Paris - France
One of the best things about a visit to the 'City of Lights' has to be the ease at which the city can be explored; it is a compact city (only about 10km across) and can easily be walked but, one of the best things about this wonderful city is the Métro. The efficiency by which it transports people around the city is the envy of other international cities; not only is it well planned but the beautiful architecture (mostly Art Nouveau) of the stations makes a trip on the Paris Metro a must for any visitor to Paris.
The city sits elegantly on the banks of the river Seine, in northern France, at the heart of the Île-de-France region (or Paris Region). A significant settlement for more than two millennia, Paris is today one of the world's leading business and cultural centres, and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities; and one of the most visited.
Iconic examples of Paris photography can be found all over the city from the Paris Metro (Métro de Paris) to Montmartre (an area known as a place of artists, cafes, restaurants and of a life more Bohemian). Paris streets are full of wonderful street signs that are unique to the city and a wonderful photographic subjects. Many famous artists lived and stayed in the area including Salvador Dalí, Modigliani, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. There are never ending opportunities to motivate any photographer to add Paris photography to their repertoire.
