Trocadéro

As you may or may not know, Lauren and I took a little trip across the pond to Paris and London last month. Going in November, we were expected cold and rain. Instead we were treated with blue skies, sun, and even some warm days. Over the next week or so, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite shots.

This view is pretty famous and if you’ve ever been to the Trocadéro, you know exactly where this spot is. There’s a famous black & white photo from this same vantage point that’s used on a postcards at every gift shop you go to in Paris. The problem is that when you go there now, tourists are everywhere.

I really wanted to isolate the statues, the building and the Eiffel Tower, so that’s why I choose to shoot at this cropped angle. Just below the frame are literally dozens of tourists taking snapshots of the Eiffel. I wanted something a little calmer.

Side note: as an experiment, I’m going to post this image on Facebook and Google+ to see what gets more reaction.
