Mostly close ups that could be anywhere
13 July 2018
There are a lot of really stunning photos in this book, very pretty and a great coffee table book, but here's my problem with it, they are all close up shots save for maybe two or three. There are some really lovely pictures of close ups of art and architecture but overall there aren't many pictures that scream Paris. There's one picture with the Eiffel Tower but apart from that they may as well have been taken at a florist in Hackney because a close up of a bunch of flowers in Paris is the same as anywhere else. I was hoping for shots of blossom trees with ll'arc de triumphed in the background. A shame really, I feel this was a missed opportunity.
