Les Rues de Paris | The Streets of Paris – Part One

I’ve been fortunate to photograph Paris on many different occasions, most recently this past July when I was there to teach a workshop.  Paris is a city full of iconic landmarks of course, like the Eiffel Tower or Notre Dame, but the truth is that I find the most joy when I am simply sitting by the river, when I am walking along the narrow cobblestone streets, and when I spend time chatting with people in little shops and cafés.  Every one of these simple activities has the potential for so many new experiences and new photographs.  I love that.

Most of the photos from my July trip have been sitting on my computer, unedited, for about six months now.  I’m not sure why I didn’t process them right away, maybe I just needed to let them sit for a bit.  Regardless of the reason, it has been a lot of fun to re-visit these images with fresh eyes.  They bring back memories of travel with family and friends, of working with wonderful students, and of a city that I will never tire of photographing.

This post is part one in a three part series that will feature new street work from La Ville Lumière, the City of Lights (all images captured with the Fujifilm X100F).  I will be back in Paris this June for another workshop, but until then I have these photos to work through.  I hope you like them!

Cheers,

Ian
