Friends in Paris

It was pretty difficult to shoot in Paris for me because all my shots looked like it's been done before.  Since Paris is a most photographed city in the world, what I was producing was saturated/touristy and no real stories.  No one needs to see another shot of the Eiffel Tower and other famous landmarks (i.e. Notre Dame, Sacre Couer, etc) no mater how abstract the angles are.  It's been done and it's been better.

What I tried to focus on were candid shots of the locals to tell a story.  

My drunk friends having a great time, a fashion student exploring Pont Alexandre, middle aged woman riding her bike, a playboy trying to get into a closed-door, few unrecognizable baroque buildings etc...
