Paris Seen Through a non-SLR

January 13th, 2007 Posted in Places

I’ve been fortunate to go to Paris a few times. For the last couple trips I had a Canon Powershot A70 with me. It’s not the most powerful camera, but was more than adequate. In fact, it did a great job.

There is so much to shoot in Paris. Sometimes it causes problems in that framing and composition is difficult because you want to capture too much. I threw away more than a few shots because they were too busy. These are just a few of the hundreds I took while travelling in and around la Ville Lumiaire - the City of Light.

    Thanks! It took a bit of work but the Lightbox control really adds a nice touch to view pictures.

    Dave - These pictures are sweet. The colors of The Gardens at Notre Dame are so lush and vibrant. Very cool…

    Hi Dave, Great pictures! Got any good Paris suggestions for me? I’ve been there a few times and never enjoyed my experience. I’m heading there in May and looking for some good food/lodging suggestions. You know where to find me at…josh
