I have been several times in Paris but never had the opportunity to take pictures at the famous Eiffel tower at night. This time was the “reveillons”, the new year’s eve night and i had the Fuji X-E1 and a tripod with me and the tower was lit up for the celebrations and i could not miss it!….

The Best Views of Paris | Stephen Ip

While in Paris, we visited five places that gave us a bird’s eye view of the city; Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Montparnasse Tower, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Since it was the off season, the only location where we encountered much of a line was at the Eiffel Tower. Instead of waiting in the regular line that would’ve taken us all the way up by elevator, we opted for the shorter line that required us to take the stairs to the second level before catching the elevator. It was quite a trek up to the second level but well worth it, not only to bypass the longer line, but to get a closer look of the tower itself…..

Jet lag, the Wall, and Random Images from Paris | Stephen Ip

Seeing as this is the third morning in the row that I’ve woken up at 3am, it’s safe to say that I’m still on Paris time. Speaking of Paris, what a beautiful city, eleven days and I feel like we only scratched the surface. Of all the cities I’ve visited, Paris is definitely the most photogenic. Funny thing is I feel like I hit a wall sometime during our trip, the photographic wall. The one that makes me want to put down the camera. The one that has made it hard for me to look at my images from the trip. And the one that has kept me from posting anything on the blog. It happens every year, so I know it’ll pass. Only a matter of time. Luckily, I did some editing in Paris so here are a few random images from our visit…..

Christmas Market on the Champs Elysee | Jeff Carter

On the Champs Elysee towards the Place de la Concorde is the location for the annual Christmas market.  The stalls line each side of the avenue along with food vendors and a fun fair.  The whole area is lit by thousands upon thousands of Christmas lights, with festive music playing over the speakers along the Champs Elysee; the whole scene is very Christmassy…..

Paris in Black & White | Stephan Ip

We’re a few days into my first visit to Paris and I must admit that I’ve been a bit overwhelmed photographically thus far. Everything about this iconic city, from the Eiffel Tower to the cafe-lined streets is truly photogenic. As I finally begin to edit my images from the past few days, I’m finding that I prefer many of them in black & white. It’s not so much that they look better in black & white, but rather that they just feel right that way….

Paris, France. 2013. Fuji X-E1, Fujinon 35mm 1.4 | Rebecca Lily

Johnny and I had a wonderful 8 days in Paris earlier this month. It was our first time there together, and we were both completely overwhelmed with how beautiful it was. The city embodies elegance and culture – from the graceful trees to the architecture to the refined cuisine and the visible appreciation for the arts. We were able to visit the Louvre and see the Mona Lisa in person (an incredible experience), hike up to the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur for a panoramic view of Paris, enjoy a boat ride on the Seine, and walk around at the Eiffel Tower. We rode the Metro a few times, met for coffee with a couple of fellow photographers, and visited a flea market to admire some French antiquities. Other than that we just walked around the 11th Arrondissement a lot, where our hotel was, and enjoyed the cafe culture, the numerous camera shops and wonderful restaurants. I really feel incredibly lucky to have been able to travel to so many beautiful places this year. And more than that, to be able to share these experiences with the man I love, who is the most wonderful companion I could ever ask for…..

Paris – A weekend shooting in the streets – Fuji x100 Firmware 2 |
Morgan Moller

Just made it back from a quick 3-day weekend in Paris. We were out celebrating my grandma’s 80th birthday with the family. Paris is always a lovely city to come home to. The lights, the pitoresque streets, the Seine, the cathedrals, the bistros, the boulevards, everything really. You’ll just have to live with the traffic I guess. There is a reason world-famous photographers like Cartier-Bresson, Brassai lived here and contemporary photographers like Jay Maisel and Bill Cunningham keep returning here over and over again. Evidently, cleared two days for some much needed street photography. Paris, like any major city in the world lends itself perfectly to street photography. I’m a big advocate of shooting the city or place you live in, because every aspect can be interesting. However, in order for your streetphotography to be interesting, your subject matter needs to be interesting. Subject matter, evidently, are the people or things you photograph. If you live in a place that has very few, to no people, you’re going to have a bad time for street photography. That being said, photographers like William Eggleston have had incredible careers photographing the mundane everyday life. But this post is about street photography……

X-PLR | PARIS | Vincent Opoku

From my reader Vincent:

“I was lucky enough to get my hands on an x100s just before I begun my travels this year and I think it is the single most important photographic equipment I have ever bought. I carry it with me everywhere, it fits into my pockets effortlessly and it just becomes an extension of who I am. As a result of having the x100s in my pocket where ever I go and the travels I have coming up over the next few years, I thought it will be fun to create X-PLR. X-PLR is derived from explore and a play on the X series cameras. My aim is to explore as many different countries and cultures as possible and I will be documenting  99% of my travels with the X100s. X-PLR is still at an experimental phase but I  plan to visit some interesting places, my aim is to document things as I go along, so I am excited to see how things develop over the years….”

Paris Plages: The borrowed bank of the Seine | Carsten Bockermann


 
…. recently I spent a few days in Paris and discovered what the French call the ‘Paris Plages’, the Paris beaches. Every July and August the office of the mayor blocks a stretch of road along the river Seine and converts it to a beach. For those who can’t afford to leave the city in summer this beach provides a refuge from the heat, humidity and the tourist masses. I also found the beach to be a great equalizer: in the sand you find the rich and the poor, the Africans and the Europeans, the beautiful and the not-so-beatiful, the old and the young.
 
While many cities around the world have developed similar concepts, none of them can beat the atmosphere of a warm evening on the stretch of road that is borrowed from traffic for a few weeks in sweltering heat of summer.
 
All the photos were taken with my Fuji X100s and X-Pro 1 cameras. On the latter I used mainly the 18/2.8 lens, sometimes also the 35/1.4….
