07 Sep A Burning Notre Dame
Source: Fuji X Passion
Within the first few minutes of arriving in Paris, I found myself running toward a burning Notre Dame. Before any of this, when I got to my Airbnb, the only thing I wanted to do was drop off all my things and go for an adventure in a city I’d never been before.
I brought my Fujifilm X-T3 to pair with my Fujinon 16mm 1.4 and 90mm 2.0 lenses. I didn’t want to carry anything after a long flight from New York to London and subsequent train ride from London to Paris. I went with the smallest pairing and my personal favorite focal length — the 24mm equivalent, the 16mm.
I typically stick to one focal length — usually a prime lens — a day, or per adventure, and shooting in black and white + RAW. This helps me push the specific focal length to find creative framing, and black and white helps me focus on light and shadow. Paired with my X-T3, I was ready to explore and started to make my way to the Louvre.
I was in awe of the city as I crossed the Pont du Carrousel when some people around me started to notice smoke in the sky. We looked around, but couldn’t see where it was coming from. As I continued to cross, more smoke started to appear, and we slowly started to notice the Notre Dame was on fire. Cars
