A Quick Hop to Paris – Photo Report


Let’s just get something straight right from the start: it is possible to drop your camera on its shutter release and take a good photo in Paris.

That being said, I have been to Paris so many times, that to be frank my last couple of visits have seen me running out of inspiration a bit. I thought to myself, there are only so many photos of the Seine and the Eiffel Tower that you can take. Which is true, but it’s been a few years since I did the “proper” tourist Paris, and a chance to take my girlfriend to the City of Light for her inaugural visit on our way down to the Dordogne meant that I had the perfect opportunity to recapture some of the most hackneyed photo subjects in the world – but we were lucky enough to have nice light most of the time, so I didn’t feel too ashamed of myself.

So take a ride with me as I present my own version of the Standard Book of Parisian Photography.

You can see more of these shots on my flickr set here.

There will be more to come from the South of France in a couple of days, a set of shots I very much look forward to reliving.
