As you all probably know, there was a Dyxum meet in Paris in the spring. There is a Paris Dyxum Meet thread here in Themed Views.

To my surprise there was no Show us ... Paris thread yet, so I thought I'd start one with some 'general' shots of the Dyxum meet.

But if you want to know about Paris (and the faces of some famous Dyxumers ) be sure to have a look at the Paris Dyxum Meet thread.

Almost all my shots were taken with the A900 + CZ 24-70/2.8, which I found an excellent combo for Paris.
I have selected a few themes from my shots. Here's the first one:

The fence of the Sacré-Cour

Thanks for opening that thread darosa.

Fresh off the camera, if I may! That was taken in the 6th arrondissement, and there's a little sunshine after many days of gloomy weather

You're welcome Winwalloe.

BTW: what does that sign with the angel and the gun mean (1st pic, wall on the left)? I saw it when I was in Paris in March.

The angel part I don't know either. But the text below is a play on word: F-HaiNe (F-Hate), which sounds like FN or Front National, the far right political party.

Great atmosphere in your shots Winwalloe, I'm sorry we never met up while in Paris, but who knows what the future brings.

Leo, good to start this, agree the Dyxum meeting thread is getting a bit long and stale, so here's some of my "pure Paris" pictures:

1.
l'Histoire


2.
Paris, the center of the world


3.
Famous landmark


4.
Fighting a bison


5.
On the steps of Sacre Coeur


6.
Typical Parisian Boulevard


7.
The start and finish of many Paris trips, the TGV terminus in Gare du Nord
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Thanks Pieter! Now that I'm actually settled in Paris, that should be eventually manageable :)

There is a whole world under the streest too.
These from the catacombs

1 the plaque explains the reson for these tombs - some one may wish to translate.


2 The "buiders" also left their mark in various carvings


3 Is a caption necessary?


4


Maybe a little off putting for some but a fact of life in Paris - and the reason for the existence of some arrondisements.

happyjack: the plaque just says that it was done at some time ordered by some guy, it doesn't give much explanation to the whole catacomb business...
Though I've never visited them, and those pictures speak for themselves.
Also most of it is locked, but some people do visit them, at their own risks...







Not with an alpha camera, but shot on the same walk... (EPL-2 + 45/1.8)

Maybe the locals or even rural French don't visit them but tourists certainly do. There was quite a queue when we visited. They are well lit and while there are some areas closed off, there is still plenty to see.
The only risk is the horror and maybe the odd hitting of a head on the roof as far as I recall.
