Finally we had a weekend in Paris. We had been looking forward to this trip for a long time. First and foremost to enjoy the city together. But I also wanted to take some photos while we were there of course. It’s such an iconic city and the birthplace of street photography. The city with its architecture, streets, avenues and people is just screaming to get photographed.
Instead I ended up with a lot of “meh” photos. How come? There are the famous iconic landmarks that have been photographed a zillion times by every tourist on the planet. Trying to get some original shots there isn’t the easiest thing. Street photography itself is not easy. The fear of shooting strangers in the streets and the realization this was the place and time for street photography added to the pressure of “making it happen”. Nevertheless some shots from our weekend in Paris below.
