Paris Street Sign Photography

One of the best things about a visit to the 'City of Lights' has to be the ease at which the city can be explored; it is a compact city (only about 10km across) and can easily be walked but, one of the best things about this wonderful city is the Métro. The efficiency by which it transports people around the city is the envy of other international cities; not only is it well planned but the beautiful architecture (mostly Art Nouveau) of the stations makes a trip on the Paris Metro a must for any visitor to Paris.

Paris photography always exhibits a timeless beauty. The city of Paris is full of the verve and energy of life; and the streets are alive with people being people. Around Saint Germaine, Saint Martin, Passy, Place des Vosges, Montmartre, along Parisian streets like there are photographic subjects and wonderful compositions to be had.
