Yesterday, I shared some recommendations about Paris for a beloved niece who’s on her way to the City of Light.
In preparing the post. I saw some images I had forgotten as I was uploading pics to support my theses about where to go and what to do in Paris.
In the Place du Trocadero, anything can happen. Anyone can be there, taking any kinds of photos. For any reason, with anyone. It is packed with perfectly beautiful people taking pictures.
I was fascinated by the tableau below. She looks like a model, right? Great hair, great dress, great shoes.
But, pulling back a little, it’s clear that the “photographer” is using an iPhone.
Boyfriend proud of his gal? Friend doing a favor taking model pics? And do they know how iconic they look next to the gold statue-woman posing?
This is just 30 seconds of the never-ending magic at the Place du Trocadero beneath and across from the Eiffel Tower. Go. Experience it. Let me know what you think. (I love Paris.)

She’s not a model. She doesn’t stand like one. As far as his smartphone goes, there is an old saying that goes, “the best camera is the one you have with you.” Many Storyteller pictures were made with a smartphone.
Another great quote from the Storyteller! (Even if you didn’t coin it, you’re the one I heard it from.)
Somebody at NatGeoSoc did. I’m thinking Rich Clarkson, the dean of modern day basketball photography. AT the time he was DoP of the magazine.
I remember that evening
Yes, you were there! And if you check out the post from the day before, you’ll see a photo of your gratin that you so kindly shared a bite of (when no one else would) and you with a couple of our colleagues in the Place du Trocadero crowd in front of the Eiffel Tower in the golden evening light.
