Leaving Paris for Charente, the country of Cognac.
Je quitte Paris pour la Charente aujourd'hui.
The name of the cat is GAIA, she is really a nice cat and she is with us for a very long time.
With Christelle just before the big day.
Avec Christelle juste avant le grand jour...
OUCH!!! It's cold!
BOOO!!! C'est froid!
I do not feel that good this morning and I was really ill yesterday evening. I just came back from work directly to the bed! So this morning I cannot eat or drink anything except one coke...
Si j'ai l'air si fatigué c'est que j'étais plutôt malade hier soir et limite ce matin. Bon j'ai quand même été bossé mais je me suis contenté d'un coca ce matin, impossible de boire ou manger quoi que soit d'autre.
This is the number 100!... I have begun the 9:9 AM project 100 days ago and I am still running! Very proud to complete number 100 photo with a picture fully dedicated to this magic number!
Bon vous l'avez vu c'est le numéro 100, la 100 ème photo, ca fait 100 jours que j'ai démarré le projet 09h09, et toujours vaillant!
Well what should I say? Happy christmas to everybody, I hope that you had a great time and that Santa Claus was generous...
Bon noël à tous, j'espère que vous avez passé une très très bonne soirée et que le père noel a été généreux
No work today, but a lot of thing to do: Xmas coming... So at 9:9 AM I am already active in the metro, direction Chatelet and the departement stores. He Jean-Michel hurry up! door will be closed!
Pas de boulot aujourd'hui mais alors plein de choses à faire. Alors pas de grasse mat mais déjà vaillant à 9h09 dans le métro direction Chatelet et les grands magasins.
I have decided to change of floor at 9:9 AM so that I met other people: so I was at the fourth floor with Patricia. I am not completely sure she understand why I want to take a photo...
J'ai décidé de changer d'étage à 9h09. Ce matin j'étais au quatrième avec Patricia. J'ai pris la photo, je n'ai pas eu vraiment le temps de lui expliquer le concept, j'espère qu'elle aimera la photo...
Sunday picture...
Photo de dimanche...
Doing the xmas pudding. Do you like that?
Je fais mon pudding, vous aimez?
The friday picture is with Sylvie which take my small camera to make some pictures.
La photo avec Sylvie qui a besoin de mon appareil pour prendre des photos...
Nice miss Santa Claus!!!!!
Just eating the plastic spoon after my coffee.
Sometimes I do not fell like commenting my photo, wonder why... However u can see the little bullshit camera I use for the 9:9 project.
with Maxime...
I was with the vendor of Monceau fleur buying a christmas tree... He was really surprised with the photo and I promised to give him a printed copy of the picture.
Avec un vendeur de Monceau Fleur pour acheter un sapin de Noel... Il a été un peu surpris et je lui ai promis une copie.
I am not in New York, neither in Chicago but right in the center of Paris in front of the Tour Montparnasse. I take the picture but is was too much exposed so I decided to switch to black and white...
C'est pas New York ni Chicago mais la tour Montparnasse! J'ai loupé la photo alors j'ai tout passé en noir et blanc...
It is really funny to see sometimes how not funny you are. I do not know why the hell I am looking so sad???
Pourquoi je fais cette gueule là????
Or I try to eat the arrow or the green arrow show the direction of my mouth. Either way it is just for fun!
Also I have cross the same road as yesterday except that the weather was much more foggy.
Looks like I am confused! But also it is not easy all the time to be fresh and alert at 9:9 am.
C'est vrai quoi à la fin
Today I have met Marie Jo at 9:9... Also I have put the 9:9 AM blog inside the Paris blogs webring. OK I take most of the time me and people inside building and this can be anywhere but in Paris. OK also this blog is mainly written in (bad) english but I am living in Paris. but I love Paris. Na! I will try to make a picture of me + "Tour Eiffel" at 9:9.
Mainly we are happy. Now you have to find why... I can already remove some obvious reasons:
1- we are very pleased with our new hair cut
2- it is monday and at least the week end is finished
3- It is freezing outside and the building is very well heated
4- guess now...
Not exactly sure that the picture is really made at 9:9 AM... At least it was just when I wake up. We had a great party with friends and we go bed quite late, sometimes it is good to sleep.
C'est cool de faire la grasse mat'!
This is my last work at home: I have just finish this small part of the wall using glass blocks. Seems to be ok...
One of the way to see this project is as a collection of all the people that cross your life, as Nelly for example who works in the same company as mine for a long...
Also I have notice this wonderfull little MP3 player (with a nice never seen FM functionnality)
Today I have changed of camera: the picture is made with a cellular phone, you know this new model that not only allow you to speak but also to make photo. Not too bad!
