Last week I spend four days shooting in Paris together with a friend and colleague Rob de Voogd from Zappback.nl. Our trains arrived at Gare du Nord within 15 min of each other.The long list of shooting locations we made meant that the weekend was packed from very early in the morning till late in the evening. To get to all the locations we would travel by metro which made the 5 day Visité pass the best choice as it also gives discount on different attractions. Being used to swiping an Oyster card we were pretty surprised to get a very low tech paper ticket with paper counterpart with number and name filled out by hand.
The first day the weather was not what we hoped for grey and foggy but the rest of the days were pretty much perfect. Here is a first selection of images I have processed so far.
This first picture is the Eiffel tower taken early in the morning. As the second floor is being renovated (ready in 2013) under the tower it is like a building site so the trees really were perfect in two ways.
The second image is taken from that other famous landmark; the Arc de Triomph with a view from the famous Champs-Elysées in moonlight.
We visited La Defénse twice, this image is the glass façade of the Tours Société Générale just after sunrise enhanced by a polarizer.
