Photoessay: Paris part three: some architectural cliches

Finishing this three-part series on Paris are some architectural shots and general cityscapes; the grandeur, oldness and overall feel of the place is something that’s evident the moment you start walking around. Capturing the atmosphere in a photograph of a relatively static scene that both invokes some feeling (and not a postcard) isn’t so easy to do; there are only so many angles of the Eiffel tower that work compositionally.

This series shot with a Leica M8, 21/1.4 ASPH and 50/1.1 in 2009, except for the Eiffel Tower shot which was with a D200 and 17-55 in 2007.

  1. Stunning Set Ming! Wonderful to view.

  2. Hey,
    I’m a photographer and I am studying in Paris at the moment. I have to say the images are fantastic and inspirational. This is the kind of work I’d like to leave having.

  3. All Leica M8 ? No, The eiffel-tower is taken with a Nikon D 200 @ 17 mm f 2.8
