Les Rues de Paris (30/01/2013)

I'm lucky enough to live in London. It's a great place for street photography and there's always something happening.
But I'm even more lucky to have close family who live in Paris and are happy for me to stay with them every time I visit.

Here are some photos from my visit a couple of weekends ago.

All photos were shot on the Olympus OM-D E-M5 + 14mm and 45mm lenses:


  1. I am curious Abtin, I have heard that there are strict laws in France against taking picture of people in public without their permission. Is that not true or does people just ignore it?

    1. Hello Anon.
      Thanks for the comment and question. I wasn't sure of the answer to start with but in doing some research it seems that what you've heard is indeed true. Luckily it's not a law which is enforced at all. So with a bit of discretion, street photography in Paris is indeed possible.
