Paris. The most visited city on the planet. These pictures were taken in the winter of 2008. Known as the city of light, everywhere you look, there is a photographic opportunity screaming out. Paris is the most populous city in France and sits on the River Seine. The city has numerous landmarks and famous buildings. The Eiffel Tower was built as a temporary monument for an exhibition but is arguably one of the most famous landmarks in the world. The Louvre, an enormous gallery, stands at one end of the Champs Elysees - the main thoroughfare through this beautiful city. At the other end of the Champs Elysees is the Arc De Triomphe. During the Second World War, the occupying German forces would make a daily show of marching under this archway as a way of undermining the Parisien population.
