Some recent photos of Paris by Night. The good thing about the winter is it gets dark early (still prefer light summer nights though!) so do not have to go out late to take night time photos.

Click a photo to see the full gallery. Hope you like them.

Yet more inspirational pictures of Paris! Loved the ones in the snow, and these are great as well.

The Louvre looks even better at night!

As I wrote in your other thread, I'll be visiting soon, and I've planned visits to some of the main sights both during the day and night, so I'll be able to photograph them under both circumstances.

I am sure you are going to have an amazing time in Paris, especially photographing by night. Just take a walk anywhere and there is always something interesting to find. Especially if you like the architecture. People are so used to cameras here too, so you hardly get any trouble if you are taking street photos of people.

The Marais is worth a visit, where Helmut Newton shot some pretty cool portraits (Rue Aubriot). It is one of my favourite districts to go for a walk (helps that I live on the edge:)) The streets are old and look super cool. Some can be quite narrow though (so can be a bit tight for a nifty fifty). Plenty of people around to photograph too, locals and tourists. At the weekends it can get very busy with a lot of French visiting the area plus loads of tourists.

Good that you plan to visit by day and night, as they take on a very different look. I think I prefer on the most part Paris by night.

My favorite pictures are the ones where I can combine a human interaction with a background of wonderful architecture, so I know Paris will be a dream destination that I will return to many times.

Just added Rue Aubriot to my 'to visit'-list, thanks! Le Marais was already on there. Do you know whether the city is also busy at the end of March? I will arrive on Friday and leave on Monday, so most of my time there is during the weekend. Very few of the pictures I've taken in crowds turned out nice enough to print...

Towards the end of March should be busy enough. There are always people around to photograph. am sure, especially with the 50mm, you will find plenty of subjects to isolate.
