from the Joan of Ark period! It’s at least what the legend says…

Championnat de Ligue du Centre Val de Loire - Cap Karting, Mer, 10 mars 2019.

Back on karting for the second round of the Ligue du Centre Val de Loire championship at Cap Karting on March 31st, 2019. Unlike the first round, it was sunny all day… and I even got a beautiful sunrise during the very laps of the day!

Championnat de Ligue du Centre - Salbris, 10 mars 2019.

I’ve had the privilege to be on the track to photograph the first round of the Ligue du Centre Val de Loire karting championship sur le circuit de Sologne Karting on March 10th, 2019. The morning was quite wet, with a few mansoon style showers during the first 3 hours ! Hopefully the afternoon was much sunnier…

Blur. Orléans, France, 2019. Get a print!

Another photo from my hometown, Orléans, France. This time I played with longer exposures in order to get this weird, blurred mood. Being a coffee addict really helps creating blur for this kind of photo! I wonder if I could start a project and make it a follow-up to Strangers in the Dark?
