I've put together a short slideshow using some other photos of Paris landmarks that I took in April 2002. I wonder why I ever stopped using the camera I took them with. It was a Canon Pro90-IS that had a long zoom along with good image stabilization that made it possible to take long-zoom shots without using a tripod. I think I stopped using it because it was a big, heavy camera, and I wanted a compact camera I could carry in a shirt or jacket pocket. A few years ago I donated it to the Emmaüs charity organization.
Anyway, here are the photos of some iconic Paris landmarks.
The landmarks, in case you don't recognize them, are, in order:
• la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris (1.5 miles NE of Montparnasse)
• l'église Saint-Eustache (aux Halles)
• le Panthéon (au Quartier Latin)
• la basilique du Sacré-Coeur (à Montmartre, 3.3 miles north of Montparnasse)
• l'église du Dôme (aux Invalides)
• l'église Saint-Sulpice (near Montparnasse and St-Germain-des-Prés)
I'd really like to be able to go to Paris and go up to the top of the Tour Montparnasse on a sunny day to take some photos of Notre-Dame. The cathedral was badly damaged by fire 18 months ago. Maybe I'll be able to go to Paris next year....
