The icons   ザ アイコンズ

April 3, 2014

When you think of Paris, or even hear the word, there are probably certain images that come to mind.  Landmarks, more likely than not.  There are undoubtedly certain landmarks that are up for debate, but I’m sure that most will agree that the Eiffel tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and the Louvre are instantly recognizable by much of the world.


Having lived in Hong Kong for many years now, where even apartment blocks rise to 50 stories or more, it’s remarkable how flat many European cities are.  Paris is no exception to this.  As a result, it’s amazing how many views of the Eiffel tower there are, from all around the city.


The challenge for me, I quickly discovered, was figuring out how to get something different out of one of the most photographed cities in the world.  Could I get a different perspective of Paris that others before me hadn’t?  Highly unlikely, though I tried not to let that stop me from giving it a go.
