Paris - Streets and Cityscapes

—-

It’s always interesting to look back at moments through photography especially moments during travel. Everything is tinted by a certain distant nostalgia filtered through mood and every other external influencing factor. Were the leaves really that vivid? Were the vistas really that inviting? Did the streets really wind their way into your heart the way they have wound up there in retrospect?

I am in the process of putting the majority of my Paris photography online in one way or another. I am populating my Paris Pinterest board, adding to my Flickr Paris album (linked below), and I will eventually launch a travel photography portfolio site which will be part of my main photography portfolio.

A number of people have messaged me via email and my Twitter asking what cameras and lenses I used while in Paris. All of my Paris photos were taken with my Sony A99 and Sony A7R. I used the Zeiss 24-70mm f/4 lens with the A7R and the Zeiss 16-35mm f/2.8 with the A99. For the interior photos I have posted like in this post about The Palace of Fontainebleau, all photos were hand-held. In fact, I did have a tripod with me but I used it to shoot video (more on that in a future post!).

Photo-set:

1 - Spring flowers and stormy skies at Jardin du Luxembourg

2 - A view of Paris looking out towards the Eiffel Tower from the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette.

3 - A cat stops to ponder why I am so happy standing on this street in Montmartre with my camera, of course. ;)

4 - A sunlit street in the neighborhood of Buttes Chaumont.

5 - Spring blossoms on the Promenade Plantée in Paris (also known as Coulée Verte). I discovered that Paris has its own elevated park (that pre-dates NYC’s High Line!) with Rendez Vous with Paris. Pretty awesome.

6 - There is a really interesting story that goes with this photo that was sort of surreal in a cool way. So, prior to my Paris trip, I pinned a number of Paris photos I found on Pinterest to my Paris Pinterest Board hoping to visit the locations in the pins. This particular location is on Rue Ramponeau in Belleville, Paris.

On the final day that I was in Paris, Hugo and Gael from Rendez Vous with Paris took Katherine and I for a ride around Paris on their Vespas (the best time!). Hugo had told me earlier in the week that the view in the pin I pinned (which was totally random) looked like it was taken from his mother’s apartment complex. It turns out that the pin was a photo taken from almost the same location as the vantage point of his family’s Belleville apartment. And so, we rode to his mother’s apartment, met his mother (who was lovely) and pondered how strange it was that the view was indeed eerily similar.

7 - La Maison Rose in Montmartre, Paris.

8 - A hidden courtyard in Versailles City.

9 - Paris alleys are so charming.

10 - Few people seem to know that you can climb 300 steps up a very, very narrow staircase which will take you to the top of the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre which gives you an impressive view of all of Paris.

An American soldier kisses his girlfriend goodbye at Penn Station, New York, 1944.

this is heartbreaking

Photos like this make me wonder: Did he live? Did he ever return home? Did they ever get married, start a family? Or did he die, and she was left to go on without him? As tragic as it seems, that happened so many times during WWII, and looking at these two, it makes you wonder if they were they any different. I really hope so; I hope they got their happy ending. 

you and I think alike, tumblr user crescendowls
