    Hi Felipe:
    You picture in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris made me so stunned. I’m Daniel, also a photographer like you. I’ll travel to Paris next week. Could I ask you some questions?
    1. I found the tripod is banned in the interior of Notre Dame Cathedral. So where can I place before I enter the church? Do I need to go back to hotel to place it?
    2. Some websites and blogs are telling the public security in Paris is not so well. Is it safe to tourist like us to bring tripod to take a photo and go around anywhere in Paris?
    Thanks for you answering.ReplyCancel

  • I love this park so much, too! The place is stunning and the views of the city even more. I have been there twice, and the second time I stayed in an aparthotel near the park so that I could see it from my window :)
