I never tire of wandering the streets of Paris; there is always so much to see and to photograph. From elegant buildings to quirky details and of course plenty of street art.
A couple of weeks ago I showed you a street artist at work there and shared some examples of street art I’d liked on our most recent visit. But there was too much really to include in a single post. So this week I’m back with more.
As always I’m sharing this for the Photographing Public Art challenge. But as Marsha’s travelling this week she’s done me the honour of asking me to host the challenge on her behalf. For anyone who hasn’t yet come across this challenge (where have you been?!), here’s an outline:
It’s easy to play along with #PPAC
- There is no weekly theme even though Marsha’s post (and my own) usually has one. Photograph the public art that is available to you.
- The art should be freely visible from a public street or inside a publicly accessed building like a library. If you pay, it’s not public.
- Photographers should have free access of use for their photos with no copyright restrictions by the artists.
- The challenge starts every Friday at 9:00 a.m. Phoenix Time and it ends on Thursday at noon.
- Write a post on your blog, publish it, and include a link back to Marsha’s weekly post (or this week only, to mine), preferably in a comment; sometimes pingbacks are missed.
- Take time to visit other PPAC participants throughout the week. Try to visit at least two or three other participants in the community and please leave them a comment.
- Have fun! Art is to be enjoyed!
You can read more about the challenge on Marsha’s blog but please note, that isn’t the right place to link to. Please comment and link here. I’m going away soon myself but if I don’t pick up on your link please be assured that Marsha will.
So here are my remaining shots from this year’s Paris street art haul. I have a feeling there could be more next year!
Now it’s your turn
We hope you are inspired to find your own public art as you travel around with your camera this week, or instead to rummage through your archives. Feel free to double dip and support your own favourite challenges along with PPAC.
Finally, thank you to everyone who contributed last week. Don’t worry, I’m not going to thank myself as I took a week off from this challenge!
