Paris is no better - or worse - than any other city in the world for photographers. To me - Paris is much ado about nothing. Washington D.C., San Francisco, LA, NYC, Chicago - or Tokyo, Madrid, Rome - all have the same opportunities. Even this little burg I live in has some fine opportunities for artists. Perhaps not as many - but they are still here - the town was built at the turn of the last century and many of the old buildings and monuments are surviving.

I agree Hans, the cities in Europe are so beautiful, especially Paris and Rome, I love the narrow streets and the use of so many Flower window boxes. The cities in the States are nice but are too new and are really based on European design without the character.
Give me one Rome or Paris over all of the US cities.

Hi Hans. Thank you. You have some great shots of Paris. Paris, Prague, venice, and Lisbon are my favorite cities to shoot in Europe. So much character and history in the cities of Europe.

Each city has their own unique character and flavor, all like a dream...

Love Paris, can't wait to go back and re shoot many of these 35mm slides taken in 1954, before 2 billion more humans were added to the globe.

Had mixed feelings on Paris, but from the art/photography side of the equation it was an absolutely an uncommonly beautiful city. I would gladly go back.

Beautiful pictures Hans. I agree with you and Connor and John. Then again a photographer can create images wherever he or she is. It's just easier in Paris.

The grass is always greener... As a European I've always preferred to shoot in US or Far East cities. A least that's where I feel more creative. Familiarity I suppose.

I love Paris and am enjoying all these wonderful shots! There is a never ending choice of subjects and lighting.... Paris, Rome, Vienna, Venice.....yikes, I am making myself want to leave right this minute! Thanks for the memories.

I want to go to Venice. I've already been there actually through google street and made some 'photographs', mindmaps. If you haven't tried seeing or walking through a city or place yet through google street, try it! It's a great way to get a sense of a place, prior to visiting it for example. Worlds at our fingers...

" It was dawn when he said:
'Sire, now I have told you about all the cities I know.'
'There is still one of which you never speak.'
Marco Polo bowed his head.
'Venice', said the Kahn.
Marco smiled.
'Every time I describe a city, I say something about Venice.' "

Enjoying all the images...

Have many from my grandmother's life in Paris...especially post WW2 before she emigrated to Canada.

Venice is like going back through time when you walk the streets...especially if you all alone. It's like you are on a movie set for 17th or 18th century film. Another city like that is pretty close to Phillip, Bruges. Bruges is also very fun to explore and walk the streets there especially at night.

Hi,

I'm going to Paris this summer.
Have you got any tips?
Maybe some tips for street photography there as well?

Thanks in advance,

Mel

John yes, Bruge is a great old historic city for taking photographs, the Venice of the north. Thanks for reminding me, we often don't see anymore the many photographic opportunities in our own backyard. I've been thinking for some time that I should finally go make some photographs there. Don't have much for an excuse for not having gone there yet for photography.
Mel, for street photography in Paris ( or anywhere ) I would let your intuition guide you, follow where your feet and mind takes you, psychogeography. From the railway station, Monmartre is pretty close to walk to and from there you can take the subway or walk ( I prefer walking, if you only take the subway from place to place, there are too many photographs that you'll miss, especially for street photography ).

On my last trip I also went to the Musée d'Orsay. It's huge and lots of amazing work hanging there from the masters and the largest collection of impressionist paintings. If you like museums I would definitely go to the d'Orsay rather than the Louvre ( for modern art there's the Centre Pompidou ). There's mostly a very long line standing but if you buy your ticket at an info kiosk ( at the main railway station for example or online on the museums website ) you will have a much shorter line.
