Trip Report Paris in black and white

Jump to last reply

I have only recently rediscovered how interesting it can be to see Paris in black and white, just like in the old movies and photographs. When I was little, half of the postcards for sale were still in black and white, but of course I would go straight for the garish ones in color.

But when you start looking at Paris again without all of the color, it helps you to realize what a timeless place it is. Many of the scenes look 50 or 100 or 150 years old and the obvious anachronisms just sort of fade away.

Here is a compendium that I have started of modern Paris scenes in black & white or sepia and it is really remarkable how much more powerful some of the images become: http://tinyurl.com/parisbw
