Photos of Paris

I failed miserably in my attempt to write about Paris. However, what I didn’t fail to do was to go out and photograph the city. I only had 4 days in Paris so I really had to make the most of my time and shoot the places I wanted to as quickly as efficiently as I could.  I would love to go back to Paris because there are loads of sights that I didn’t get around to checking out, and even more places I wanted to photograph and didn’t. However, I am very happy with what I did come up with in the short time I was there.

Aside from London, I think that Paris was my favourite place to photograph in Europe. There are just so many different places to shoot. Moreover, I love the challenge of taking a famous place and trying to make it my own though my photos. I’d like to think that when you see my images of the Eiffel Tower, Arch du Triumph, and other famous locations in Paris, they stand out in their own way. And regardless, one of the most beautiful things about photography is no matter how similar one image can be to another, there can never be two photos exactly the same.

Anyways, time to get to the photos of Paris. I have chosen a dozen of my favourite shots, but I’m sure I could have added a dozen more. Which one is your favourite? What is your favourite place in Paris to photograph? I want to hear from you in comments below!

  1. Some cracking photos here mate. Jealous of you there. Spent three months in Paris in the 80’s What a great town. I forgive you failing to write so much about it. These photos do it a lot of justice

    • Thanks Matt, I’d love to spend a couple of months in Paris. I’m sure I’d get fat though from eating all day every day!

  2. I looooooooooved your pics!!! They’re absolutely amazing. My favourites (out of these, at least), are: the one with the “tricky moon” of the Eiffel Tower, and the Nº1 for me is the Tower but from the bridge!
    I wish I were there!!! Paris it’s a magical place!
    I remember when I was there, overlooking the city from the top of the Tower, having the impression of a “white” city (eventhough the smog and its size). When you overlook others, the greyish colour is almost imposible to avoid on its buildings. Don’t you think so?
    Waiting for more of your pics!

  4. Stunning photos! I have a view of the Eiffel Tower from my room, but I can never quite capture the sparkles like I want to. So instead, I just enjoy it with my eyes! 🙂

    • Maddy – Even as a photographer, sometimes I just put the camera away, look at the world and think “somethings aren’t meant to be photographed”. Capturing it in your mind is more powerful anyways :D.
