I'm planning to visit Paris in five and a half years, with my daughter who will be ten years old. That would be eleven years since the last time I was there. I'm like most anybody - nostalgic about the classic French photographers, like my favourite Robert Doisneau. And about the Eternal city itself.
Since I'm a bit of a francophile (some would say severe) I am preparing for the trip by teaching my daughter some french and presenting bits and pieces of French culture to her - and myself! Since I've also stepped up a level or two in photophilia recently I also make plans for the perfect camera kit to bring. I would need proper wide angled lenses for crowded streets, portrait/compositions lenses, and tele for far-off-ish scenery.
Canon P with 20 mm Nikon lens on adapter. I would use a 35 mm on it.
What do you think about my plans? Which camera(s) would you bring? Feel free to comment below.

|Another visit here would be real nice.|
