Paris – Garden of the Pont Neuf

Located at the very center of Paris, and linking the right and left banks of the Seine with the western end of the “Ile de la Cite”, the Pont Neuf (New Bridge) is the oldest bridge of Paris. It was built at the end of the XVIth century, under the reign of Henri IV whose equestrian statue dominates the area. A public garden lies below the bridge. It’s one of the most beautiful places in Paris. A (relatively) quiet place in a big city.

I was there in April, with my favorite camera of the day, a Nikon F3. I took those pictures with a 24mm Nikkor AF and used Kodak CN400 film.

A great film camera: the Nikon F3. Battle scarred – some would say scruffy – but so smooth to operate, with a wonderful viewfinder.


Not that large for a “pro” camera, but really heavy.
