Snapshot Saturday: 23rd January

Recently, I’ve found myself telling everyone I know and then everyone that they know that my new favourite hobby is taking photographs.

I am always drawn to the person in the person in the room discreetly holding their camera.

I now spend my Friday evenings discussing new photograph ideas and the best

Yep, I think we’ve now established that I’m a loser!

So a couple of days ago, I was thinking… why not start a Saturday Series! And so Snapshot Saturday was conceived.

Every Saturday a photoessay will be posted on the blog. This will mean that A) My written content won’t become oversaturated with photos & B) You won’t all be bored with too many similar shots if you follow me on instagram.

For this week’s instalment (and also the first- in case that wasn’t already screamingly clear), I’m doing a broad essay on my favourite city, Paris.

First though, some fast facts about Paris:

  • There are 6100 streets in the city.
  • The city of love is not only also the city of lights… but a city of dogs. There are more dogs than children in Paris (as many as 300,000- woah that’s a lot of poop!)
  • During Roman times, Paris was known as Lutetia.
  • There is only one stop sign in the centre of Paris.
  • The name ‘Paris’ comes from a celtic tribe that resided in the area; the Parisii.
