Notre Dame, Paris

One of the wonders of the world, the 13th century church replaced a cathedral from the sixth century. It has been the heart of Paris, involved in the history and literature of the city. The image above shows one of the three great Rose Windows.

The courtyard of the Louvre, Paris

The courtyard of the Louvre, Paris

It played a prominent part in Dan Brown’s bestseller “The Da Vinci Code“, the pyramids in the courtyard of the world’s largest museum, the Louvre in Paris. When combined with great fountains and reflecting pools all backed up by a building that was once the world’s grandest palace, it provides photographers with plenty to play with. However, you want to get here early before the crowds arrive.

The pyramids are a recent addition to the Louvre museum complex, completed in 1989. As expected, the futuristic design caused great controversy but I think it has been a very successful fusion, which not incidentally, solved the bottleneck entry problem the museum had been suffering.

Night on the Midway

Photography is a good excuse to do things we don’t usually do. I haven’t been to a fair since my children were young, and I wanted to take some long exposure shots of the midway rides at night.I went to the local fair here in Paris, Ontario, and it turned out to be a lot of fun.There was not a lot of technique involved, I set the ISO at 50 to minimize the noise and this translated into shutter speeds of 6-10 seconds. Of course, at those slow speeds, a tripod is a necessity.

Pont Nuef, Paris

Paris is a city that seems ideal for pedestrians. It has wide open spaces with sights of historic buildings, the beauty of the river, and lovely grand gardens. I would invite you to see a gallery of images from Paris, some of well known icons, and some less well known.

Musee d’Orsay, D\’orsay Museum

The museum D’orsay was opened in 1986 at the site of the former rail station, the Gare d’Orsay, and quickly became one of the most popular places to visit in Paris. It houses artworks produced from the mid-19th century to just before the 1st World War, including the greatest collection of Impressionist art.
