Driving back towards Düsseldorf from the Atlantic coast, you almost can’t avoid Paris. And so I persuaded Nicole to stop there for three days, just so I could indulge in doing some street photography.
On day one, all three of us went to see the city. And I snapped a few photos along the way.
Day two. Showers. I went on my own and decided to visit the market at Bastille first.
Day three. Sunny. My longest day in town. Passed a lot of tourist hotspots. First: Arc de Triomphe.
For a while I watched the traffic on that huge roundabout.
Then I switched to the Rolleiflex for a good while. And – again – I have to say that I really like the results and the shooting experience. Should really use it more often for street.
Photographing in a big city, and especially such a famous and pretty one like Paris, is always something special. So much is happening and there’s so much to discover. You can never do it justice in photographing just a few days. And I find doing street photography in a metropolis is very rewarding compared to smaller cities: it’s more crowded and diverse and you much more frequently run into interesting situations or people.
Anyhow, that was my set from Paris. I had a great time!
I’ll wrap up this post with a few photos from back home again.
