So I just got back from a long weekend in Paris, and thought I'd share some photos. They are taken with both my Konica Minolta A2 and Panasonic FX-01. It was my first trip there, and I had a really nice time, although there is quite a bit left for me to see on my next trip.
If anyone has favorite photos of Paris that they would like to share with us, please add them to this thread. I'd love to see what the better photographers here have done with the many lovely sights of Paris.

Thanks for looking!

You can either upload them as attachments to your post, or provide a link to an external site. In my post above I've included links.

Thanks! I was impressed by the sheer scale of the Louvre, something that I guess you can only get by actually walking around. It was great.

Very nice pictures. I especially like the Eiffel tower one. It's funny that, when it was first erected, everyone thought it was such an eyesore and now it's become the definitive icon of the city.
I wish I had photos from my last trip to Paris, but it rained the entire time I was there. :mad:
Si vous en avez d'autres nous aimerions bien les voir.

Thanks! I was impressed by the sheer scale of the Louvre, something that I guess you can only get by actually walking around. It was great.

The Louvre has more than 300 000 works of art in 60 000 square meters of presenting floor! If you spent just 2 seconds looking at each work of art you would have to be there for 6 days 22 hours and 40 minutes (day and night, without counting the time you need to walk around)

But what if you said: two seconds just isn't enough, i'd rather see fewer objects and actually realize what they are.

So let's only look at half of the things in the Louvre, but this time we'll spend 10 seconds on average per work of art. Then you would need 17 days 8 hours and 40 minutes without sleep, food or a bathroom brake.

It's not hard to see why the Louvre is the lardest museum in the world.

I have been there three times and have seen maybe 1000 things, so I only have to go there 900 more times to see it all. I am 24 years old now so i'll be 21 600 years old when I get done.:D
