Black and white focus on Paris

An iconic landmark in Paris which can seen from many parts of the city.
Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt.
A carousel seems to be a common sight in French cities and Paris is no exception.
Waiting for a fare on the Champs-Elysees.
Arc de Triomphe is a wonderful structure that sits in the centre of a busy, chaotic roundabout that works.

Grey clouds here today prompted me to explore the beauty of black and white images of places I loved and as a reminder of travel before COVID.

    • Thank you for stopping by. My travels have been curtailed like so many others in the last two years even over state borders which is so foreign to Australians. I am a long way off achieving your impressive number of countries visited but can enjoy reading other people’s accounts. Lynn


  1. Many thanks for dropping by and leaving a positive comment too! Many years ago when I was working as a country journo I also had to learn to develop b&w photos in the darkroom. I was hooked from then on. Some of my photography I see through a journalist’s perspective while I take other photos like you of beautiful places and nature in colour to bring joy to others! But I do love black and white. Paris is photographed so much but many of the structures and streetscape has strong lines and I feel that works well in b&w.


  2. I love the concept of vertical travel and revisiting previous journeys! Great pics 🙂
    I have fond memories of Paris too. I think one of my favourite places was Sacre Coeur in Montmartre – stunning.


    • Me too. I loved Sacre Couer. It was much more respectful and no photos allowed inside unlike Notre Dame which was a free for all! Maybe I will publish some photos from Montmartre as well at some stage!
