#1103. Scenes of the Seine

By Dallas Thomas | Travel Photography

Mar 30

Going through the images I’ve taken this year it is interesting that they fall into 4 distinct categories: churches, street art, architecture and the River Seine.

Pont Alexandre III

This is the first post of this series – Scenes of The Seine

Paris is known globally as the City of Light, City of Love, and like other great cities of the world it has many distinctive man-made landmarks. The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, The Louvre, Sacré Coeur to name just a few.

Of course to cross the Seine bridges are required – this one is Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor
Pont Neuf – “the New Bridge” – actually the oldest bridge over The Seine

Barges moored along the Seine are a sight I never get tired of seeing and shooting.

A small amount of poetic license this shot is of the Marne just near the first lock from the Seine.

Without the company of my early morning shooting buddy Philippe the majority of these shots would not exist.

    Dear Dallas, thank you for sharing this set of pictures. Very enjoyable and an interesting combination. For curiosity’s sake, what focal length(s) have you been using for this set, please?
    Again thanks a lot.

  • Ron Jerome says:

    Thank you for this beautiful reminiscence of Paris. I have only been there once but you stirred a lot of fun memories. I met some very congenial Parisians in my short stay. You have a wonderful city. I will attempt to share Vancouver with you in the coming months.

    • Thank you Ron for your comments, I’m so glad these few images have bought back fond memories Paris. Look forward to seeing your images of Vancouver.

  • David A. Mack says:

    Thank you very much for this artistic review, made my heart ache to return and will as soon as the covid thing improves. I’m not an artist, or even a very good photographer, but in Paris, it doesn’t matter, even a blind squirrel can find a lot of acorns!!! I am curious though, I did notice that you purposely omitted the iconic captures of the tower and cathedral. Maybe as an aside, or footnote, an up to date photo of the cathedral would have been informational to so many of us saddened by the loss.

    OMG – this one slipped through, and I didn’t even see it, till just now.

    Great photography, Dallas – the French tourist people should hire you, to help their promotional efforts.

    I’ve seen the Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor, but I’ve never walked over it – must do so, next time I’m there.

    I was going to tell you which photo[s] I liked best, but unfortunately I can’t – practically all of them are stunning!
