Paris in the Spring – Photos

This is a collection of photos I’ve taken over the past couple of months. Some of them have small stories or descriptions attached, others are more self explanatory. Most of them come from essentially “normal” days here in Paris, meaning that I never went too far out of my way just to get a photo. Enjoy!


Most of the monuments in these pictures are there because they’re easy to spot on any sort of daily walk. Especially since my apartment and university are centered well in the middle of Paris, it’s easy to only have a five or ten minute detour and run into the things seen here.

The Hôtel de Ville
The Eiffel Tower seen from the Place de Trocadero
The Notre-Dame seen from the right bank, near Shakespeare and Co.
The Sacré Coeur Basilica on Montmartre

Montmartre is the biggest detour from the normal area I tend to be in, but it is completely worth it (clearly).

Shakespeare and Co. during the redbud bloom.

I wish I’d gotten more pictures with the pink flowers around the city because it was amazing, but they of course disappeared quickly.


Just things along the road

This photo is right near one of my favorite spots to sit outside and have lunch. To the left of this road is the river Seine, and to the right is the main AUP building. About a block down is Apollon, a Greek restaurant that has the best Gyros.

A mural near the Notre-Dame

The area I live in has a number of these murals on different electrical boxes and things around. I’m not entirely sure if it’s some sort of commissioned beautification project, or if it’s just graffiti no one has bothered to clean off, but I like them.

A really neat sign near my school. Roughly translated, it means, “Maleville Cabinet and Carpentry Company”
A poster for a nearby contemporary art exhibit. For me it serves as a reminder that other countries are thinking about the US often.
An alleyway that leads to one of the buildings for my university
A road near my university. I try to walk it frequently because I love the view of the Eiffel Tower.
Eglise Saint-Jean de Montmartre
