Paris & Boston, September 2011

Paul Roark

From a Californian's point of view, they are both old cities with lots of photo opportunities.


Eiffel Tower, a Squirrel's Perspective
This structure is more impressive than I expected.

Evening at the Eiffel Tower

St. Chapelle

Paris, from the bell tower of Notre Dame looking west;
This 10,700 pixel wide panorama was composed from 11 frames taken with a Leica M9 and 35mm lens.
Three focus points assured high resolution from foreground to background. Cylindrical stitching was done in CS5.

Left Bank from Pont Alexandre III

Stairway at the Louvre

Louvre Reflections

The Dome Church, at the Invalides in Paris, is where Napoleon's tomb is located.

Le Champ de Mars Brasserie
Not a dramatic photo, but the scene is so typical of the area, here at the south end of Rapp Ave.

St. Chapelle, Color
I, too, enjoy taking color snapshots. (This snapshot is over 10,000 pixels high.)


Looking down St.James Ave. from the Boston library.

The interior of the Boston Library is not to be missed.

Trinity Episcopal Church

All images were taken with a Leica M9 and Zeiss C Biogon 35mm f/2.8 ZM lens. Stitching and multi-focus, hand held workflows were used often. (c) Paul Roark 2011
