Need info about location of photo in Paris ?
Dear all my friends in TrekEarth,

Maybe, I will come to Paris for a professional reason, and during the visit, maybe I will spare one day to take some photos of some places in Paris and other places near by..

Do you have any recommendations of places which is good for photography? landscape? architectural? street photo or human interest shot?

Safety? is it OK to walk alone with a camera?? because in some places, especially in big city (even in Indonesia) it is NOT recommended!
As this will be my 1st visit so I have zero knowledge about it, and I will welcome any recommendations given.

Who knows, one of you have time to take some photos with me?

Thank you very much.




Si pas de changement, je viendrai à Paris pour une raison professionnelle, et pendant la visite, peut-être je ménagerai un jour à prendre quelques photos de certains lieux à Paris et d'autres lieux à proximité ..

Avez-vous des recommandations de lieux qui est bon pour la photographie? paysage? d'architecture? street photo ou Human Interest?

Au niveu de sécurité, est-ce OK de balader tout seul avec un appareil de camera?? car dans qqs endroits, surtout dans des grand ville (meme en Indonesie) il est deconseille!
Comme ce sera ma 1ère visite alors je n'ai aucune connaissance à ce sujet, et toutes les recommandations sera la bienvenue..

On sait jamais, un d'entre vous aura le temps pour chasser des images avec moi?? ce sera un grand plaisir..

Merci beaucoup!

I don't live in Paris, and I am not in Paris at the moment. I was there about two months ago.
However, if you look in my gallery of French photos at (concentratre on Ile de France photos) you will see I have spent much time in Paris and France over the last few years and taken many photos. You might get some good ideas about places to go from my photos.
I can reccomend:

A cruise on the St-Martin Canal ( )
A walk through the Marais district.
Ile St-Louis (where you can buy great ice-cream!) - walk along Rue St-Louis from east to west and then across the pedestrian bridge to Ile de la Cite where you will find the Notre Dame.
I also like very much the left (south) bank of the Seine River at a place called Port de la Tournelles, where I took this photo - It is my favourite place in Paris, especially in the evening or very late afternoon. It's very close to Notre Dame.

In one day you cannot do everything. But these things I have mentioned are all quite close together. You can catch the canal cruise from outside the Jaures Metro station, and I should finish near the Bastille. It is the most interesting thing I have done in Paris.
Most tourists go to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame. But I prefer more quiet places and typical street scenes. It is quite safe to walk around with a camera, but be careful when crossing the road because some drivers think they do not have to stop for red lights !

Dear Andrew,

The link of photo of Port de la Tournelles you gave me is beautiful also.. and I'd like to explore this place too..

It's too bad I can not open the link :
