Beautiful set, from this most beautiful city.
Some familiar, and others unfamiliar.
Looking forward to the following parts...

Beautifully photographed, Paris as I like to think of it. The reality we found on our last visit was dirty, noisy, smelly and congested, with absurdly expensive accommodation.

Thanks for the kind comments guys, much appreciated!

I recognise what you say Alan. Certainly the main attractions are extremely busy.
We went to suppport our daughter in a sports event, and since it was not our first visit to Paris we tried to find some alternative ways to spend our time.

More to come

A worthy addition to part 1, and I reminder of one of my favourite films, Les Amants du Pont-Neuf. The last image is my favourite, character and concentration in his face.

A beautiful and diverse set - with some really valuable pieces of street photography (it seems there are musicians all over the place)!

Just an advice: Post one or two images in the "Show us cities of the world" thread of Paris and create a link to this fine selection. That will keep it available.

TFS, Fred!

Indeed there were musicians all over the place, but these came out best.

And thanks for the tip Harald, I will certainly do that.
