For the first few days of my recent European vacation I toggled between my DSLR and the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. It's just so much easier, I thought to myself, falling victim to the idea that a camera phone was all I needed to document my journey around London. Fortunately I gave myself a swift slap on the face when I arrived in Paris. Though I'd (finally) decided to tote my camera around with me everywhere I went, I still hadn't landed on exactly what I wanted to document my trip. The standard tourist shots would surely creep in, but there was a need in me to come up with a series while on vacation, however straightforward given my limited means when traveling with a single lens and no lighting equipment.
The following series started my first evening in the city of lights when I decided to snap a photo every time the train stopped. Given the looks from the French, I gathered they were less than ecstatic about my camera pointing in train windows, at faces, advertisements, and reflections, but I trudged on and ended up taking a photo at every single Metro station I stopped at during my six days there. Here is a preview of some of the shots I gathered.
