Briefly about Paris and New-York

Paris and New-York are ones of the most charming and visited cities in the world and this is probabaly because they are very photogenic and full of cultures. Even if these cities are totally opposed regarding architectural style, they both offers wonderful scenes for cityscape photography.

Indeed, Paris is well-known for being build over centuries of cultures, and the famous Haussmannian architectural style that took part during the 19th century. This is during this period the city we know today has been shaped: streets and boulevards, public parks, bridges and many more. This is within his legacy than many Parisian today lives. Furthermore, Paris is famous because of the numerous monuments: Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Montmartre and its cobblestones streets… They will transport you into the past and amaze you by the beauty of their architecture with such fine details.

At the opposite, the concrete jungle of New-York and its, almost, endless modern skyscrapers of Manhattan. Like the One World Trade Center or the Empire State Building which are the most famous. Both offers interesting scenery for photography, especially the Empire State Building for which is lit up every night.
Of course, it will be too long to list all of them, and new ones are build every year! Don’t get it wrong, New-York is also home for very fine details buildings built in the past centuries, mostly in downtown Manhattan.

I mostly shot this series of pictures during night time. This is when their nickames make all senses: the city of light for Paris the city that never sleeps for New-York.
