I think you will recognize the landmark in this photo very quickly, even if it’s completely blurred in the background :) And for those who don’t, it’s of course the Eiffel tower in Paris.

I quite like this composition, as it was shoot through this damaged glass monument nearby, called the Peace Monument. Just a little different take on a classic shot.

Cracked

Yesterday’s post was full of photos of Prague, so today, let’s look at Paris.

Midnight Drivers
Blue hour at the Eiffel Tower
La Defense Business district

I just love this views from high up places. It’s probably because I love to have so much detail in my photos. That’s why in every city I try to get to the highest place, and that’s why my next trip is Dubai (can’t wait, just 10 more days and I’m there :))

Lot of detail

As the title suggest, the weather was not the best as I took this. I was planing to go shooting something completely different, but as I arrived in the city, it started raining and it rained so strongly, that I was unable to take any shots. So I turned around to get back to my hotel, but of course in the part of the city I had my hotel in, it wasn’t raining at all. So at least I could get some photos there :) It’s funny with these big cities, that you can have such different weather in different parts.

Rainy evening at the La Defense

The day I took this, it started raining right around the sunset. I thought about going back to my hotel, but as I was leaving the Paris next day, I thought I wait, maybe the rain stops. So i hid under one of the bridges, and spend the next 30 minutes watching a couple playing chess there :) And not that it stopped raining after that, but at least it stopped raining enough for me to take few photos.

I tend to use my 24-70mm lens when it rains. The reasons is very simple, and I think you would see it once you see the lens hood on it. It’s just massive, and it keeps the front of the lens nice and dry.
