Postcard from Paris |Paris By A Parisian

Written by on March 22, 2016 in Arty, Funky, Paris, Romantic


Paris is the most popular tourist destination in the world. It’s landmarks, cafés, museums and streets are photographed many millions of times a year and we talk to a brilliant Paris photographer who shares his favourite spots in the city to take the very best Paris photos…

More than 30 million people a year visit the city of light and enjoy its many sites and sights, its architecture, museums, cafés, cuisine, ancient churches and chateaux. But, It’s not just tourists that fall for the charms of Paris, its locals love it too including Paris photographer Wazim Tagauly. Wazim’s photos of Paris have gained him an impressive social media following and the photos he posts every day are anything but ordinary. Wazim has a day job but on his walks in the city he snaps away with his camera, managing to capture the special light of Paris streets and his tableaux of shops, restaurants, architecture, and daily scenes come alive on screen, leaping out with colour and fizz.


Wazim says “My favourite place in Paris to take photos is to walk along the Seine from the Hotel de Ville to the Eiffel – Tower (about 5km); you can see amazing places such as Cathedral Notre-Dame, the Pont des Arts, the Musée d’Orsay, the Conciergerie… A lot of inspiring places to take photos at any time!”


His photos of sunsets in the city are sensational, he spends many nights waiting for that special moment when the sun’s rays turn the sky pink and the colour is reflected on the still waters of Paris’s river. Asked to choose his favourite photos he says “It’s very hard to pick just one because each of them has a story. I select only the “best of the best” for my Facebook page or my website. But if I had to choose only one, it would be this photo. I love the composition and the general atmosphere”.
