Back in early October 2011, I took a trip with my wonderful girlfriend to London and Paris. I’ve been to both cities several times and have some wonderful photography to show for it. As much as I love the wonderful old architecture of both locales, I was very keen on seeing and photographing the modern architecture of La Defense in Paris. The area is much larger than I imagined and I could have spent a couple of full days there exploring.
Lately, I’ve been getting into abstract architecture photography. I find it interesting the things you can discover in the viewfinder with a long focal length lens.
I think the trick is to try out different angles and perspectives. Walk around the building or structure. I find I do best with the camera up to my eye.
Here are a couple of shots I like:
And the Grande Arche:
Look for another post soon.
