Street Photography in Paris : le Marais,Odeon, Notre-Dame, St Michel, St Germain

I shot these pictures in Paris in November 2016, with a telephoto lens : My Sony A7R2 and a Sony G Master 70-300mm . It was a very interesting experience because usually I shoot street photography with a 50mm lens or a 24-70mm. A long lens gives you a different perspective and you can shoot with a different state of mind. You see things that you would not see otherwise. I edited them in Lightroom, and I choose black and white because it helps to focus on the subject, there is less distraction.

Paris in black and white has a unique look and it enhances the romantic aspect of the city.

From a modest fishing village, Hua Hin became a famous beach resort thanks to the railway which was opened in 1911.
