Photos I took while in Paris in July 2006.

It was very hot that week. Paris is a great place for photographers of all levels since there is so much to be photographed, may it be architecture, candid or landscape.

Ah gay Paree- one of the most wonderful cities in Europe. The Pompidou Centre, a cultural centre for Modern Art, a striking building but getting to look a bit dated now. Go to the Louvre and look at the glass pyramid, (apparently they have a painting called the Mona Lisa there!)
The Musee d'Orsay in the old railway station is fantastic if you like the Impressionists, loads of Monet, Van Gogh etc. The Eiffel Tower is spectacular for views as is the top of the Arc de Triomphe. Enjoy as there is so much to see and photograph, get a good guide like the DK Eyewitness travel guide to Paris and bon voyage ! ( I wish that I had time to go again )...Geoff

I would definitely take yout tripod, there are many amazing late evening/nighttime shots to be taken.

To get about your best bet is a Metro weekend or week season ticket, not expensive and will get you to all the places you want to got to.

Places to go, how long do you have. Basilica du Sacre Coeur, Place du Tetre close by, Montmatre itself, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysee, Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre(no Camera usage allowed inside last time I was there), The Pompidou Centre(if you like your plumbing outside), La Grande Arche de la Dfense, a boat trip down the river is always worthwhile, Place de la Concorde and the obelisk de Luxor. On top of this there are all the back steets to explore and if you want to go further the Palaise de Versaille. This is still covered by your Metro Ticket.

Just a few suggestions of the places that spring immediately to mind . There are many many more.Enjoy your trip wish I was going.

I don't know much about Paris apart from you can't take pics of the Eiffel Tower at night and SELL them (it's to do with a copyright issue on the lights / light pattern).

There is nothing wrong with taking shots of the tower at night for yourself, but not for commercial reasons.

Some info HERE (the 6th question down)

Notre Dame. If you plan coming here during the holidays, expect to have to wait a long time to get in since it is a top attraction for tourists.
Le Louvre. This is a great museum with loads to do. Art, antiques, artifacts etc.
The Metro. A very easy way to get around Paris. Frequent trains, often crowded though on the main lines, so expect have to stand.
The Eiffel Tower. When you think of Paris you think of the Eiffel Tower. It is really worth a visit. Expect to queue a long, long time to get up!
The Sparrows. There are often great flocks of sparrows in the skies of Paris. By Notre Dame you find the most since tourists like to feed them.
The Seine. A walk along this famour river is cooling during the heat and great to sit down and relax with the numerous benches.
