I don’t flatter myself by thinking I’m a Paris expert after one short visit to the city. I barely got a glimpse of this amazing old lady, but it was enough for me to fall in love forever!
The secret lies in how you perceive Paris: it’s good if you see it, but it’s better if you feel it. I could go on about what to see and do, but you know what? I skipped the top of the Eiffel Tower, I only visited the pyramids of the Louvre, so I’m not your dream tour guide.
What I can offer though is the atmosphere I now admire and the little shots I made that I felt managed to capture the essence of this French beauty. If you haven’t had the chance yet, I hope this little photo book inspires you to visit Paris, and if you have already been here, I hope it will remind you of the memories you cherish!
Our first top was Cimetière du Père Lachaise – and we wandered its streets for hours. The first rainshower caught us here, and it made the experience even more magical!
Ah, Montmartre… the monumental Sacré Coeur and the sun that greeted us only for a couple of minutes that day but turned the streets into a golden maze.
The ‘Je t’aime’ mural and a little bit more of Montmartre…
This neighbourhood has a thousand faces, if you ask me!
The ingredients of a perfect afternoon in Paris… something sweet to eat while you drink your coffee and listen to the rain outside.
A classic tower and a modern take on it (a.k.a. Christmas decoration at Galeries Lafayette)… all the lights and oh so beautiful!
Paris lights at the Invalides and in front of the Panthéon – isn’t it the city of thousand colors?
Clocks at the Musée d’Orsay… I only had one wish photowise and it was the picture on the right. I’m gonna die happy now!
All the shades of fall at the Jardin des Tuileries...First I didn’t find it extraordinary, but looking back the pictures I’m in love!
It’s almost too much for the eyes, yet you cannot not look at it! Impressive interior design at the Opéra National de Paris.
Circles and V shapes at Galeries Vivienne and the Sainte Chapelle – they say you should visit the latter during the morning for even better lights!
My favorite among all the places in Paris…Jardin du Luxembourg. We only had a short time before it closed for the day, so it’s on my list for next time!
The Eiffel Tower – day and night. I held the camera for half an hour to capture the lights at night in a time lapse video – it resembles to an earthquake but I had the best time!
And finally my favorite imperfect shots. A tribute to my good friend Dóri on the left, and me with some tourists at the Musée du Louvre whom I’d really love to erase but hey…these people are also Paris!
