Sights of Paris: People of Paris

There are so many interesting characters in Paris but they all have something in common: they all seem to be so casual, almost to the point of idyllic, that I also fell into that mode even after only a few days there.

They enjoy watching life pass by whilst sipping their coffee, taking long walks along river Seine, soaking the atmosphere of the Tuileries Gardens, enjoying the art in the many museums and just being able to walk past one of the many bakeries to bask in the aroma of fresh bread.

No wonder they’re ALL relaxed!

Here are a few shots I took of Parisians out and about. It was also a good way to test out the Fuji X100S in a foreign environment (already taken it out for street photography in Melbourne but I already know what to look out for and what the streets can offer). Worked like a charm and the focus was still pretty quick. I found that focusing with the EVF was slightly faster but only marginally compared to the OVF. Due to the bright sunlight the built in 3-stop ND filter was great and helped significantly.

Also, for the first time in a long time, I shot this entire series using JPEG fine, not RAW, which is rare for me. But the Velvia film simulation was excellent and I love the quality. To anyone with the same camera, make the switch. It also helps with the storage 🙂

Enough about the camera, below are some of the pics of Parisians I managed to capture. Hope that you enjoy the set,
