Around Valentine’s Day, I went to Paris together with my partner. On the first and second day, we unfortunately had some rain. During almost all the time (two and a half days) we walked around, visited some sights and I took the opportunity to take some pictures.
During the stay, I used my Fujifilm X-T1 together with the superb XF 14 f/2.8, the XF 35 f/1.4 and for some fun the 8 mm Samyang Fisheye.

Obviously, one cannot leave Paris without visiting this monumental landmark.
The unique form of the Eiffel Tower makes it instantly recognizable. (XF 35 f/1.4)
Taken from the first floor, the black and white film simulation emphasizes the metal structure of the tower. (XF 14 f/2.8)
Huge towers cast long shadows (Samyang 8 mm f/2.8)
All visitor platforms are fenced. This shot was taken with the Samyang 8 mm f/2.8.
The center under the Eiffel Tower is ideal for ultra-wide angles (Samyang 8 mm f/2.8)
