PARIS

"Paris is always a good idea."
Audrey Hepburn

Paris, the world's most popular city destination, has plenty of must-see places most of which I indeed visited in just four days. Besides I did make sure to spend time strolling off the beaten path, sit in cafe's and just look around to discover the real Paris: a lively cosmopolitan but undeniably French city.

I had planned to shoot a lot. But ended up shooting a lot less. Firstly because I wanted to feel and sense without interruptions but also because I realized how difficult landscape shooting is for me as I don't do that much. I thought I didn't have any pictures but after arriving home and starting to edit I saw I had captured the most of my Paris after all. I ended up loving this series of my Paris photos. They are for me to live and love again every minute of my journey. Hope you like them too!

  8. Such a truly beautiful travelogue. I feel as though I walked the streets of Paris with you. You captured the essence of this beautiful city in such a genuine way. I can't chose a favorite, but the image of the artist at work touches my heart. I especially appreciate how you processed the images to give a soft and faded perspective to the entire post. These images could grace the page of any magazine or book and be right at home.

  9. I am not good with landscapes either - close-ups are much easier! You did a fantastic job though - amazing pictures! The photo of the geraniums on the balcony is like a painting and the Moulin Rouge at night it great! The photo of the artists reminded me of when I went to Paris on a high school trip and had my portrait drawn in charcoal by an artist under the Eiffel Tower. I thought that was just a random person - didn't know it was such an established part of the city.

  10. I think you captured it very well. Such lovely photos. I know when we were in Paris I wanted to take way more than I did, we were on a tour and I felt rushed all the time.
