Paris on Film

I absolutely loved photographing Paris on my film camera, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. All of the little streets and cafes are so photogenic, I wish I could visit all the time!
Here are some of my photographs, taken on Kodak Portra ISO 400 film.

We stayed in Montmartre and our hotel was a five minute walk from the Sacré Cœur, one of the best views of Paris. The uphill walk was well worth it, through the cobbled lanes and the squares filled with local artists.

Most of my photographs I took while we wandered around the city. The metro was amazing in terms of getting from one side of the city to the other, and at a great price (I recommend buying a pass for the length of your stay – we got a five day pass for around €30). But exploring Paris on foot is wonderful and lets you discover your own Paris.

Paris is always a good idea

In November, I hit the big 2-1 and, along with my best friend Tara, escaped to Paris to celebrate!

We stayed in the gorgeous Hotel Des Arts in Montmartre, and spent our four days wandering the city. We visited the classic sights – the Eiffel Tower, the Sacré-Cœur and the Arc De Triomphe, to name a few – as well as discovering smaller streets lined with little cafes and vintage stores. Having dinner al fresco in November was a novelty, too!

On our last day we visited the beautiful Jardin de Tuileries, and had the best burger I’ve ever had in one of the restaurants. If you visit Paris, this is a must!

And what would a visit to Paris be without a day trip to Disneyland?! The park was filled with Christmas decorations, and the evening show was a mesmerising display of fireworks and Frozen. We obviously chose the right day to go, as the queues were virtually non-existent (riding Space Mountain over and over again with no wait was a dream!).
