Fabulous images, in particular the street scenes plus the spiral staircase. You made reference to Leica's most famous user - may I ask which camera/lens/lenses you use/travel with?

Thanks for sharing.

Amazing captures of an amazing city, I visit Paris on a regular basis and have never been up the Eiffel Tower, every time I get there, the call of a bistro wins me over. Love your style of capturing people and places, excellent.
