Part two of the London/Paris vacation in the Fall of 2009. My second time visiting Paris, but as the first one was spent mostly from the inside of a tour bus on a high school trip, this felt like the first time in so many ways. Stepping off the train at Gare du Nord it's immediately obvious why there are so many photographs taken of Paris: the iconic scenery, the museums, the outdoor cafés, the busy river... The challenge, of course, is to create unique images of scenes that have been viewed in books and postcards by just about the entire world. It's not as easy as it seems, but I tried.
