Editor’s note: This is the ninth installment in the “Paris Vignettes” series by photographer William O’Such. William was introduced to silver halide photography by his father, Chester J. O’Such, via the family’s Ansco reflex camera and home darkroom. After college, William worked as a photographic engineer at Eastman Kodak, where he began to learn the art of photography. With his first SLR, a Canon AE-1, he photographed his inaugural voyage to Paris in 1982. This early spark turned into full passion when William became a Kodak expatriate in Paris from 1995-99. Before returning to the USA, William and his future wife Ineke bought an apartment in the Marais district. William continues to visit Paris at least twice a year to wander the streets, camera in hand, looking for the next vignette.
In the spirit of the season, I went through the last 10 years of my photos to find “summer” photos from our annual visits to our Paris apartment. Summer is a magical time compared to the Bay Area; the days are quite long and opportunity for street photography starts around 9 pm. Hopefully you will enjoy this 9th edition of “Paris Vignettes.”
It is a summer evening and you are hanging around the Saint Paul metro. Everyone is enjoying a wonderful evening on a warm summer night. Not a worry in the world.

Simple but elegant. During the summer month, couples enjoy evenings of dancing along the Seine.
