Paris Picture-Takers

I lived in Paris for a period of six months as a college student, and I've visited the city while on vacation a total of six times. Lucky moi. When I travel there now, it feels more like a second home than a travel destination. I'd much rather sit at a café all day than venture to the top of the Eiffel Tower. That said, I can't keep myself from snapping photos of the same famous structures over and over again. It's beyond my control. On my most recent trip to Paris, I tried a new approach -- capturing the city from the perspective of a first-timer by taking pictures of people taking pictures. Below are the results of my mini meta-photo project.

The Louvre Museum


The Notre Dame Cathedral

The Sacre Coeur Cathedral

  1. I love your pictures of picture takers. I always wonder how many foreign family albums I'm in after a vacation to Paris!

    1. Thanks! Paris is likely the most photographed city in the world, so I'm sure you're in tons of other people's pictures. By the way, good luck with the language school! The website looks great.
