Paris Photo Walk at Pont Alexandre III

On a Thursday night, I met up with other photographers in Paris near the Pont Alexandre III. The bridge connects to Avenue Winston Churchill. We met at Mr. Churchill’s statue on the grounds of the Petit Palais. The idea of this meet up was to photograph movement along the quais between the bridge Alexandre III and Pont Royal near Musée d’Orsay. It gave me an opportunity to meet other photographers and test my powerful compact Lumix on manual mode using a tripod. Not dressed warm enough, I only made it to Place de la Concorde. If anyone wants to capture a variety of wedding gowns or kissing couples on the bridge and under it, the Pont Alexandre III with its sculptures galore is the place.
