    Just got back from a short two day trip from Paris yesterday. Most of this shots are more touristy than artistic in any form, but I thought I'd share my favourites anyway. Didn't have time to properly explore and get into the street photography side. All shots taken on NEX-7 with 18-55m kit lens f/3.5-5.6

    It's a water fountain that looks like a stack of cannons, not sure of the significance. It sits on top of a large pool with several more fountains in it, the whole structure is built on a hill that overlooks the Eiffel tower.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Actually those 20 cannons are also water cannons which can propel water up to 50 meters !

    Next time someone comes to Paris just ping me. Will show some nice spots for shooting.
