    Amigos franceses,

    vendo essa maravilha de fotografia… e ouvindo La Valse d’Amélie é como se de volta a Paris e me sentir sentado num dos Cafés de Champes Elises tomando um vinho e “roendo” um pão.
    Nada mais magnífico!
    Parabéns a todos vocês.

    I love the site! But the music? While I like the film and the music from Amélie, I wonder if it’s the right choice, considering the location from which the photos were taken: the top of the Saint Sulpice, which is on the Left Bank / Rive Gauche. I feel that the film Amélie is really about Paris from the perspective of Montmartre. So if the view of 26 Gigapixels was FROM Montmartre, then that choice of would have made sense. However, the photos were taken from the top of the Église Saint Sulpice, which not only contains the Grand-Orgue de Saint Sulpice (one of the world’s finest and most famous organs), but also stands in the midst of the 6ème arrondissement–with a rich musical heritage (and annual Fête de la Musique) of its own! So why not mix it up? Perhaps give viewers a few more options… rock, jazz, classical, maybe even some live street noise (like you’d actually hear from above Paris)–some aural diversity to match the rich visual extravaganza that is 26 Gigapixels! ;->
