In May, 2017, I had the pleasure of participating in a photography workshop lead by Valerie Jardin. It was a wonderful opportunity to shoot the streets of Paris. The companionship, food, weather and city all combined for a wonderful experience.
Paris is the capital and most populous city of France, with an area of 105 square kilometers (41 square miles) and a population of 2,206,488. With 200 000 inhabitants in 1328, Paris, then already the capital of France, was the most populous city of Europe. By comparison, London in 1300 had 80 000 inhabitants. Since the 17th century, Paris has been one of Europe's major centers of finance, commerce, fashion, science, music, and painting. The Paris Region had a GDP of €681 billion (US$850 billion) in 2016, accounting for 31 per cent of the GDP of France. In 2013–2014, the Paris Region had the third-highest GDP in the world and the largest regional GDP in the EU. According to the Economist Intelligence Unit Worldwide Cost of Living Survey in 2018, Paris was the second-most expensive city in the world, behind Singapore and ahead of Zurich, Hong Kong, Oslo and Geneva.