Very pleased to introduce you Alex, which is a friend + supported of my 09h09 web site. Alex is a saler, but I mean a very good saler, the kind of people with this very specific behaviour that make the sale action completelly different. At the end with a saler like him, you do not see someone that try to force you to buy whatever but a friend that friendly give you a very good advice!!!
Also I have today a paper concerning the site on a swiss site. The author seems not to fully appreciate the site. I say that mainly because the site is presented like a typical example of the bullshit ("n'importe quoi") the web produce... Well at least I get visites and it is the most important... So the thing to remember is basically that you better sneer at your site, explain why it is stupid, then you will probably gain visitors...
Picture with Marco this morning... I have made 4 pictures at 9:9 and this is the one Marco looks less tired. You may think that this guy should sleep more the night but I guess he's busy instead.
When you see this picture, an basically I have made this picture more than once, then you understand that you have a very programmated life. Everyday, at 9 I do basically the same thing: I read mails or I use the phone or I drink a coffee. There is not that much possibilities! This is also why sometimes I told myself that I cannot put the same picture everyday and that I have to find an idea. If anybody has an idea...
Second mirror picture for the week-end. This time in front of a "miroir sorcière" (witches mirror, english translation but I do not know if it is the way that english uses for this kind of mirror...
In front of the parking of the Meridian hotel in Paris. Again a picture in a mirror. I was back from the school of my daughter and I was going to the railway station to buy a newspaper... Sounds like a typical saturday!
Very casual friday this morning, no?
I have just made a big mistake: I have try to remove the blog hop stuff and I just half destroyed my 09h09 index page! I have put a link to the photos pages until monday were I can retrieve a PC with a back up!
Très "casual friday" non? Bon j'ai un peu merdé avec le blog et tout saboté...
Sinon amusant les annuaires inversés parfois: j'ai trouvé ca sur ce blog la
This morning I am late due to the rain plus an accident in the Paris "peripherique". Why the hell I am making explanations! Concentrated on the driving I was in my car (Renault Scenic) this morning on the way to business... It is also funny because this picture is almost the same as the very first one I have made the 18th september!
Ce matin je suis en retard, il pleut et le périf est bloqué par un accident...

I am really very very happy to get Sean in my list of guests present in the 09h09 web site. I have work with Sean few years ago, I have appreciate to work with him, as a lot of people does and then Internet arrives and our roads get different directions. As you may notice Sean is an irish name, and I guess that if ever Sean came in this blog, he will just say that my english does not improve since we work together. I must confess it is true, and it is also why I continue to use english as a kind of training! I was surprise to see him this morning, and as we do not see each other more that once or twice every year I just fell like I should make the picture , even if it was not exactly the right time 9:9 AM. But I am the master of my site and I can decide what I want!!!! It is good sometimes to be the one who decides....
I know I know this camera is just a bullshit camera, and the picture are let's say not the optimal quality. But when I start the 09h09 concept I do not want to spend a lot just for a concept... Any how, I am very please to introduce you Catherine and Olivier. I do not know if Olivier has already his picture in the web but he shoud deserve it because he is an "iron man" (I mean he practice triathlon!) and Catherine, well Catherine is not very visible in the picture! So I promise, next time we see us, I will try to make a better picture (what even the time of the day) and I will put it in this blog. We work together and basically I think and they run!!!!! No I am joking it is rather I make mistakes and they try to correct them!!!!!
The picture is with Magda this morning....
Again with my baguette, but this time in the lift in front of the mirror... for the mirror project. You can have a look at the result following this link.
I was in front of a very special store completly hidden in the "rue du Chateau" going for a baguette for breakfast.
This store is selling wooden jigsaw puzzle hand-cut in France, amazing...
The friday picture is with Anne.
Vendredi avec Anne.
JB, please do not take my web sites, pleeeeeeeeeeeease!
This picture is specially dedicated to this blog. To be honest I do not think that my blog is the question in life, anyway I do not know what are the questions in life??!!??
D'abord je ne peux pas être toujours avec des femmes quand je fais la photo et ensuite j'étais avec Olivier ce matin à 9h09 alors c'est tout...
Lo so che e la terza volta che faccio questo tipo di fotografia, ma che ci posso io se come un robot mi faccio la barba spesso alle 9 e 9 la mattina...
Do not ask me what Anne Sophie was doing with us at 9:9 am...
La photo est avec Marie Pierre, hello Marie Pierre, welcome in 9:9AM!!!
This time I have put people (I means girls!) in the picture.... OK there is a "Charlie's angels" look (rather red angels), but I is definitely fun. I just hope that every of them will leave a comment to present themselves... Let's see
C'est ma cravate, mais c'est aussi là que je me dis que mon appareil photo numérique, presque un jetable acheté 50 euros sur mister gooddeal n'est vraiment pas terrible, la cravate est mauve foncée et elle semble bleue....
Nothing special for this picture, except that the camera was very close!
