In case you’re curious, I’m diligently following WordPress’ program Developing Your Eye. I think I know where all the buttons and switches are on the camera, but seeing where the pictures are in front of me is an area I need work on. Today happens to be Day Two: Street. This is a nice challenge for a couple of reasons. One is that I still have a day job, and wandering the streets of Albuquerque looking for just the right shot is out of the question. Plus, I’m trying to stay on track with the daily assignments, so I needed something today. During my lunch break I planned where to go to find streets with a little zing to them.

But no question about it, the best place in the world for street photography is Paris, France.
