Notre Dame from the Docks Along the Seine

Paris (France). Everyone traveling to Paris and photographing around this fantastic location, should try to find some places from where watching the city without the usual mass of people. It can be a tough mission, but it is worth the effort.

This photograph of Notre Dame Cathedral – for example – has been taken from under a bridge on the docks along the Seine River, and it is now one of my favorite images of my large portfolio of photos about Paris.

Of course, the wide angle lens exalts the general composition and makes the entire scene more “drammatic”, but the thing that I like most in this image is the sense of “intimacy” with the Cathedral that I can perceive, and which is the same one I was feeling when I was shooting this image. The reason – as said – I think is that in the entire scene there’s no anyone: a pure and genuine sense of relationship with the subject, without any obstacle or element of annoyance.

Mi incuriosisce sapere a che ora le fai queste foto (parigi milano napoli ) per avere questi luoghi così deserti. Forse sei molto mattiniero ? A me nn succede mai !!!

Questa l’ho scattata in tarda mattinata: il luogo è deserto perché a nessuno passa in mente di scendere sulla Senna (niente di proibito, ci sono numerosi passaggi che consentono di farlo). Da lì si scoprono spesso degli scorci incredibili e – per quanto possibile – abbastanza originali.

Bellissima prospettiva, insolita
