    Heh, don't worry Omar, I'm not stupid enough to to provoke them. I had my girlfriend who speaks Turkish ask for permission before taking the shot. I've heard enough horror stories to make sure I watch my step around the police here.

    Will I be hassled in Paris if I try to shoot street scenes with a rangefinder?

    He probably used an SLR and wound up in some forgotten oubliette, feeding the rats and corpse beetles.

    Does France still run Devil's Island as a penal colony?

    I would find very strange if you were hassled in Paris for taking pictures. Just keep normal behaviour. Generally speaking I do take pictures of people, and also in Paris (more so, to take pictures of cafe life and such) just don't go into the nose of people.

    I was actually the subject of a "cafe life" stock picture. I was with a friend, drinking a beer at one of those small outside tables with three legs (guéridons) boulevard Saint-Germain-des-Prés (you pronounce that with a close e in Prés and an open e in Germain, avoid sounding the final "t" and all should be fine ) almost in front of Danton monument if I remember well and a she-photographer with a serious "but digital" camera came in front of us, took a picture blatantly of the two of us, and went away without a smile. I had no problem with people taking advantage of my discreet and elegant beauty in any case*

    I had four nocturne tripod sessions:
    Montmartre;
    Opéra - place Vendôme;
    Notre-Dame - Hôtel de Ville;
    Tour Eiffel from Champs-de-Mars.
    Never had anybody interested in what I was doing.

    The only place I found where they tell you not to take pictures is inside the Sacré-Coeur, which is a place where you would need in any case a tripod or a stand of some sort. That's a stronghold of bigotry so no surprise they have some added paranoia added to top it off.

    PS *Her caption probably was: couple of photographers destroyed by a tour of Paris in a sunny day under the delusion a beer can put them in shape again.
